The Playboy model sentenced for sending a Snapchat of a naked woman at the gym said she ‘really wants her forgiveness’

Dani MathersThe INSIDER Summary:

  • A former Playboy model was recently sentenced to 30 days of community service and three years’ probation for invasion of privacy.
  • Dani Mathers sent a Snapchat of a nude 70-year-old woman in her gym locker room with a body-shaming caption: “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”
  • In her first interview since her sentencing, Mathers told ABC News she “never meant to hurt” the woman.
  • “I haven’t been able to actually meet the woman involved, although I’ve wanted to,” she said. “I don’t expect her to forget. I don’t expect her to like me. I just, I really want her forgiveness.”

Former Playboy model Dani Mathers has been criticized ever since she shared a Snapchat of a nude 70-year-old woman in the changing room of her LA Fitness gym in July, 2016. The model added the body-shaming Snapchat — with the caption, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either” — to her public story; she claimed she intended to send it to a friend.

In addition to being banned from all LA Fitness gyms, the 30-year-old pleaded no contest to invasion of privacy charges, and was sentenced in May to 30 days of community service removing graffiti and three years’ probation.

In her first interview since her sentencing, Mathers told ABC News that she hasn’t met the woman she insulted to apologize in person.

“I haven’t been able to actually meet the woman involved, although I’ve wanted to,” she said. “There’s just been a lot of unresolved issues.”

Mathers added that she “never meant to hurt” the woman she photographed.  

“I never ever intended on showing the world this photo,” she told ABC News. “I hope that she could forgive me. I don’t expect her to forget. I don’t expect her to like me. I just, I really want her forgiveness.”

While it seems unlikely that she will get her forgiveness anytime soon, 2015’s Playmate of the Year has apparently learned from her mistake. 

“It’s taught me a lot about privacy,” she said in the same interview. “I’ve lost a lot of that myself as well. We’ve had a lot of paparazzi involved in my family life. I had my privacy taken away after I took someone elses.”

It sounds like she won’t forget her actions, either. “This is something that I’m never going to forget happened,” she said. “I’m going to continue learning and growing from [it].”

It’s certainly a change in tone from Mathers, who tweeted less than a month ago that she “never body shamed anyone.”
