Dani Mathers Officially Charged with Invasion of Privacy
Dani Mathers is known for being a Playboy Playmate — Playmate of the Year for 2015, in fact — but these days, her main claim to fame is just being a terrible person.
Back in July, Dani made a series of bad decisions after taking a photo of a woman taking a shower in the locker room of her gym.
She body-shamed the woman so seriously that it was an actual crime.
After the photo went viral, she claimed that she’d meant to send the photo directly to a friend but shared it to all her followers instead, like that makes it OK.
She also wrote an apology on Twitter, acknowledging that “There is no excuse” and that “I understand fully the magnitude of this post and that I have hurt.”
“This mistake has truly made me realize that something that can seem silly in a private conversation isn’t unnecessary,” she wrote.
“All I’ve done here is spread negativity and hate when that isn’t who I am, I chose to model because I appreciate women and their bodies, so me of all people should never make light of another woman’s naked body.”
Sounds like Dani here went to the Farrah Abraham School of Communication, huh?
She didn’t “make light” of the woman in the photo, she took a naked photo of her without her consent, shared it with countless people, and cruelly mocked her appearance on top of it all.
She might be a literal monster.
Even after the apology, Dani was suspended from her radio show gig, and she was banned for life from her gym.
And now things are getting even better, because she’s officially been charged with invasion of privacy.
Justice is real y’all.
It took a while, but the LAPD was able to locate the woman in the photo — a woman in her 70s — and she agreed to cooperate with authorities.
As of now, we don’t have any details about the court case, but we do know that if Dani is convicted on this charge, she’ll face six months in jail.
Yeah, it seems like kind of short sentence, considering that if she is convicted, there’s a good chance she won’t even serve a fraction of those six months.
But this is 2016: we can’t lock her up in the stocks in the town square and throw rotten produce at her, as satisfying as that may be.
We’ll just have to hope that all this, the charges, the backlash, and maybe a few minutes in jail will teach her a lesson about how to behave like a decent human being.
