(WTVR) – The “fit mom” blocked from Facebook after one her posts was deemed offensive is once again using the social media platform to sound off.

“Thanks for all the support I received these last few days,” Maria Kang posted on Facebook earlier today. “So here are the facts:
1) I was temporarily banned from Facebook 2) My post regarding our Obesity Crisis in America has been removed.3) Facebook has said it was ‘human error’ and has allowed me access but did not restore the ‘offensive’ post.”

Kang copied her “offensive post” on her blog for others to read.

In a message to those who found her post offensive, Kang wrote:

There are not many things I’m sorry about in life, but recently I’ve been feeling a deep sense of sadness within me. After being blocked on Facebook and reading the Yahoo article explaining the ban, 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.

Last month, Kang also apologized after she shared a post-pregnancy picture of herself and her children under the heading “What’s your excuse?”

“Some saying I’m a bully, I’m fat-shaming and I need to apologize for the hurt I’ve caused women. I get it. SO here’s my First and Final Apology,” Maria Kang posted along side the photo of her with her three young children.

    People are just too sensitive…Since when is a fit, beautiful mother pictured with her kids offensive…If those offended were actually working on themselves instead of tearing down someonw who obviously cares about herself, then maybe they would applaud her…C’mon people, the youngest kid is 8 months & she hasn’t missed a beat, she should be praised for her commitment, not condemned

    I think that ” cares about herself” is the salient motive that comes to mind. She reminds me of the narcissistic bully that has to have the last say and generalizes about other women ; unable to put forward a constructive comment………… attention seeking , unable to have an opinion in private……..say no more

    “What’s your excuse” says it all. There are millions of Americans who are not large because they eat but because they have endocrine system disorders. She is just stupid as hell and hopefully she gets something one day that puts her in their shoes.

      I’m sure she has more than a couple of defects of her own.

      No point being angry with her,I doubt she was trying to be malicious. Some people are just buttholes who can’t be bothered with anything outside of their own personal sphere.

      She’s got 3 kids, she WILL be humbled more than a few times by the time they reach adulthood.

      There are millions of Americans who get told by their doctors that their endocrine systems have nothing to do with them being fat. Is that what you mean? That sorry old excuse applies to those who it actually applies to, which is not millions of people in this country. Doctors laugh about how many fat people want to claim a special medical reason for being fat, it’s an old joke within the medical profession at this point.

        Get your facts straight before condemning or judging people. If you feel safe living in your glass house then I guess more power to you. Me…I would be too afraid someone would cast that first stone through my glass cuz “I’m not perfect.” Are you really?

  • TL Dragon

    Surprised a “butter face” like her would open her protein hole about others.

    In any event she is correct, obesity is not awesome for people or their families. If you don’t like what she had to say, don’t put yourself in her audience.

    Problem solved. Stop whining already.

  • Shane

    America has the highest obesity rate in the entire world. God bless this woman for making people knowledgeable somehow, as the standard approach clearly hasn’t been working.

  • Frank

    She tries to speak the truth, people get pissed. Yeah she’s a narcissist, thanks Dr. Internet-Freuds. You’re opinions are very valuable, I’m sure, but here’s the thing: Obesity is called an epidemic by our government for a reason. Somebody says it on their facebook page, you flip out? You get offended? And she’s the one with problems? Yeah, sure.

    • Barb

      Dr. Frank…exactly what is YOUR point? Obesity is called an epidemic by our government for a reason. Now I am really laughing. You actually are listening to what our government is saying. Let me tell you something about the stupidity in the white house. Miss First Lady Health Nut Over Kill flew on Air Force One to Watertown, WI at the tax payers expense to tell school children at one particular school to drink more water. Are you F*&$%@# serious? That’s the stupidity of what goes on there and you are believing the government says obesity is an epidemic. NO…HOMELESSNESS FOR VETERANS AND OTHERS IS AN EPIDEMIC, CHILDREN GOING HUNGRY IS THIS GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS IS AN EPIDEMIC, UNEMPLOYMENT IS AN EPIDEMIC AND LASTLY STUPIDITY IS AN EPIDEMIC. I love my country, but by God…I have no use for the stupid people running it or even stupider people like you who believe it. You don’t know all the facts about this situation, do you? So just SHUT THE HELL UP!

    endocrine system disorders seriously? How may people in Ethiopia have that? How many people in PoW camps around the world have that?
    How many you find in any of those places that are over weight?
    Look around China or India?
    Get real world.
    Get real, I’m fat and I know for sure it is my fault even though the doctor says I have a endocrine system disorder.

    Glad to see a healthy debate going on…The lady has the right to be proud of her body…People post grad pics, pet pics & all kinds of craziness on Facebook, but this beautiful lady is being beat down because she is proud of her sexy body….She did nothing wrong & if you took offense, then maybe you need prayer
