If I can't unsee this ...

Over the years there have been many social media related stories that sadly highlight the worst side of human nature. These include bullying, racism and fat shaming of the worst kind.
Recently Playboy model Dani Mathers has been forced to apologise after publically ridiculing an unsuspecting naked woman, who was taking a shower at her gym.
A laughing Dani posted a photo of the showering woman on Snapchat, with the caption: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."
Unsurprisingly, the unkind post resulted in a flood of criticism:

katie finn ‪@katie77f
‪@DaniMathers‪ absolutely appalling behaviour, to violate a woman for the world too see is disgusting, you should face charges for this!!‬

Amelia Pepper ‪@PervyPepper
‪@bekkirivz‪ @sassimommi @DaniMathers She may think she's beautiful but she's just showed everyone how ugly she really is.‬

With mounting accusations of body shaming, Dani quickly deleted the image and apologized. She then attempted to limit the damage the photo had caused; responding to the public condemnations she tweeted:

"There is no excuse. 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 went on to say that it was a private conversation that "should never have happened" adding that she was "deeply sorry" for "hurting and offending you all." In addition she uploaded an apology video to Youtube.

 

Not everyone was convinced that  Dani's apology was sincere:

Bonnie Reynolds ‪@bonniereynolds
‪@DaniMathers‪ No, you're sorry you got caught. Do you feel better about yourself by putting others down? You need to do some self reflection.‬

Claire ‪@StoriesCemetery
@DaniMathers Vile. You're a bully and an apology won't ever change that. Do you have any idea of the damage nastiness like this causes?

Greg Mann ‪@gmann72
‪@DaniMathers‪ Shame on you. Now we know who you really are. Can't unsee that either.‬

Dani ended by saying: "I need to take some time to myself now to reflect on why I did this horrible thing."
