This Celebrity Could Face Jail Time Due To Inappropriate Pictures She Posted

Playboy model Dani Mathers received waves of negative backlash after she posted a nude photo of a woman at the gym to her Snapchat account for everyone to see.

The picture was captioned "If I can't unsee this then you can't either", followed by a picture of Mathers laughing.

Her body-shaming sparked outrage from people everywhere. Not only was this just plain rude, but it also violated this woman's privacy. Gyms have strict no-photo clauses, presumably for this exact reason.

Mathers quickly deleted the pictures from Snapchat, but the damage was done. She released an apology video, saying:

"I just wanted to acknowledge a photo that I accidentally posted on Snapchat earlier today and let you guys know that that was absolutely wrong, and not what I meant to do," she explained. "I have chosen to do what I do for a living because I love the female body and I know that body-shaming is wrong and that's not what I'm about, that's not the type of person that I am. That photo was taken to be a personal conversation with a girlfriend, and because I am new to Snapchat, I didn't realize that I had posted it and that was a huge mistake."

The apology is nice, but the Los Angeles Attorney's Office doesn't think it's enough. According to TMZ, the woman in the photo has been located and is willing to testify against Mathers in court. The model could be charged with dissipation of private images, which is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail.

Mathers' lawyer says his client never tried to hurt anyone and never tried to break the law. But that doesn't seem entirely true. Claiming you "can't unsee" someone while they're naked at the gym doesn't exactly sound like uplifting stuff.
