Fit Facebook mom ‘apologizes’ after post-pregnancy photo draws criticism

Posted on: 9:56 am, October 16, 2013, by

MariaKangWhatsYourExcuseThe mother whose post-pregnancy profile photo created a firestorm on Facebook has “apologized” for the photo.

In her profile photo, Kang is posing in a workout outfit with her three children (3, 2 and 8-months). However, it’s not the photo causing a firestorm, but rather the caption that reads “What’s your excuse?”

Thousands of people have commented on the image, some calling her a bully while others saying she’s an inspiration. Kang responded to the online firestorm.

“Some saying I’m a bully, I’m fat-shaming and I need to apologize for the hurt I’ve caused women. I get it. SO here’s my First and Final Apology,” Maria Kang posted.

“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 business’, have no nanny, am not naturally skinny and do not work as a personal trainer. I won’t even mention how I didn’t give into cravings for ice cream, french fries or chocolate while pregnant or use my growing belly as an excuse to be inactive.”

Kang went on to say, “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. You can either blame, complain or obtain a new level of thought by challenging the negative words that come out of your own brain.”

Kang answered more questions about her post and her post-pregnancy workout regime on her website.

    I like her attitude,all the haters and hurt feelings when they need to quit the negative thinking !! She also is a good breeder!!

  • Grace says:

    We have this whole anti-bullying thing going on for the kids, but what the heck is happening here?!?!?!?!?!?!?! She should be proud of herself and we should be too. If you’re so worried about other people making you look bad then do something about it or get over it.

  • There is nothing wrong with this picture she would be dressed like this if she was at the beach. she has abeautiful body for so one to have had.
    3 beautiful children

    • Jacob Lopez says:

      People aren’t upset at what she’s wearing. People were upset because they took it as her basically saying, “I work out. Why are you staying fat?”

  • Shelley says:

    I think she is very inspiring it tell’s me I can do it too.

  • Victorine Clarke says:

    WomenThis Is Nothing But Inspiring To Me! Keep On Motivating Us Mothers / Busy womenTo Keeping Up! I Love The Attitude!

  • Betty says:

    it simply says that she is a mother of three and works but still has time to work out! That is wonderful and for any one that feels she is making fun of you why don’t you grow up!

  • Quality breeding stock, right there. Tell those chubs what’s up, Momma!
