Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers: I’m Sorry, I’ll Play Nice

 

Playmate of the Year 2015 Dani Mathers, recently gushed about how wonderful life has been after becoming a playmate. “Playboy changed my life,” said Dani. “Being a Playmate is the greatest moment of my career. It’s my dream come true!” (Playboy, 2016). Having landed the cover less than two years ago Dani is already seeking a new career in real estate–but there’s just one problem, a looming conviction.

It all began when Dani took a Snapchat picture of an elderly woman in a LA Fitness gym locker room and uploaded it with the words, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either”, and she’s been in hot water ever since. Her bathroom body shaming incident can potentially wipe her new dreams clean away!

A recently coined term body shaming is “the act of discriminating against other body types” (Urban Dictionary, 2016).

If convicted Dani faces 6 months in jail and a misdemeanor offense which will bar her from becoming a realtor. Both the LAPD and the 70-year-old victim wants to make an example out of her. Dani’s lawyer is currently “trying to strike a deal with prosecutors so she doesn’t have a conviction on her record” (TMZ, 2016).

Dani’s attorney, Tom Mesereau told the prosecutors Dani is willing to do a full mea culpa, including an anti-bullying course and talking to children in school about the effects of bullying.

Hey Dani, if things don’t pan out in your favor you can always join the “Bad Girls Club” they’ll welcome you with open arms…
