A glamorous Playboy model has come under fire on social media after fat shaming a naked woman in the gym by posting a photo of her on Snapchat.
Dani Mathers, 29, from Los Angeles, shared the image of the unsuspecting woman on her Story along with a photo of her face with her hand over her mouth with the caption: ‘If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either!’
However, Dani, who was crowned Playmate Of The Year 2015, quickly deleted the image and apologised for her actions after sparking a huge backlash.
Slamming her actions on Twitter, Hollie Taylor wrote: ‘@DaniMathers it’s people like you that make others feel uneasy about changing openly in locker rooms. appalling.’
While Priscilla Sanchez added: ‘@DaniMathers that poor woman’s naked body is now circulating the internet when she never intended it to. It’s really heartbreaking.’
The Random Man tweeted: ‘You owe that girl an apology!’
Bonnie Reynolds wrote: ‘Stop. You aren’t sorry you did it, you’re sorry you got caught and are getting blasted.’
Holly Taylor added: ‘im grossed out you would post a photo of a naked woman’s body in a locker room saying “you can’t unsee this” wow.’
Police Sausager said: ‘This woman was at a m***********g GYM, the hell you looking at her body like it’s deplorable?’
Dani, who has 553,000 followers on Instagram, more than one million on Facebook and 75,100 on Twitter, was believed to have posted the picture after a workout session in LA Fitness Universal City.
She shared the following message in a video on 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.
‘I chose to do what I do for a living because I love the female body and I know body shaming is wrong, that’s not what I’m about and this is not the type of person I am.
‘The photo was taken as part of a personal conversation with a girlfriend and because I am new to Snapchat I didn’t realize I had posted it, and that was a huge mistake.
‘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.’
She also posted a Facebook message of apology – which has now been deleted – including a plea for forgiveness.
‘Women make my world go round, I have nothing short of respect for women, I surround myself with women and work hard at empowering our community… and I completely understand how terrible this was and is.
‘Please please know how upset I am with myself for this and take my word that it won’t happen again.
‘I love and appreciate every one of you and know that everyone is beautiful in their own way, that’s what makes us all so special.
‘I can’t undo this mistake, although I would give anything to, but I ask your forgiveness.
‘This has truly made me realize that some of the things that we do or say can seem silly in the moment or in (in this case,what was meant to be) a private conversation, aren’t necessary.
‘All I’ve done here is spread negativity and hatred when that isn’t who I am or what I’ve ever been about.’
