Jimmy Fallon Debates Pros and Cons of Time’s Breastfeeding Mom Jamie Lynne Grumet
Time Magazine’s cover of 26-year-old Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her fairly large three-year-old son was the talk of the internet last week. Whatever one thinks of “attachment parenting,” there seemed to quickly develop a consensus that the cover was an error in judgement on both Time and Grumet’s part.
However, now that we’ve had some time to “digest” the image, is it possible that we were all being too critical?
Fair-minded soul that he is, Jimmy Fallon debated the controversial cover on his “Pros and Cons” segment. Check it out.
“Pro,” Fallon offered. “The mom was professional and courteous during the shoot. Con, the kid sucked.”
And it pretty much just went on like that. So if Time and Grumet were looking for a reprieve from the criticism, they weren’t going to get it from Fallon.
Fallon did take some of the heat off the magazine and the mommy by showing an “even more shocking” ad for his new comedy album ‘Blow Your Pants Off,’ which features him sans pants. Thankfully there were no three-year olds in that image.
