Playboy model Dani Mathers deleted her Instagram and Twitter pages after she was caught fat-shaming a woman at L.A. Fitness on Snapchat Friday. The blonde beauty, who was the 2015 Playmate of the Year, faced a major backlash after a screenshot of her post leaked to the public.
Mathers, 29, took a picture of the woman while she was naked in the locker room. The caption read, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” She followed up that post by taking a picture of herself with her hand over her mouth.
She promptly took to Snapchat to issue an apology.
“I just wanted to acknowledge the photo I accidentally posted on Snapchat here earlier today, but I wanted you to know that was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do.
“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 and that’s not the type of person that I am.
“That photo was taken to be part of a personal conversation with a girlfriend and because I am new to Snapchat I didn’t realize I had posted it and that was a huge mistake.
“I know that I’ve upset a lot of people out there. But please, please believe me when I this is not the type of person I am. I’ve never done this before. I will never do this again. You have my word.”
But her apology didn’t do much to save her image. She was banned from all L.A. Fitness gyms. She "is not permitted back at any club, ever,” a spokesperson told TMZ Friday.
She lost her job on the Los Angeles radio show “Heidi and Frank,” which aired on KLOS-FM. She worked there for years, but the station suspended her indefinitely after the Snapchat incident.
