If you haven’t already read the really disgustingly disappointing story of Playboy model Dani Mathers snapchatting a naked woman’s body at the gym for the sake of body shaming, you *might* be living under a rock.
And while there haven’t been any reports of the woman coming forward, another woman, Christine Blackmon, who goes to the exact gym that Dani Mathers body shamed at, has come forward on her thoughts of this happening at a place she never thought it would.
According to Today Blackmon said, “It really upset me because I’m thirty pounds heavier than I normally am, and I’m struggling with my own body image right now because I’m coming back from knee surgery, I’m 42 and I’m trying to train for a marathon.
She shared the story of her husband taking her picture playfully when changing into her workout clothes, and though she hated it at the time, her husband said she looked beautiful and wanted to keep it. In her post she goes on to say, “Here’s the deal- you may have been a Playboy model but not all of us work out to be “hot”, some of us work out simply to honor the bodies we were given. That’s all that woman was trying to do and you violated her. Shame on you. I bet I could get 100s of women to post their beautiful bodies and regardless of size, shape or color, they will ALL be more beautiful than the ugliness you showed in that post.”
Dani Mathers, I believe you have been served.
