The Walking Dead’s Christian Serratos Brilliantly Responds to Breastfeeding Backlash
Another day, another woman being shamed for doing something that’s completely natural. The Walking Dead’s Christian Serratos is fighting back after being shamed for sharing a pic of herself breastfeeding her baby while working. And while we can’t believe this is something that women are *still* dealing with, Serratos’ response is definitely worthy of applause.
Two days ago, the 26-year-old mama posted a pic of herself breastfeeding her little one (whose name and sex have been kept private by the doting parents). The post, which Serratos captioned with a thank you to Jewels by Durrani for her custom necklace that celebrates her little family, is a beautiful image of a mother and child together — but some folks couldn’t keep their snark to themselves.

Commenters trolled the first-time mom in pretty much every way possible — from claiming that the pic was “disgusting” to accusing Serratos of simply wanting to show off her body (ugh!). It was a pretty fierce example of what many (!) other women have experienced.
Serratos wasn’t having ANY of it, though.
Posting a second picture, again where she’s breastfeeding her little one, this time while also doing her makeup in a Walking Dead trailer, she added an on-point caption, writing, “This is my body and my page. So I will post what I want, when I want. Those who disapprove can suck my left tit. 😘 #workingmom #chill.”
What do you think about the fact that women are *still* being shamed for breastfeeding pics? Let us know @BritandCo!
