Meet the Breastfeeding Mom Who Took On Instagram and Won

Originally posted 05/14/2014 01:00PM

It was the unkindest Mother's Day gift of all: A Canadian mother says she had her Instagram account shut down after a commenter allegedly complained about her breastfeeding pictures.

In her job as a professional portrait photographer, Toronto mom Heather Bays focuses on images of mothers and babies. But when she turned the camera on herself, Instagram revolted.

In April, Bays posted a photo of herself breastfeeding her 2-year-old daughter Audrey to the popular photo-sharing service. A tasteful black-and-white shot, the image was similar to many others posted on mothering blogs around the Web.

Toronto Mayor Admits He Smoked Crack

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Admits He Smoked Crack

Originally posted 11/05/2013 01:50PM

The mayor of Toronto is saying he smoked crack "probably a year ago" when he was in a "drunken stupor."

Rob Ford's admission to reporters Tuesday follows months of accusations during which the embattled mayor refused to step down. The allegations that he had been caught on video smoking crack surfaced in May.

"Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine," Ford told reporters Tuesday outside his office. "There have been times when I've been in a drunken stupor. That's why I want to see the tape. I want everyone in the city to see this tape. I don't even recall there being a tape or video. I want to see the state that I was in."

Police said last week they had obtained a copy of the video.

The Spring Breakers head north!

Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens (and about 48 others from the cast of Spring Breakers) reunited for dinner – sans James Franco – in the private dining room at Brassaii Restaurant and Lounge in Toronto on Friday night.

"Selena was stunning and very excited about being here," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Both girls looked very elegant."

Upon arriving, Gomez took a slight detour before entering the restaurant.

"There were some young girls waiting on the red carpet set up outside. She sidestepped her handler and took some Thelma and Louise style photos with her fans," a source says.

"She also signed a 9-year-old boy's baseball cap ... and demanded Vanessa do the same."

"It was all very cute, she was so sweet to do it," the source adds.
