Playboy model Dani Mathers has said sorry after making fun of a naked woman at her gym.

She posted the photo on Snapchat, which showed her laughing at an unsuspecting woman in the showers.

The caption said: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

But she was then hit with a wave of criticism, with people accusing her of body shaming. She's now apologised and deleted the image.

Unsurprisingly, people weren't that impressed, especially from a woman who's famous for her body. She was crowned Playmate of the Year in 2015.

The model then went into serious damage limitation mode, with the well-used "I didn't meant it" excuse. After deleting the picture, she went on Twitter.

"There is no excuse," she said.

"I understand fully the magnitude of this post that I have hurt a lot of people, women. Body shaming is not okay...and not something to joke about."

She then said it was a private conversation that "should never have happened."

The model added she was "deeply sorry" for "hurting and offending you all."

She also filmed an apology too.

But the apology didn't wash with everyone.

And others used her own words against her.

The 29-year-old model from Los Angeles ended her apology by saying "I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing."
