I am so saddened by this entire situation. Body Shaming is a terrible thing to do and snapping pictures of a naked lady in a locker room is absolutely disgusting!
The fact that the 2015 Playboy Playmate of the Year, Dani Mathers, cannot even muster an apology for the first offense – the picture snapping – is absolutely horrid.
I tend to be a pretty forgiving person and really rather zen but this one really gets me. Let’s start with the fact that a woman at LA Fitness had finished her exercise session and decided to take a shower. The next logical conclusion would be that she expected a certain amount of privacy which definitely did NOT include someone snapping naked photos of her and posting this gem on Snapchat:
“If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” which was overlayed on top of the picture of the fully naked woman, which I refuse to share, and a selfie of Dani covering her mouth in shock (seen above).
To make matters worse (Can you make matters worse?) she never once apologizes for taking the photo, invading this woman’s privacy or body shaming the woman.
I do not find this acceptable as a proper apology. How about starting with:
“I am sorry for being so thoughtless. I am sorry that I took those photos. That was very wrong of me. I am sorry that I posted them and disrespected you and your privacy like that. I am sorry for body shaming you.”
The woman in the locker room did not get any of that. Instead Dani is skulking off and hiding out having temporarily shut down her Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
Police are launching an investigation, Dani’s LA Fitness gym membership has been revoked and we go off to the gym (I am a LA Fitness member) with this horrific behavior etched in our minds.
How do you feel about what Dani did? Will it change how you handle yourself in the locker room of your local gym?
