People Are Outraged Over a Woman Breastfeeding Her Baby at Her College Graduation

25-year-old Karlesha Thurman just graduated from California State University, Long Beach.  And she posted a photo from the ceremony on Facebook that made the Internet go CRAZY.



Karlesha is a single mother, and she brought her newborn daughter with her to graduation.  Then she had someone take a photo of her BREASTFEEDING during the ceremony.



A Facebook group called Black Women Do Breastfeed reposted the photo . . . and it set everyone off.  Some people wrote in supportive comments . . . but a lot of people wrote the sad, negative stuff you'd expect.



Some thought it was inappropriate to breastfeed at a graduation.  Some thought it was strange to post a photo of it.  And of course, some went after her for being a single mother.



Black Women Do Breastfeed shut their page down, but Karlesha is staying strong. 



She posted on Facebook, quote, "I had my daughter one week into my last semester, she was my motivation to keep going, so me receiving my BA was OUR moment, so glad I captured the moment and . . . shared it with the world."
