The breastfeeding debate rages on.

Kim Kardashian came under fire by her followers on Saturday with what seemed like an anti-breast feeding comment.  She tweeted, “EWW Im at lunch, the woman at the table next 2 me is breast-feeding her baby w no coverup then puts baby on the table and changes her diaper.”

The tweet put her in the middle of what remains a contentious subject: Selma Hayak nursed a starving baby in Sierra Leone on camera to lift the stigma against breast-feeding.  Women in the Phillipines kicked off a mass breast-feeding event last year. Facebook’s ban of photos of nipples angered nursers and resulted in thousands of protestors uploading nursing photos to their profiles.

After Twitter criticism, Kardashian walked back her comments, tweeting: “My sister breast feeds! Its a natural beautiful thing, there’s nothing wrong w it, but she covers herself, not w her boobs exposed”

“And you DON’T change a dirty at the dinner table…u use the restroom. Everyone was complaining! Just unsanitary”

Breast-feeding aside, I’m with Kim on this one — changing a baby at a dinner table is just gross.
