Dani Mathers has been charged with a misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy after the Playboy Playmate allegedly posted a photo of a 70-year-old naked woman in her gym locker room without the woman's knowledge, ET can confirm.
If convicted, the 29-year-old model could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Her arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 28.
"Body shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences," Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said in a statement on Friday. "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," Feuer continued. "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."
Mathers' lawyer, Tom Mesereau, told ET on Friday that he was "disappointed" with the charge. "I am very disappointed that Dani Mathers was charged with any violation," Mesereau said in a statement. "She never tried to invade anyone's privacy and never tried to break any law."
Mathers caused outrage in July, when she allegedly posted the naked woman's photo on her Snapchat account while the woman was in the shower area of an L.A. Fitness in Los Angeles. "If I can't unsee this then you can't either," the caption read. She then allegedly followed it up with a selfie covering her mouth in mock shock.
The LAPD confirmed to ET that they had launched an official investigation following the incident, after L.A. Fitness filed a police report. "The investigation is based on disseminating private images," a law enforcement source told ET.
L.A. Fitness also banned Mathers for life.
"Our written rules are very clear: Cell phone usage and photography are prohibited in the locker rooms," a spokesperson for the gym told ET. "This is not only our rule, but common decency. Her behavior is appalling and puts every member at risk of losing their privacy. Her membership has been permanently revoked, at all our health clubs, and law enforcement has been notified."
Mathers has since apologized for the incident. "Should never make light of another woman's naked body," she tweeted. "I'm sorry for what I did… I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing."
The 2015 Playboy Playmate of the Year also tweeted in September, "I have taken full responsibility for the mistakes I have made & will continue to love myself & others...I wish this for the rest of you too."
