Yesterday I posted a blippo about The Today Show bashing on Maria Kang.

Today on…um…Today, the Instagram picture of Kim Kardashian’s butt was profiled. For some unbelievable reason the producers today decided that…um…Today would have to censor her butt during the segment.

Really.

Bit ol’ round blurry bubble (when you read “round”, imagine how Jim Carry would exemplify Today’s bubble…um…today).

KK’s butt spreads across engulfs the entire screen (iPhone, iPad, laptop, flat-screen that takes up four feet of space). The Today Show all but gave her a golden globe (get it?? globe??) alongside their praise for Kim Kardashian’s selfie in suit that showed half a boob and most of her butt.

All KK’s bragging must have sent Hoda into rehab.

Shame on you Today…um…today…for the global crap-slap about a mom who’s all about a healthy lifestyle whilst a shower of NBC rain-bowed peacock feathers was poured out for the roundest, most spoiled snot of them all.

Today, you suck…um…today.

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.
