Former Playboy playmate Kendra Wilkinson sounded off on the recent controversy surrounding Dani Mathers, Playboy’s 2015 Playmate of the Year, after the blonde posted a Snapchat featuring a photo she took of an unsuspecting nude woman at the gym.
Unfortunately for Mathers — the stunt backfired, causing many people to be outraged by her completely insensitive (and also illegal) post.
Mothers quickly took to Snapchat to issue a half-hearted apology in which she said, “That was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do … I know that body shaming is wrong. That is not the type of person I am.” Actually that is EXACTLY the type of person you are.
We definitely weren’t swayed by the apology and it doesn’t sound like many others were either, including Kendra Wilkinson, whom we caught at LAX on Monday.
When we asked Wilkinson about what she thought about Mathers’ 44-second apology and how it would affect the Playmates, she said, “One person is making everyone else look bad. She stands alone. No one else does stuff like that.”
Wilkinson also added, “She has to do the full apology and the punishment she deserves.”
As far as we’re concerned — basically saying, “Oh I didn’t mean to … I really am a good person,” is a brett terrible way to apologize. What about that poor woman who was just trying to work out! Have you apologized to her?!
While the 29-year-old may have felt on top of the world last year, the world has just come crashing down on her. LA Fitness, the gym where she took the photo, has revoked Mathers’ membership, according to The Los Angeles Times. The gym posted this confirmation, saying she was banned from all clubs.
Her behavior is appalling puts members @ risk. We ended membership she can’t use any club. It’s not just our rule, it’s common decency.

The newspaper also reported that the Los Angeles Police are currently trying to find the woman she took the photo of so that they can investigate a report from LA Fitness that the image was being illegally distributed, which is a misdemeanor.
What the blonde did was a violation of the California Penal Code, which states that it is a misdemeanor to look and take photos “with the intent to invade the privacy of a person” in places like changing or locker rooms, which have “a reasonable expectation of privacy.” Under this law, it’s also illegal to distribute an image of the “intimate body part or parts” of another person “without the consent of or knowledge of that other person.”
That means that Mathers could be charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor that can include a fine of up to $1,000 or six months in jail.
Mathers has since deleted all her social media accounts — and if she wanted people to know her name, she definitely got that.
