In mid-July, 2015 Playmate Of The Year Dani Mathers shared a post on her SnapChat account of a naked woman that was changing in her gym's locker room. Weeks later, the woman whom Mathers has body-shamed is seeking justice with the help of the LA police.

“If I can’t unsee this, then you can’t either,” she captioned the post. Soon after, she shared a selfie with her hand over her mouth, seemingly embarrassed for the much older woman. Mathers, 29, was correspondingly met with questions and sarcastic reactions to her post. Many questioned her motives and lauded the older woman for even going to the gym in the first place.

In response, Mathers went on her social media accounts to apologise.

The model went on SnapChat as well to make a more lengthy apology. In the video, Mathers acknowledged the photo, which she claimed was “accidentally posted.” She narrated how the photo series was meant to be part of a private conversation with a friend, but that she was still wrong to share those thoughts. “Please believe me when I say this is not the type of person I am,” she said.

Weeks after the incident, the LAPD has finally tracked down the body-shamed woman. TMZ reports that the 70-year-old wants Mathers to experience the full brunt of the law. The woman is ready to testify and cooperate with authorities to attain justice for what was done.

The case that Mathers will be charged with is still uncertain, as the LA City Attorney is still reviewing the facts of the event. However, she is likely to face a case of Dissemination of Private Images, which is punishable for six months in jail.

The publication adds that the police are looking to make an example out of the Playmate. The authorities want to spread that it is actually illegal to publicly shame someone, especially when they are trying to better themselves.
