adidasredUnless you’ve been in a coma, in a submarine on the bottom of the ocean, or under a rock, you know Maria Kang has taken some heat for her fitness picture.

A lot of heat.

During the first airing of The Today Show, Matt Lauer and the team ripped the picture apart. Later on second airing (Kathie Lee has named it “Booze-Day Tuesday”), Hoda Kotb made the attack personal.

“I don’t like people who brag about something good…I like to walk by and say, ‘wow, you look great, what are you doing?’ I don’t like it when someone says, ‘look at me.’ I think there are lots of examples of people that look great, but there’s something about the tone, and showing the body, that grosses me out…”. (Hoda Kotb, Today.com – next to her big glass of wine)

What a snot.

Maria-Kang-590x737Maria Kang is a wife, momma, personal trainer, fitness blogger, in recovery from an eating disorder, business and non-profit entrepreneur…and a MODEL. She’s won eleven beauty and fitness titles. Maria is a cover model for Max Sports and Fitness, Sacramento Parent, as well as a guest writer/columnist for a number of magazines. Oh – and the entire Kang family was featured in Acura’s 2012 commercial.

The Today Show should have gotten all of their facts together. Maria Kang is an inspiration.

Oh…and Julie Gerstein: considering NBC had plastered Kang’s name everywhere, you might have had someone proofread your contribution on Tuesday – her name is MariA – not Marie.
