Olympian Torah Bright’s social media “feed” raised a few eyebrows when she posted a photo of herself partially nude and breastfeeding her son — but she’s not apologizing for anything.
The decorated Aussie athlete who won gold in the halfpipe at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver and silver four years later in Sochi shared the photo to her Instagram and Facebook accounts on Mother’s Day.
She shared the photo as a celebration of motherhood and as a message of encouragement for fellow moms but instead faced some backlash.
“Reading some of these comments made me sad,” Bright wrote in a since-expired post on Instagram Stories, which included an image of her topless and in a headstand while breastfeeding her 10-month-old son.
One critic called the two-time X Games gold medallist’s photo “insane,” according to the New York Post.
“In my world, mothers should be each other’s cheerleaders (it’s hard enough). Embrace your quirkiness and finding the joy in every sh— thing that is motherhood,” the 34-year-old wrote.
“We all do it differently,” she added. “It is not wrong or right. Motherhood is pure.”
