A breastfeeding mother in the UK has been accused of squirting her milk at a woman who asked her to move out of sight of her "very easily distracted" husband.

The incident is reported to have taken place at a public park in Dartford, near London.

The woman claiming to have been sprayed with breast milk took to a shared Facebook page to complain, but faced a backlash from commenters who sided with the mother.

"To the lady who thought it was appropriate to breastfeed her baby whist my child and very easily distracted husband sat nearby - I don't think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private, telling me to f**k off and squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for. I hope you are ashamed of yourself," the anonymous post reads.

However, under UK law, it is actually illegal to ask a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place.

The original Facebook post has over 280 shares and 570 comments, almost all of which side with the mother and slam the complainant - and her husband.

"If your husband is so easily distracted then surely it would have been easy to distract him from the breastfeeding woman. The only people in the wrong here are you and your pervy, leery husband mate," wrote one.

>"You are one pathetic woman projecting your own insecurities by using your husband as an excuse. Grow up and get a grip," scolded another.

"I think there's only one tit worth worrying about in this story and that's the distracted husband," said another.

While asking a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place is illegal in the UK, squirting someone with bodily fluids can also be classed as assault. Australia and the US have seen cases in recent years where milk sprayers have been charged with attacking police.
