This summer, Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers declared herself a member in good standing of the “Why Humanity Sucks” Club when she secretly snapped a picture of a naked 70-year-old woman changing in her gym’s locker room and then posted it on her Snapchat with a cunty caption.
Well, besides being an a-hole extraordinaire, she can add “pioneer” to her social media profiles (she should keep “the a-hole extraordinaire” on there)!
In what’s being considered a landmark move against “body-shaming,” the LA Times reports that her dumb ass got charged with “one misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy.”
Prosecutors often use invasion of privacy charges against peeping Toms and people who conceal cameras to take sexually suggestive photos of women. But legal experts said this marks a rare time authorities have brought charges against someone over photos making fun of someone’s weight. It comes amid growing awareness and outrage about “body-shaming” — particularly common on social media.
The DA’s office apparently took the apology Dani issued for “accidentally” (that’s one clumsy smartphone) snapping the pic and wiped their asses with it.
Her attorney is unhappy about this turn of events. He says:
“I am disappointed that Dani Mathers was charged with any violation,” he said. “She never tried to invade anyone’s privacy and never tried to violate any laws.”
Dani obviously “Mean Girl-ed” in the wrong place at the wrong time, because she’s now the poster child for “evil body-shaming blondes” and Los Angeles is using her case to demonstrate that they’re not having any of it.
Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer had this to say:
“Body-shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences,” he said. “It mocks and stigmatizes its victims, tearing down self-respect and perpetuating the harmful idea that our unique physical appearances should be compared to air-brushed notions of ‘perfect.’ What really matters is our character and humanity. While body-shaming, in itself, is not a crime, there are circumstances in which invading one’s privacy to accomplish it can be. And we shouldn’t tolerate that.”
Dani might want to practice hiding razors in her weave and rolled-up currency for the commissary in her vagina. She could face up to six months in prison and a $1000 fine for first-time offenders.
But really, good luck with that particular campaign, L.A. Do the authorities not watch the majority of reality television that is set in their city? The Real Housewives franchise is BUILT on this shit. They’ll be slapping the cuffs on so many semi-celebrities! There will be no room for the real criminals!
Oh, and someone better tell Khloe Kardashian to lay low for awhile.
