BBC Radio DJ likens breastfeeding in public to having sex in the outdoor and urinating.Reuters

A BBC Radio DJ has been suspended after what critics have called a misogynistic rant, where he likens breastfeeding to urinating and having sex in public.

Alex Dyke took the liberty to go on air and demand "librarian-type, moustached" women to hold some sort of a sign before breastfeeding in public.

Calling on breastfeeding to be banned, Dyke said, reported The Telegraph: "Time has moved on... Couldn't mums just stay at home and do it? You wouldn't get yummy mummies breastfeeding in public...because they're very image conscious and they know it's not a great look."

Dyke further went on to claim that all men dislike public breastfeeding with the exception of "wimps who are scared of their wives."

Following the explosion of angry callers and online criticism over Dyke's ill-judged rant, the BBC has suspended the out-spoken DJ until investigations are over.

"Following unacceptable comments made on air yesterday Alex Dyke has been suspended pending an investigation, so he will not be on air tomorrow," said a spokesman for BBC, while the organization has assured the audience that Dyke has been informed of his "ill-judged" comments.

Meanwhile, despite taking responsibility of his comments and apologizing on air "for any offence caused", social media users remained critical of the DJ.
