Plus-size model Tess Holliday is definitely no stranger to having her body commented on by strangers on the internet, but just because she's used to it doesn't mean she's a fan of it. And when it involves her baby, she puts her foot down, hard.

Holliday posted an Instagram picture of herself breastfeeding her baby Saturday at the Women's March in L.A. and surprise, surprise, a lot of people made rude comments on it.

The caption to the photo originally read,

Breastfeed anywhere ✊🏻 Thank you to my friend @jessicalouiseimagery for capturing this moment during today's @womensmarchla 💕 #normalizebreastfeeding #womensmarchla

After receiving the rude comments on Instagram, Holliday updated the caption, adding,

Edited to add: Those saying that I should "cover up"
You mean when I'm breastfeeding MY baby who was a) hungry & b) screaming because he was overly tired & the crowd overloaded his senses & it was the only way to comfort him?! I will feed my child anywhere I want. Also CA state law protects me to do so. Keep your uneducated opinions off my body.

But it's not all bad, because the kind and supportive comments outweighed the mean ones by about 100 to 1.
