Mom Asked To Conceal Her Breast Feeding Plans Protest

A woman who was asked to cover herself while breast feeding at a Denny's restaurant in western North Carolina says she plans to protest.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Wednesday that Crystal Everitt said she was discriminated against when approached by a manager about feeding her 1-year-old son.

The 28-year-old mother said she will hold a nurse-in protest this weekend. She said if managers apologize, mothers will have lunch at the restaurant.

Restaurant officials said Everitt wasn't asked to leave, but to conceal herself or move to a more private area.

Regional director of operations Rick Pate said Everitt "was exposed in a manner that was causing discomfort toward other guests to the point of them complaining to management and leaving the restaurant."
