FARGO — A social media storm ensued after an area woman was asked to leave the West Acres Chick-fil-A for breastfeeding.

According to a Facebook post by Macy Hornung, her family went to Friday’s soft opening of the new Chick-fil-A by West Acres when she was asked to leave because she was breastfeeding without a cover:

“FM people: Just a heads up, we just went to the soft open of Chick-fil-A West Acres and the owner basically kicked me out for breastfeeding without a cover.

“The owner came to our table where I was showing no more than the upper portion of my breast, barely more than what was visible in my shirt and asked me to cover. I tried to explain that I couldn’t, because my baby refuses to be covered and she started harping about the children and men who can see my indecency and I need to cover. I said they could practice the simple art of looking away and tried to cite North Dakota breastfeeding laws. She told me if I chose not to cover, then she would have to ask me to leave, so I told her my review would reflect my experience and I would be relaying the experience in every local mommy group.”

Kimberly Flamm, owner/operator of the Chick-fil-A West Acres location, released an official statement:

“My goal is to provide a warm and welcoming environment for all of my guests and I sincerely apologize for the way I handled this situation.”
