Jamie Oliver responds to backlash over breastfeeding comments



Appearing LBC radio, Jamie Oliver made comments about how Britain has the "worst breastfeeding in the world" and about gathering information on breastfeeding as he's expecting his 5th spawn to come into the world. About the benefits, he said, "If you breastfeed for more than six months, women are 50 per cent less likely to get breast cancer. When do you ever hear that? Never. It's easy, it's more convenient, it's more nutritious, it's better, it's free.

This drew ire from listeners, many of which accused him of mansplaining. One caller to the show said, "We didn’t know what to do with our nipples until Jamie Oliver popped his head above the parapet."

As attention to the issue grew on social media and in the press, Jamie finally addressed it on Twitter.
