Fitness enthusiast issues apology over viral ‘fat-shaming’ photo

Maria Kang, 32, owns two residential care homes for the elderly, runs a fitness non-profit that she founded and is a freelance writer. The former fitness competitor also has three kids. Kang believes that if she has time to stay in shape, everyone else should, too.

To get that message across, Kang posted a photo on her Facebook page that showed her posed in minimal clothing with her three boys around her, the words “What’s your excuse?” stamped on top. The image, which she originally posted last year, was supposed to be inspirational, she explained to Yahoo! Shine. Instead, the picture has gone viral with many commenters taking offense.
