DOWNEY ( — A Cal State Long Beach student is sparking controversy over her decision to post a picture of herself online  breastfeeding her daughter during her graduation ceremony.

The photo of Karlesha Thurman, 25, nursing her 3-month-old daughter has gone viral.

Thurman’s sister said her niece began to cry right after the 25-year-old mom received her degree in accounting.

“You know when babies cry when they’re hungry. When your baby’s hungry, you feed them. And Karlesha is not afraid of breastfeeding Aaliyah in public,” Karla Thurman said.
