"What's Your Excuse?" Mom Got Her Toned Ass Banned From Facebook

Accomplished fat-shamer, Maria Kang, went so far in her campaign against “obese women” that she got herself banned from Facebook. Impressive!

In reaction to a recent campaign from Curvy Girl lingerie which featured non-models posing in the company’s product, the charming mother of three wrote the following.

I am motivated by constant body (fat) acceptance campaigns strewn all over the internet followed by comments with the context of ‘you go girl!’ and ‘more power to you!’ The popular and unrelenting support received to those who are borderline obese (not just 30-40lbs overweight) frustrates me as a fitness advocate who intimately understands how poor health negatively effects a family, a community and a nation.

And that got her banned. Though I think Kang needs to take it down a peg or fifty, I’m actually surprised this elicited a banning. I’ve seen much more hateful language on Facebook. Kang’s non-apology entitled “Sorry but not sorry” reads as follows:

I feel completely misunderstood. While I speak strongly about making one’s health a priority, the very last thing I intended to express was any level of shame. No one should be ashamed of who they are, at the same time, in order to desire something greater, you have to -at some level - be uncomfortable with where you are at. When we normalize being unhealthy we create complacency to positively change.

I doubt anyone here is firmly on Team Kang, but do you think a banning was in order?
