A PLAYBOY MODEL who secretly took a picture of a naked 70-year-old woman at a gym and posted it on social media with a snide remark has been placed on three years’ probation.

Dani Mathers, the magazine’s 2015 Playmate of the Year, was also ordered to perform 30 hours of community work as part of a plea deal.

The 30-year-old drew a storm of criticism after she posted the picture on Snapchat in July of last year.

The photo showed the naked woman from behind at a Los Angeles area fitness centre with a mocking caption that read: “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”

Mathers was banned from LA Fitness gyms following the incident, which prompted a public outcry and raised questions about body shaming, especially on social media.

She apologised for her action after posting the picture, saying in a tweet:

I’m sorry for what I did. I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing.

She said she had meant to send the image in a private message but shared it publicly instead.
