I love VS, but this is ridiculous, at the Blaze, "THE SHOCKING THING A VICTORIA’S SECRET EMPLOYEE TOLD A MOTHER WHO WAS TRYING TO BREASTFEED HER BABY":
An Austin, Texas, mom said she felt humiliated when, after spending $150 at a Victoria’s Secret store, she was told by an employee she couldn’t breastfeed her son in a fitting room but could, however, do so in the alley instead.There's video at the link.
Ashley Clawson told KTBC-TV she asked the employee Monday if she might be able to use a private dressing room to nurse her 4-month-old and considers the refusal a violation of Texas law.
“[She] said ‘no, you cannot nurse your son in our fitting room, but you can go outside to the alley and nurse him there. No one usually goes there,’” Clawson recounted of the incident to the news station.
Clawson didn’t end up taking the Victoria’s Secret employee up on her alley offer.
Afterward, she said she called her husband and, when she got home, took to social media.
“I have to blast Victoria’s Secret at the Domain for telling me I wasn’t aloud [sic] to nurse my very hungry, fussy son in their fitting room after I spent a fair amount in their store. She actually told me to go outside and walk down an alley where no one ‘usually’ goes and nurse him. Seriously?!? Lost a customer for sure,” Clawson wrote on Facebook.
They should fire the employee, issue an apology, and give the women a year's supply of lingerie. We'll see...
