There has been much controversy on the topic of breastfeeding and it doesn't seem to get any easier between the pro and con groups. On March 12 Wetpaint shares that Miami Dolphins' star Philip Wheeler is supporting his model girlfriend Ashley Nichole in her choice to leave the breastfeeding photo on Instagram (attached).

In an interview, Wheeler says that he wishes that people would just stop nitpicking whether you're fore or against. She's a model, she takes pictures for a living. He also reminded us that just a couple months ago Gisele Bundchen posted a similar picture and it didn't get the kind of hateful and mean comments that Ashley's photo has received.

When asked herself, Ashley says that she has no desire to remove the photo and she isn't going to. The photo in question included the caption: “Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called… Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeautiful." There have been all kinds of backlash from the photo since it has gone viral, including people stating that she shared a photo that was too intimate.

There are many celebrity moms that support breastfeeding and it is quite interesting that some receive praise for doing what is considered the right thing for their baby, while others, like Ashley, are harassed. It's true what they say, "Haters gonna hate."
