A California woman is defending herself after a photo she posted got a lot of criticism. The photo shows 32-year-old Maria Kang in a workout bra and shorts, and posing with her three young sons. Written above her head is the caption, "what's your excuse?"
The photo has been seen on Facebook more than 16 million times, and gotten more than 12,000 comments. While many people were encouraging, some people online are accusing her of "fat shaming" and calling her a bully.
Kang says she just wanted to inspire other women to get fit.
