- Playboy model Dani Mathers is under fire for body-shaming an unsuspecting woman at the LA Fitness gym
- Mathers deleted the image and issued a public apology video via Snapchat
- LA Fitness permanently revoked the model’s membership for disseminating private images
29-year-old Playboy model Dani Mathers sparked fury on social media after fat-shaming a naked woman at the gym through a photo she posted on her Snapchat account.
On her Snapchat Story, the Los Angeles-based model shared a photo of an unsuspecting naked woman in LA Fitness gym locker room with the caption: “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”
The model was under fire all over social media; with many accusing her of bullying and invading the woman’s privacy.
Mathers, as soon as she was faced with a major backlash, deleted the image and apologized for her misdemeanor, as per an article published by Daily Mail.
“That was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do. That photo was taken to be part of a personal conversation with a girl friend and because I’m new to Snapchat, I really didn’t realize that I had posted it. It was a huge mistake,” Mathers said in a public apology video she posted through Snapchat.
She added: “I know I have upset a lot of people out there but please believe me this is not the type of person that I am. I have never done this before and I will never do this again, you have my word.”
However, Mathers may be facing more than just a slap on the wrist for her wrongdoing as LA Fitness has decided to file a police report against the model for “disseminating private images” and has been banned from the gym, as per an article published by Stuff.
LA Fitness said in a statement: “Her behavior is appalling and puts every member at risk of losing their privacy. Her membership has been permanently revoked, at all our health clubs, and law enforcement has been notified.”
