Playboy model Dani Mathers will face charges over the body shaming Snapchat post she shared back in July.

The 2015 Playmate of the Year snapped a picture of a 70-year-old naked woman changing in the locker room of an L.A. gym and posted it on the social media network commenting, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.”

The L.A. City Attorney’s Office announced Friday they would be charging the 29-year-old with invasion of privacy. Mather’s faces up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

A statement was released by L.A city attorney, Mike Feuer, that read, “Body shaming is humiliating, with often painful, long-term consequences. It mocks and stigmatizes its victims, tearing down self-respect and perpetuating the harmful idea that our unique physical appearances should be compared to air brushed notions of ‘perfect.’ What really matters is our character and humanity. While body shaming in itself is not a crime, there are circumstances in which invading one’s privacy to accomplish it can be. And we shouldn’t tolerate that.”

Dani Mathers deleted the Snapchat post almost immediately after posting it back in July and issued an apology at the time saying she was new to Snapchat. She revealed she had meant to send the picture in a private message to a friend and instead made the post public.

Mathers was fired from her radio station job and banned from all L.A. Fitness gyms when her post came under public scrutiny.
