NASCAR's Kasey Kahne apologizes for breast-feeding tweet
Kahne tweeted: "Just walking though supermarket. See a mom breast feeding little kid. Took second look because obviously I was seeing things. I wasn't!"
He then described what he saw in graphic detail followed by #nasty. Kahne added: "I don't feel like shopping anymore or eating."
Unsurprisingly, he received a flood of angry tweets from his more than 100,000 followers.

Kahne, a 31-year-old who finished the year fourth in the NASCAR standings, apologized Wednesday by posting this to his account: "I understand that my comments regarding breastfeeding posted on Twitter were offensive to some people ... I wanted to apologize for saying what I said to you yesterday. It was out of line. If you want to talk more please DM me."
