Karlesha Thurman graduated from California State University last month and her friend took the above picture of Karlesha breastbfeeding her 3-month-old baby while in her cap and gown. The photo has stirred up some controversy and the image has gone viral.

“I was proud of the fact that not only did I graduate but that I got to share the moment with the one person who is the most important to me and that is my daughter,” Karlesha told Today.

Karlesha posted the photo to Facebook last week and it has since garnered words of support as well as some negative comments. Some say it’s inappropriate and that she should have covered up.

Karlesha says she’s not really sure what all the fuss is about. “I did it to show it’s natural, it’s normal, there’s nothing wrong with it,” Karlesha said. “I didn’t even know there was a big controversy about breast-feeding in public until all of this happened,”
