California Mom Slammed for Being in Shape
A 32 year-old California mom is being slammed because of a photo that she posted on Facebook. The picture is of her and her three sons, the controversy come in because she is wearing a sports bra and shorts showing off her toned figure. The children are ages 3, 2 and 8-months, she also posted the words ‘Whats your excuse?’ this prompted many to accuse her of being a ‘Fat shaming woman’. Others have been supportive of Maria Kang’s photo, she told Yahoo! that she meant to inspire others. Maria received a slew of negative responses after she wrote this non apology. She wrote, “I’m sorry you took an image and resonated with it in such a negative way. I won’t go into details that I struggled with my genetics, had an eating disorder, work full time owning two businesses, have no nanny, am not naturally skinny and do not work as a personal trainer. What I WILL say is this. What you interpret is not MY fault. It’s yours. The first step in owning your life, your body and your destiny is to OWN the thoughts that come out of your own head. I didn’t create them. You created them. So if you want to continue ‘hating’ this image, get used to hating many other things for the rest of your life.” That, of course, brought a slew of new negative responses.
