Fit California mom defends controversial photo Published: October 16, 2013

One mom in California is being forced to defend herself for being physically fit, reports ABC News.

Having a toned body is not normally a controversial topic, but when Maria Kang, a fitness enthusiast, posted a photo of herself in a sports bra and workout shorts alongside her three young sons with the caption “What’s Your Excuse?” to her Facebook page, social media uproar ensued.

The photo with her sons, now ages 1, 3 and 4, has garnered more than 12,000 Facebook shares and 16,000 comments, largely coming from critics accusing her of intentionally trying to shame overweight mothers.
