Charges Filed Against 'Playboy' Model Who Body-Shamed Woman At Gym
Months after she was roundly criticized for mocking a 70-year-old woman by posting a nude image to social media, model Dani Mathers, Playboy's 2015 Playmate of the Year, is now facing criminal charges that could result in up to six months in jail.

Mathers, 29, posted the image to Snapchat back in July, captioning her secretly taken photo of a woman in the shower area of an LA Fitness health club with the message, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

On the same day she posted the image, Mathers apologized, saying she had meant to send the image in a private conversation on Snapchat rather than to a broad audience.

"That was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do. I know that body-shaming is wrong," she said, as member station KPCC reported. "That is not the type of person I am."

Mathers now faces a criminal invasion-of-privacy charge. Announcing his decision to move ahead with the case Friday, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said:

"Body shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences. It mocks and stigmatizes its victims, tearing down self-respect and perpetuating the harmful idea that our unique physical appearances should be compared to air-brushed notions of 'perfect.' What really matters is our character and humanity. While body-shaming, in itself, is not a crime, there are circumstances in which invading one's privacy to accomplish it can be. And we shouldn't tolerate that."

said via Twitter, "It's not just our rule, it's common decency."

OK...

I'm not known to be overcome with sympathy...

But "body shaming"?

Are you fucking kidding me?

If you don't know at 70 that you're no longer the cougar you were at 40 you're brain dead.

Why are people so fucking sensitive?

Nearly everyone has a smartphone these days. If someone snapped you in the bathroom, locker room or somewhere else where there was an expectation of privacy, would you think that fair game? A criminal act? What would you do?

FYI, paying someone $500 to break the picture taker's kneecaps is a criminal act and you'll end up doing more time than they will.

Anyone besides me think that every compromising or embarrassing picture of Dani will forever be fair game on Twitter?

Those plastic titties and trim waist won't last forever. ;)

On that basis you're absolutely right.

In a public shower YOU SHOULD HAVE an expectation that no one is going to take a picture of you naked and post it.

The concept of people being "fat shamed" is what I find ridiculous.

Semantics. This is about common decency.

Body shaming is an understatement. Dani took a picture of someone nude without their permission and then posted it on the Internet.

If this was a man he would have been charged, tried and jailed months ago.

Yes and no. If a man posted it on social media, yes.

But most revenge porn/voyeurism is posted on obscure sites and anonymously, so I would bet the vast majority get away with it.

It's all illegal and courts are going after "revenge porn". There's also the prospect of civil suits.

Agreed. Heck, even if it was a woman who wasn't a Playboy model with plastic tits, I think action would have been taken sooner.

Go look in pretty much any gym they have signs that say photographing or videotaping other gym members is prohibited.
Which is why Dani is banned from LA Fitness. I'm guessing no other gym will want her as a liability either.
