Fat-Shaming Playmate Loses Job And Gym Membership Over Snapchat Post

The fallout was swift

Yesterday, GOOD reported on one of the most malicious examples of online harassment imaginable and now the perpetrator is facing harsh repercussions. Dani Mathers, 2015’s Playboy Playmate of the Year, photographed a stranger showering at an LA Fitness and posted it to her Snapchat account saying, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” The photo was merged with a selfie of Mathers covering a devious smile on her face.


Immediately after the posting, Mathers was chastised across the Internet for humiliating a stranger and violating her privacy. After deleting the picture, Mathers posted an apology video on Facebook which was removed shortly after. Now, Mathers has been suspended indefinitely from her job on the popular “Heidi and Frank” radio show on L.A.’s 95.5 KLOS, and LA Fitness has banned the model for life. A spokesperson for the gym told TMZ, “Her behavior is appalling and puts every member’s privacy at risk. We have handled this internally and also notified the police.”

Today, Mathers reached out to fellow Playmates to apologize for her “thoughtless and mean-spirited” actions and the “negativity and hate it has brought forward.” It’s believed that Mathers sent the letter to avoid being stripped of her Playmate of the Year title. There’s no word yet on the identity of the woman that Mathers photographed or if she will press charges.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
