If you haven’t been keeping up with recent events on social media because you don’t have a smartphone, listen up.

Dani Mathers, Playboy’s 2015 ‘Playmate of the Year’, has recently been hounded by commenters and online-celebrities for posting a female gym-goer’s body on her Snapchat, and body shame her in a text that says ‘If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.’ Hmm, no wonder why she’s getting a lot of shit right now.

Aside from the backlash that the playmate has received from the general public via Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, she’s currently being investigated by the LAPD for the ‘illegal distribution’ of the image that was taken in the locker room of the international gym chain, L.A. Fitness. In California, the state can charge Mathers with disorderly conduct that could include a fine of up to $1,000 or six months in jail.

On the financial side, that’s nothing in comparison to the $27 million compensation that Erin Andrews received for her lawsuit against the Nashville hotel and her stalker. However, both the Mathers and Andrews case clarifies to the public that creating visual content of a person without their consent is wrong and illegal.

Why Dani Mathers posted the picture in the first place

God only knows why she posted the picture. She probably thought that she can get away with it because she’s famous.

Maybe she thought it was funny to take that photo or that she really believed that the woman in the locker room was ugly, I don’t know.

But what Mathers failed to realise was that there are people that would call her out.

Even though I have a rocky relationship with Twitter, I do have to agree with all of the comments that people have tweeted about the Playmate’s actions. Most of the tweets were shaming Mathers and calling her a ‘complete bitch’, or a ‘horrible nasty bitch of a person’.

Personally, I think Mathers still sees herself as a 14-year-old schoolgirl that’s part of a preppy girls clique that if you’re not like them, you are a nobody, which gave her the false reason to take a picture of the gym member and slander her on the net.

Guys, being famous does not grant you a ‘get-out-of-jail’ card, which is probably what the Playmate has realised now.

Possible jail sentence for the playmate

I don’t think that Mathers’ apology will bail her out of the shit that she has created.

After realising that the Playmate illegally took a photo of the woman in question, L.A. Fitness contacted the LAPD department about the incident and banned Mathers from all of its 800-plus gyms. If a legal action against Mathers will happen in the future, not only would she be facing a fine, but also a big dent in her reputation.

The LAPD’s west division sexual assault section are now investigating the case and are trying to identify the woman in the picture so that the case can be moved forward.

Sorry isn’t good enough

Possibly out of guilt or cowardice, Mathers deleted all of her social media accounts, including Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, after posting her apology to all of her fans.

When I watched her apology video, I think she should have chosen her words carefully, because no one just ‘accidentally’ posts a picture or a video to their Snapchats…She also went on to talk about how she’s ‘not the type of person’ to body-shame other women, and that the image was supposed to be a personal story that she wanted to send to a friend.

Whether the post was meant to be a personal one or a public one, it still didn’t give Mathers the right to take the picture of the gym member. If we were to sympathise with Mathers, in the least possible way that we could, she just had a moment where she was being a complete idiot and really didn’t know how Snapchat works.

However, ghosting her followers by deleting all of her social media accounts do show that she’s more than happen to spit out criticism of other, but can’t handle the amount of criticism about her.

What do you guys think? Don’t forget to leave your comments in the section below, on the community forum, or even on my Twitter page.

Do you think Mathers’ apology is good enough? Should the woman in question come forward and file a lawsuit against her? Do you think that her post to Snapchat was an accident, or something more sinister, to tell people that society won’t like you if you’re a different size?
