On Thursday, 29-year-old Playboy model and 2015 “Playmate Of The Year” Dani Mathers went viral for all the wrong reasons when she posted a Snapchat photo of a nude woman taken in the locker room of her gym with the caption, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either!” Mathers later apologized for the photo, claiming that it had been meant for a friend (because that makes it okay!) and that she had accidentally uploaded it. In a lengthy, now-deleted apology on Twitter, she wrote: “There is no excuse… I understand fully the magnitude of this post and that I have hurt.”

In addition to the public shaming she received on Twitter, Mathers is now facing serious repercussions over the photo. TMZ reports that the model has been indefinitely suspended from a gig on the “Heidi and Frank” radio show on the Los Angeles KLOS radio station, where she had been a regular personality for years. She’s also been banned from L.A. Fitness, where the incident took place, and a spokesperson for the chain says that Mathers “is not permitted back at any club, ever.”

Even worse, Mathers may face legal action. The L.A. Fitness Universal City location reached out to authorities, as the legalities of taking nude photos of gymgoers without their permission are questionable.

A spokesperson for LA Fitness tells TMZ, “Her behavior is appalling and puts every member’s privacy at risk. We have handled this internally and also notified the police.”

The gym goes on to say cell phone usage and photography are prohibited in locker rooms, adding, “This is not only our rule it is just common decency.”

It’s unclear what — if any — charges Mathers faces over the incident, but things are definitely not looking great for her right now. On the plus side, she does have one person left in her corner!

You just gotta see this as a “glass half full” type of situation.
