LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles prosecutors have charged a Playboy model who took a photo of a naked woman in a gym locker room and posted it to social media with insulting comments about the woman’s body.

The city attorney’s office said Friday that Dani Mathers faces a misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy. She is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 28. It wasn’t immediately known if Mathers has an attorney.

The 29-year-old faced widespread criticism after she shared the photo on Snapchat in July with the caption: “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” She later apologized and deleted her social media accounts.

The gym reported the posting to police and revoked Mathers’ membership.

City News Service says Mathers could face up to six months in jail and a fine.
