THE BRONX - A 32-year-old mother is catching heat after a photo of her wearing ab-revealing workout gear, and her three children, went viral.

The photo is captioned “What’s your excuse?” and shows fitness enthusiast Maria Kang, of California, with her 3-year-old, 2-year-old and 8-month-old kids.

Many online accused her of “fat shaming” and asked her to remove the picture from her Facebook page.
