Oh, Hoda ... do you have any idea what you've done?

Not surprisingly, her slam on breastfeeding sparked outrage online, everywhere from Facebook to Twitter and beyond.

For instance, shannon t on Twitter slammed the hosts, including the trending hashtag #NormalizeBreastfeeding, used by the breastfeeding mom on the Elle cover:

Kathie Lee & Hoda from Today Show Seeing breastfeeding is TMI for your precious eyes? So sorry to hear that maybe this will help. Spam them with your #Brelifes the more people see it the less "TMI" it is.

Over on Instagram, Heather lentile turned the tables and poked fun of the hosts sipping wine at 9 a.m. on air:

I'm so glad that Today is getting heat, because Hoda's comment is totally out of line! I hope she's learned her lesson: Breastfeeding mamas are refusing to stay in hiding, and the more you try to keep them under wraps the more vocal they become.

How do you feel about Hoda's comment about breastfeeding?
