She did as he asked but it wasn't the result he was looking for.
Melanie Dudley was nursing her 4-month-old baby at a restaurant while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico when the manager came over and asked her to cover up. Dudley complied and the results were hilarious. Her husband snapped the following photo which has gone viral on social media.
The photo was shared by a friend of Dudley's mother-in-law.
Needless to say the image garnered a lot of responses.
Breastfeeding mom told to cover up, instead puts cloth over own face. https://t.co/B5yyHxriup https://t.co/TKhIKNiOnc— FOX 10 Phoenix (@FOX 10 Phoenix)1533669874.0

@FOX4 Let’s not forget to mention the kid is 4 months old. That, in itself, speaks volumes about her as a mother. T… https://t.co/e9nR4E4RnG— Janet (@Janet)1533705061.0

@Yahoo Not hilarious to me. Many of us are moms and do not like to see that. It is personal.— Manor of Manners (@Manor of Manners)1533677131.0
Although this encounter took place in Mexico, breastfeeding is legal without a cover in all 50 U.S. states.
