A Sacramento mom who created a body image uproar with an online photo of herself is at it again.

You may remember Maria Kang and this photo of her with the caption: "what's your excuse?"

Critics say it was body shaming. This time, Facebook suspended her account for a response she posted to an article showing plus-sized women in lingerie.

Here's what she wrote: "We need to change the strange mentality we are breeding in the U.S. And while I think it's important to love and accept your body I was a little peeved because I feel like we're normalizing obesity in our society."

Facebook says someone reported the post. The site removed it, calling it hate speech, but now Facebook says it was a mistake. When they discovered the error, Facebook restored Kang's account, but not the post.
