Playboy playmate who body-shamed 71 year-old woman in gym sentenced to remove graffiti

A Playboy model who secretly took a photo of a naked 70-year-old woman in the locker room of a California gym, before sharing it on the Snapchat social media site has pleaded guilty to invasion of privacy. Dani Mathers, who was voted 'Playmate of the Year' in 2015, was sentenced to 30 days community service — to be spent removing graffiti — and three years probation.
The 30-year-old published the image on her public Snapchat story last summer with the caption: “If I can't unsee this then you can't either”. It lead to accusations of body shaming. It is illegal in California to secretly photograph another identifiable person in a changing room without their consent.

Ms Mathers previously attempted to avoid jail time by offering to apologize to the victim, undergo counselling, and take an anti-bullying course. The judge declined, citing lack of remorse. Mathers was also banned from all LA Fitness gyms.
