Stop Attacking My GF's Breast-Feeding Pic

3/5/2014 4:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0305_ash3nicole_instagramMiami Dolphins linebacker Philip Wheeler says his girlfriend is being unfairly attacked over a picture showing her breast-feeding their son ... and now he's calling for people to stop the boob hate, asap.

Wheeler's GF is model Ashley Nicole -- who recently posted a photo showing her son latched on to her right breast inside of their home. She included the caption, "Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called... Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeautiful."

Problem is ... not everyone felt the same way -- and social media erupted with people trashing Nicole for posting the pic in the first place. 

TMZ Sports spoke to Wheeler ... who says, "I wish everybody would just leave it alone" ... adding, "She's a model. She takes pictures for a living."

Wheeler pointed out that Gisele posted a breast-feeding pic back in December -- and was widely praised for it -- and doesn't understand why his GF isn't getting the same love. 

As for the pic, it's still posted on Ashley's Instagram page -- and we're told she has no plans to take it down.

Even if she is doing to get attention who cares? As far as I'm concerned it's a "free" add for breastfeeding! Good for her for showing the public that there is no shame in naturally feeding your baby! You go to any other country and this would not be an issue! In some countries this is the ONLY way to feed your child. America is so twisted as a whole that all people see more is a "sex toy". To those who see it like that, educate yourself and stop being so ignorant! And you know what? People look up to stars so much maybe there should be more pics of them breastfeeding like this. Maybe then we can feed or children comfortably without throwing a blanket over them! If you have such a problem with it, put a blanket over your head so you don't have to see it! She should be put on a billboard in every state on every expressway until people get comfortable with something that is completely natural.

You people can equate breastfeeding to taking a dump when you eat a **** sandwich. Breastfeeding is eating. If breastfeeding is sexual or inappropriate, a bottle is a dildo. Seriously. If you don't like it, don't look, but don't put your oppression off onto other people that are trying to feed their children. People take pictures of everyday life all the time. Breastfeeding is part of HER everyday life. If it's a statement, so ****ing be it! It obviously NEEDS to be a statement if there are ignorant *******s running around saying its gross and bad.

Actually, it's the way she's walking around holding the baby like a "thing" as she continues her normal everyday lifestyle? It's eerie. The baby will have difficulty digesting while she's bouncing around. She should be in a comfortable position to be PROTECTIVE as their child receives nutrition. Didn't know that was rocket science...

The only thing that is making me uncomfortable is it looks like she is going to drop the kid.

NOPE not buying it!
This is disgraceful!!!! What is the aim? Why do we need to see this? Who cares that she breastfeeds. Are there any private moments in life anymore? Are people so needy for attention that they have to post every detail of their lives. AND the biggest problem I have with this and so many other post is when it includes young children- it's their privacy that is being violated. COME ON SISTAHS--we all remember how upset we would be at our own Mother when she would get on the phone with her friends and tell ALL our business!!! But NOWdays it's their ENTIRE CHILDHOOD played out in front of COMPLETE strangers!!!!! Aggggggh!
