Dani Mathers, Playboy Model Who Body-Shamed Gym Patron: 'I Chose Wrong'

Playboy’s 2015 Playmate of the Year Dani Mathers, who secretly photographed a 70-year-old woman at her gym and posted it publicly to Snapchat with the caption “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either” last July, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor invasion-of-privacy charges in May.

In a new interview with Good Morning America, Mathers admits that the experience taught her a lot about privacy, specifically regarding her own privacy it seems. “I’ve lost a lot of that myself as well. We’ve had a lot of paparazzi involved in my family life,” she said. “I had my privacy taken away after I took someone else’s.”


Mathers said she meant to send the photo to a friend and had no intentions of “breaking the law” by posting it publicly. “I know the difference between right and wrong and I chose wrong,” she said.

Instead of 45 days in jail, Mathers was sentenced to only 30 days of community service, during which she will clean up graffiti.
