Dani Mathers: CONVICTED in Body-Shaming Case!
You may not remember the name Dani Mathers, but you probably remember the vile conduct that made her a target on social media last year.
In case you forgot, or you just want to be disgusted all over again, here’s what happened:
Mathers took a photo of a nude elderly woman who was changing in a gym locker room and posted it on Snapchat.
To make matters worse, Matters – who was the 2015 Playboy Playmate of the Year – captioned the photo:
“If I can’t unsee this, neither can you.”
The backlash was immediate, and Mathers promptly posted a lengthy apology on Twitter:
“I want to acknowledge my post from snapchat earlier. There is no excuse…I understand fully the magnitude of this post,” Mathers tweeted.
“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.”
Unfortunately for her, the damage had been done, both in terms of the violation of the woman’s privacy and legal ramifications for Mathers.
Back in September of 2016, the LAPD located the woman the woman and the photo and decided to press charges against Mathers.
Today, the 30-year-old was convicted in Los Angeles County Court, and while many on social media are already clamoring for a harsher sentence, we’re guessing the victim feels vindicated and Mathers has learned her lesson.
In exchange for a lighter sentence, Mathers pled guilty and was offered two options with regard to her punishment:
She could serve 45 days in jail and receive 36 months probation.
Or she could do 30 days of graffiti removal … and also receive 36 months probation.
Not surprisingly, she chose the latter option.
So legally, she got off easy.
But in other ways, Mathers will pay for her crimes for the remainder of her life.
Prior to one of the most egregious social media blunders of all time, Mathers seemed to be successfully transitioning from her role as a Playboy model into the world of mainstream media.
We’re guessing she won’t be seeing any more hosting gigs coming her way for a very long time.
