L-A Radio: Dani Mathers Pleads 'No Contest' Over Gym Photo

Dani Mathers
Former Playboy model and former member of the KLOS 95.5 FM Morning Show Dani Mathers pleaded no contest Wednesday to invasion of privacy after she secretly photographed a naked, 70-year-old woman in an LA Fitness shower area and posted it on social media with a disparaging remark.

After pleading to the misdemeanor charge, the 2015 Playmate of the Year was ordered to perform 30 days of graffiti removal services, according to Rob Wilcox, a spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney. She also must serve three years’ probation.

According to The LA Times, Mathers’ attorney, Dana Cole, said she has never known the victim’s identity, but she has publicly apologized to her. Mathers previously pleaded not guilty in the case.

Mathers, 30, was accused of posting an image of the woman on her Snapchat social media account on July 13 with a mocking caption about the woman’s appearance, saying, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”

The photograph and her comments sparked a widespread public outcry, and critics accused her of body-shaming the woman.

Soon after the photograph was posted, the Los Angeles Police Department received a report of “illegal distribution” of the image and launched an investigation into Mathers’ actions.

Mathers was banned from all LA Fitness locations after the incident.
