Things have gone from bad to worse for ex-Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers. In July, Mathers posted to social media a nude photo of a woman in the locker room with the condescending  caption “If you can’t un-see this, I can’t either.” Unfortunately for Mathers, the authorities couldn’t unsee the picture either, and she has now been charged with invasion of privacy.

If convicted, Mathers faces up to six month of jail time and a $1,000 fine. She is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 28.

Mathers was roundly criticized for the body-shaming photo, and Playboy severed its relationship with Mathers as a result. It was a precipitous fall from grace for Mathis, who won the prestigious Miss Coed years ago and was named the 2015 Playmate of the Year.

She said that she made the photo public accidentally. “That was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do,” she said in an online video in July. “I know that body-shaming is wrong. That is not the type of person I am.”

And this is why you don’t take photos of strangers in the gym locker room, ladies and gentlemen.
