Dani Mathers Body Shaming Post Leads To Change.org Petition For Her Arrest
Dani Mathers, the 2015 Playboy Playmate of the year, recently posted a photo of an unsuspecting nude woman in a L.A. Fitness gym on Snapchat — a Change.org petition uploaded on Thursday is asking that Mathers face privacy violation charges.
Change.org Petition Wants Dani Mathers Arrested For Privacy Violation
Mathers was reportedly suspended from her radio show job on the Heidi and Frank show on KLOS 95.5 and banned from all L.A. Fitness facilities after her post.
Mathers also uploaded a photo of herself laughing at the nude woman along with the caption, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either,” which social media criticized as body-shaming.
Heidi Hamilton of the Heidi and Frank show said that she found Mathers’ actions out of character.
“She’s a nice girl,” Hamilton told TMZ. “It was very disappointing.”
Mathers later tried to apologize for her posts, and has since deleted her social media accounts.
“There is no excuse,” Mathers wrote in a Twitter post. “I understand fully the magnitude of this post that I have hurt a lot of people.”
The Change.org petition is addressed to the Los Angeles Police Department and requests that Mathers be arrested for privacy violation.
“While Ms. Mathers has since apologized for her offense she needs to be brought to court with criminal charges as she has committed a criminal act,” the petition declares. “Her act affects the community in that people do not feel safe changing or showering in what should be a safe and private environment.”
However, the LAPD has already launched a criminal investigation into Mathers’ case after the L.A. Fitness where she took the photo alerted authorities, according to officials.
The other radio show host, Frank Kramer, said he felt bad for Mathers and called her action a “major faux pas.”
“The whole situation is awful,” Kramer said. “But if somebody broke the law…it is what it is.”
