Model has been criminally charged for fat-shaming a naked woman on Snapchat

Back in September Playboy model Dani Mathers was faced with the reality of jail time over her disgusting attempt to be funny on Snapchat.

Standing in a gym change-room, she took a photo of an unsuspecting woman completely naked, captioning it: "If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either."

Now, according to the New York Daily News, she has been charged with one count of invasion of privacy.

"Body shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences,” Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer wrote in a statement.

“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."

If convicted, she will face up to six months in prison, and a $1,000 fine.

"I’m disappointed that she was charged with any type of violation,” Mathers’ lawyer told TMZ. “She never intentionally violated anyone’s privacy and never tried to break the law at any time."
