Facebook Mom Sticks It to ‘Shaming Police’By: Nicole Barnes - October 14, 2013
Maria Kang is clearly a woman of beauty, and– according to her web page–also a woman of many accomplishments aside from that. Kang has received several awards, landed herself on the cover of magazines, and was featured in– well, it goes on further from there,… much further.
Along with all of Maria Kang’s numerous accomplishments, she somehow managed to pop out three children,… and the chic still looks smoking! Kang is a fitness enthusiast and model (among other things of course), which explain her admirable gusto. But recently, Kang has come under fire by the ever-active, finger-pointing Shaming Police of Facebook.
After seeing a recent photo of Kang with her three children topped with the question What’s Your Excuse?, some viewers became upset (or jealous!) and accused Kang of fat shaming women. Despite the criticism, Kang has stood firm against all the haters with tons of support from Facebook followers. In reply, Kang gave these closing statements in a reasonably extensive post on Facebook:
“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.
With that said, obesity and those who struggle with health-related diseases is literally a ‘bigger’ issue than this photo. Maybe it’s time we stop tip-toeing around people’s feelings and get to the point. So What’s Your Excuse?”
