Maria Kang's Facebook photo draws criticism

Maria Kang is getting a lot of attention for a Facebook post featuring her three kids and her rock hard abs. Some of the attention is good. Some, not so good.

In her profile photo, Kang is posing in a revealing workout outfit with her 3-year-old, 2-year-old and 8-month-old sons. A caption reads, "What's your excuse?" Almost 16,000 people have commented on the image. Some are leaving words of encouragement, while others are calling her a bully.

Kang responded to the criticism in another Facebook post. Here is part of her statement:

"...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?"

{ }Kang, 32, describes herself as a fitness enthusiast and says the photo was meant to inspire others.
