Kasey Kahne apologized for his comment about seeing a woman breastfeeding at the supermarket in Mooresville, North Carolina.
Kasey Kahne tweeted, “Just walking though supermarket. See a mom breast feeding little kid. Took second look because obviously I was seeing things. I wasn’t!”
He then started to describe the scene he saw, “One boob put away one boob hanging!! #nasty.”
With being so disgusted by what he saw he added, “I don’t feel like shopping anymore or eating.”
Those tweets caused major uproar and he got flooded with comments he didn’t like from some of his 100,000 followers on Twitter.
A woman named Deana P. tweeted Kasey Kahne about his breastfeeding tweet,
“Wow, you’re kind of a douchebag, where would you propose that baby eat, the restroom? Would you eat in the restroom?”
“I hope someday you have a kid and someone tells your wife that feeding your child looks nasty.
He responded with, “And your a dumb b*tch.”
To which the lady reponded, “Stay classy a**hole.”
Kasey Kahne deleted those tweets while Deana P. kept going, “Btw, my husband will be a little bit proud that @kaseykahne called me a dumb b***h.”
He finally made an apology on Facebook around 6 p.m. on Wednesday night just hours after the uproar of tweets and comments he was receiving.
“I understand that my comments regarding breastfeeding posted on Twitter were offensive to some people,” he wrote. “For that, I apologize. It was in no way my intention to offend any mother who chooses to breastfeed her child, or, for that matter, anyone who supports breastfeeding children. I want to make that clear.”
“In all honestly, I was surprised by what I saw in a grocery store. I shared that reaction with my fans on Twitter. It obviously wasn’t the correct approach, and, after reading your feedback, I now have a better understanding of why my posts upset some of you.”
“My comments were not directed at the mother’s right to breastfeed. They were just a reaction to the location of that choice, and the fashion in which it was executed on that occasion.”
“I respect the mother’s right to feed her child whenever and wherever she pleases.”
“Glad everyone had a good Christmas! Thanks for all the feedback. I gained some new perspectives today”
“My Christmas week has been great. Got a couple cool presents and hung out with family and friends. It’s been relaxing.”
It’s also been reported by TheStar that Great Clips, Kasey Kahne NASCAR sponsors had to make an apology as well and take fault for his actions, “A few hours before his apology, racing-team sponsors Great Clips, had posted its own mea culpa to two women Kahne had attacked online: “Our apologies for this. Please know that response was uncalled for & does not reflect our organization.”
