Dani Mathers’ Body-Shaming Case Is a ‘Witch Hunt,’ Playboy Playmate’s Former Radio Colleague Says

Model is accused of photographing an elderly woman in the shower area of her gym and posting it on Snapchat with a mocking caption

Don’t worry, Dani Mathers; Frank Kramer has your back.

Kramer, co-host of Los Angeles radio station KLOS’ “Frosty, Heidi and Frank” morning show, stuck up up for Mathers, who is facing trial for allegedly photographing an elderly woman in the shower area of her gym and posting it with a mocking caption on Snapchat, on Tuesday’s show.

The morning radio host — whose station parted ways with Mathers after the photograph became public — opined that Mathers is the victim of a “witch hunt.”

Kramer also went on to suggest that the case only went to court because of her high-profile status as a Playboy Playmate, and asserted that he wasn’t able to discern features of the woman captured in the photo in an apparent effort to downplay the situation.

Prior to being shown the door at KLOS, Mathers appeared on the station’s morning show in segments including “Put Your Man Where Your Mouth Is,” which featured Mathers going out into the field to see if men could be tempted into infidelity by her.

Mathers is accused of secretly photographing a 71-year-old nude woman in the shower area of her L.A. Fitness gym and then posting it with the mocking caption, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either” via Snapchat.

Since allegedly posting the photo in July, Mathers has been banned from L.A. Fitness gyms and  fired from her gig at Los Angeles radio station KLOS, where she appeared as a regular on the station’s morning show.

In November, Mathers was charged with one count of invasion of privacy, which carries a sentence of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

In February, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office scoffed at Mathers’ request to have her sentence deferred, stating that Mathers “does not qualify nor merit such leniency.”

The city attorney cited Mathers’ perceived lack of remorse in its argument.

“Defendant petitions the court for diversion … however, she does not qualify nor merit such leniency. Her post-crime behavior is indicative of the fact that Defendant has never shown remorse for her behavior and therefore she should face the consequences of her cruel and criminal act,” the city attorney contended.

Earlier this month, a judge denied both Mathers’ motion to dismiss the charges and her motion to continue, a representative for the Los Angeles City Attorney told TheWrap on Monday.

Mathers had contended that the law she was charged with violating is too ambiguous to pass constitutional muster, the New York Daily News reported.

According to the city attorney’s office, the next court date in the case is set for May 24.
