Dani Mathers pleads no contest in invasion of privacy caseFormer Playmate Dani Mathers had been sentenced for body shaming an older gym goer at an LA Fitness last year. She either can serve 45 days in jail or 30 days of community service removing graffiti after body-shaming a 71-year-old woman at an LA Fitness gym last July. On top of that, Mathers was  ordered to pay the woman $60 in restitution in order to replace a backpack seen in the photo in order to help protect the women’s identity.

Mathers went to court on Wednesday to agree to a plea in her criminal invasion of privacy case. When presented with the two options of either serving jail time or community service, she chose the community service.

The victim decided to not be in court on Wednesday for the court hearing. The prosecutors said the victim was humiliated by the cruel act. “Body shaming can devastate its subject,” Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said. “People are mocked, they’re humiliated and in ways they can never fully get back.”

Mathers’ attorney addressed the media after the hearing saying that his client is happy to put this behind her. He said, “She really apologizes from the bottom of her heart for what happened. She never thought this would come out like this. Never intended to hurt anyone.”

The 2015 Playmate of the Year was highly criticized for body-shaming the woman after secretly taking a photo of her naked in a locker room at an LA Fitness. Mathers then posted the photo to her Snapchat. She captioned the picture, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either”. Mathers claimed that she only meant to send the Snapchat pic to a friend but instead she accidentally sent it to all of her followers. The media caught wind of her Snapchat snafu and soon Mathers lost jobs and says she got severely bullied online.



Dani Mathers Pleads Not Guilty to Invasion of Privacy

Dani Mathers pleads not guiltyHuman garbage in the form of Playboy model Dani Mathers, who has admitted to taking a photo of a naked, 70-year-old woman in a gym locker room and posting it on Snapchat, pleaded not guilty Monday to invasion of privacy. Mathers was not in court when hew attorney entered the plea on her behalf. Once her attorney entered her plea, he made a comment on his clients behalf. Defense attorney Tom Mesereau said, “She apologized for her behavior and we’re looking forward to resolving this case in a very fair manner.”

For those of you who aren’t aware of this case, Mathers sparked widespread outrage after she shared a naked photo of an elderly fellow gym goer on Snapchat in July with the offensive caption: ‘If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.’ She later apologized for body-shaming the elderly gym member and deleted her social media accounts after her snapchat went viral. The public was outraged by the post and the gym, LA Fitness, when they got wind of the offensive snapchat reported the posting to police and revoked Mathers’ membership. Detectives began investigating after the LAPD received a report of ‘illegal distribution’ of the image, police Capt. Andrew Neiman said after the photo went viral.

After the photo went viral, Mathers tried to do an apology tour. The model first apologized for the Snapchat post in July, tweeting, “I’m sorry for what I did… I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing.” Mathers later claimed in an online video that she accidentally posted the photo publicly (which is complete BS in our opinion). She claimed in a clip posted to her Snapchat Story, “I just want to acknowledge a photo that I accidentally posted. It was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do.”

If convicted, Mathers could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. A pretrial hearing was set for December 21. And we truly hope that this women gets some jail time for what she did.
