Connecticut Woman Responds to Playboy Model's ‘Body-Shaming' Post

A Connecticut woman’s social media response to a Playboy playmate 's photo of a naked woman in a gym locker on her Snapchat has gotten popular. 

Last week, Dani Mathers, posted a selfie in a gym locker with a naked woman in the background.

The former Playboy Playmate of the Year can be seen in the photo with one hand over her mouth as if to stifle a laugh accompanied by a caption that reads, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either." 

Nicole Henry, of Hebron, said she couldn’t ‘unsee’ Mathers' post.

“I was upset," Henry said. "I was mad. I was like, 'why would you do that to another human being?'"

After seeing the post, the kindergarten teacher was compelled to post a photo of herself in a bikini. 

"My body has rolls," the Facebook caption reads, in part. "This body may be fat, but it’s volunteered at the local children’s hospital and worked at many day care centers taking care of kids of all ages."

Henry's message for the post, that's been shared hundreds of times, is for people to love themselves, no matter what shape or size. 

"I want people to understand that they should love themselves and it’s okay to like yourself," Henry said. 

Mathers has since posted an apology video on her Snapchat and appears to have deleted all of her social media accounts.

Los Angeles Police said they were investigating the Playboy model for allegedly "illegally distributing" the photo.
