TORRINGTON, CT - If you still haven't learned, sometimes it's better to just mind your own business. One example is going viral online after a shopper at a Target in Connecticut tried to shame a mother for breast-feeding her baby in public.

Jessie Maher's video has been viewed more than 3-million times. Her post says the man called her a "whore" and started demanding a refund from Target employees. It only took moments for onlookers to rush to the mother's defense.

Target employees got involved and asked the man to leave. No word on whether he got his refund.

A company spokesperson says guests who breast feed in public areas of Target are welcome to do so.
