PLAYBOY model DANI MATHERS, who has regularly appeared on the CUMULUS MEDIA Classic Rock KLOS/LOS ANGELES' HEIDI & FRANK morning show, has been relieved of her duties after posting a picture of a naked woman taking a shower in her gym on SNAPCHAT and then body-shaming her, BBC reports.
The photo showed her laughing at an unsuspecting woman in the showers with the caption: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either." It wasn't long before the posting elicited a torrent of criticism, prompting her to delete the image and apologize on TWITTER. "There is no excuse," she said. "I understand fully the magnitude of this post that I have hurt a lot of people, women. Body shaming is not okay ... and not something to joke about."
She ended her apology by saying "I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing."
MATHERS had appeared regularly on the morning show in segments such as Put Your Man Where Your Mouth Is and Under the Covers; she also did appearances for KLOS -- all as an independent contractor. “We are aware of the issues surrounding Ms. MATHERS’ recent SNAPCHAT, and do not condone such actions or messages," a CUMULUS statement read. "Ms. MATHERS served as an independent contractor for KLOS, and all of her scheduled on-air segments and appearances have been canceled.”
