Was 'Fit Mom' fat shaming over plus-sized modeling?

It's rare to find a woman who feels completely confident in lingerie, and Chrystal Bougon, owner of Curvy Girl lingerie is trying to change that. She encouraged social media followers to submit photos of their real, un-photoshopped bodies in their skivvies.

Bougon said it was a project to promote positive body image. But that didn't sit well with Maria Kang. Kang is known as the 'Fit Mom' who posted a controversial photo of her athletic body and her three kids with the words "What's your excuse?"

Kang took to Facebook to express her disagreement with the "Curvy Girl" mission and now many social media users are calling her a bully and a fat-shamer.

New Day Weekend brought both Bougon and Kang together to discuss this social media storm– but this time, there was no hiding behind keyboards.
