Southwestern United State's Arizona's capital city Phoenix is a bastion of leisure and lifestyle. Aside from that, it's a cradle to a weird breed of daily news. Just recently, a mother doing a normal maternal activity to a relatively unusual situation caused scandalous feedbacks from people around. Forty-one-year-old Patricia Lawrence breastfed her 12-Year Old son Andrew in a Burger King branch in the city.
Look what happened next:
This is where the 'crime' took place.
According to the reports, and Patricia's account, while peacefully dining in for lunch at the restaurant, pre-teen Andrew suddenly felt thirsty.
Without further hesitations, the 41-year old mom gave a solution: breastfeeding. He asked her son to come over, then she gave the 'thing'.
Courtney Haeckel, a customer who witnessed that act, was disturbed since she realized that breastfeeding an almost teenage boy is not appropriate. She immediately posted about this incident on social media, the world was a bit shaken.
Aside from the witnesses at Burger King and the people of social media, a Social welfare department in the US--Children Protection Services--told immediately that the child should undergo foster care.
This happening was a shock to the management, so they managed to push the Lawrence's out of the Burger King's vicinity.
She realized that Burger King never gave her the best, that's why she vowed not to come back to any of their branches ever again. She added that she will dine at McDonald's then. I wonder who's to blame. What do you think?
