‘What’s your excuse?’ Mom accused of fat-shaming after posting baby-weight loss photo

TORONTO – Maria Kang has three kids all under the age of three years old and six-pack abs, to boot. And in a photo flaunting her toned figure and young family, the mom and business woman asks others, “What’s your excuse?”

The caption on her Facebook photo suggests the photograph is meant to “inspire people everywhere.” But so far, it’s only stirred up trouble, with critics accusing her of “fat-shaming” other moms. Kang is dressed in a workout bra and matching shorts next to her three sons now aged 1 to 3 years old.

Kang, a 32-year-old Sacramento fitness blogger, received some 22,600 comments on the photo, 16,000 shares and another 191,000 “likes” on the infamous Facebook photo. Comments range from praise to some nasty name-calling.

  1. I think she is being unnecessarily shamed. Her message is that having children isn’t a good excuse for being unhealthy and there’s nothing wrong with that.
