Fat-shaming is entirely justified
An exercise-loving mother-of-three who has continually made headlines with her 'fat shaming' views, has now stirred further controversy by suggesting people who 'look overweight' are clearly unhealthy.
Maria Kang, 32, from Sacramento, California, appeared on CNN this Saturday along with Chrystal Bougon, a plus-size lingerie store owner who she slammed last week for launching a 'selfie' photo campaign promoting 'real beauty'.
During a live TV showdown between the two women, Ms Kang insisted that she was not a fat-shamer, but said the ladies depicted in Ms Bougon's photo gallery 'are not how real women look like or should look like.'...
Ms Bougon, 45, who sells underwear in size 14 and up at her San Jose-based store, Curvy Girl Lingerie, also voiced her outrage after hearing what Ms Kang had to say.
'You can't tell whether or not I work out. You can't tell how healthy I am by looking at a photo of me. You just can't,' she responded.
On her website Ms Bougon states that she has been 'curvy' since she was in Third grade and now makes it her mission to make other plus-size women feel 'sexy and confident' in their own skin.
