Woman shamed for 'distracting' breasts says diner 'prejudiced against big naturals'
Woman says she was shamed by fellow mums for looking too ‘nice’ ...

A woman has claimed she was shamed by a fellow restaurant-goer - for her “distracting” breasts.

In a viral tweet, Adrienne Airhart explained that she was out at dinner celebrating her birthday when her breasts were commented on by a female diner at a neighbouring table who later moved seats.

Airhart posted about what happened, writing: “Tonight at my birthday dinner I took off my shawl and the lady at the next table said, “well those are distracting” and moved tables. Still got it!*

“*prejudice against big naturals.”

The tweet has been liked over 34,000 times. The LA-based podcaster also posted a video of herself at the table with a dessert that had a sparkler in it for her birthday.

Captioning the clip, she joked: “This was me last night. I’m not even that hot the lady was just a hater.

“(Though her date did talk to me when she went to the bathroom…you can hear him).”

Despite the light-hearted tone, many have taken the prejudice against the woman very seriously and have also shared their own experiences of prejudice for their large breasts.

One person wrote: “I’ll never forget when I was on work experience at 15 years old and the lady I was ‘working’ for wrote in my evaluation that I dressed inappropriately.

“I didn’t, I was wearing exactly what they had told me to wear. I simply had breasts.”

Someone else wrote: “Literally i would wear a t shirt and leggings to school (same as half the hs population) and people would say i was dressed inappropriately bc i’m not stick shaped. like okay??”

Others congratulated Airhart for her ability to make someone feel so uncomfortable they moved seats.

A Twitter user responded: “Wow, she had to physically leave your presence???? Well done!”
