Playboy model Dani Mathers has landed herself in hot waters. She took a photo of a naked woman in a gym locker and poked fun on it by posting it on her social media account with body shaming comments.


She probably thought it would be funny but instead, she got a heap of criticisms after she shared the photo on Snapchat with the caption, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”

Dani Mathers tried to do damage control by apologizing and deleting her social media accounts. She explained that it was only meant to be a private message.

“That was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do,” she said in an online video. “I know that body-shaming is wrong. That is not the type of person I am.”

However, the damage is done. not only do netizens now hate her guts, the LAPD is now investigating the matter. The agency is said to have received a report of the “illegal distribution” of the photo, as reported by Capt. Andrew Neiman, as reported by ABC 7.

Mathers’ membership on the gym LA Fitness has also been revoked. Apparently, the gym was also the one who reported the matter to the police.

“Her behavior is appalling and puts every member at risk of losing their privacy,” said Jill Greuling, the company’s executive vice president of operations.

One of the netizens who saw the post and was bothered by Dani Mathers’ behavior wrote an open letter posted on Facebook to the model, slamming her for body shaming other women, as reported by Cosmopolitan magazine.

“Here’s the deal- you may have been a Playboy model but not all of us work out to be “hot”, some of us work out simply to honor the bodies we were given. That’s all that woman was trying to do and you violated her. Shame on you. I bet I could get 100s of women to post their beautiful bodies and regardless of size, shape or color, they will ALL be more beautiful than the ugliness you showed in that post,” the letter read.

The mother also added the hashtag ‪#‎AllBodiesAreBeautiful.

29-years old Dani Mathers, was Playboy’s Miss May in 2014.
