Man angry about breastfeeding mom in Target (Screenshot/Facebook video)

Jessie Maher paused her shopping trip to Target on Monday to breastfeed her infant. But she wasn't expecting the mundane activity to spark a confrontation with an outraged older man.


According to Fox61, she was in Target in Torrington, Connecticut, at about 11:30 a.m. on Monday when the incident occurred. She was able to film the whole thing, and posted it to social media.

"Because I'm feeding my baby, this man is going crazy," Maher says. "And I'm shaking. He wants a refund because I'm breastfeeding my baby."

She recounted on Facebook:

"Before the video started rolling he looked at me and said (very angrily), "can't you do that somewhere else?... That's fucking disgusting.. You are nasty" (he said a few other things under his breath) I responded with, "I am feeding my baby, and I have the right to do it here...walk the fuck away..leave me the fuck alone" He responded with, (as he's walking closer and closer to me and getting louder) "you are fucking disgusting...you are fucking disgusting...you are fucking disgusting...you whore" he said a bunch more bullshit that I can not remember ....by this point EVERYONE came to my defense! Target staff and shoppers... Then I started rolling the camera....

A man can be seen standing at a food counter and yelling people who are defending Maher, who at one point begins crying.

“Can’t you do that somewhere else? That’s f****** disgusting," the man says to her. He also calls her a "whore."

At one point, a woman walks up to Maher and stands protectively in front of her, telling the man that if he is offended by her baby feeding, then look away.

"You're fine," the woman says. "He has no right to be doing what he's doing. You have a baby in your hands."

Target employees then surround the man and direct him out of the store.

"Look at all these wonderful people coming to my defense," Maher says tearfully, apparently moved by the response around her.

"I'm good, I'm feeding my baby, we're chill. And I have some defending women around me, thank you so much," Maher can be heard saying at the end of the encounter.
