Mom's Nude Photo Promoting Body Positivity After Playmate Snapchat Flap: 'Shame on You'
One mom has a serious message to the Playmate of the Year who posted a photo fat shaming a compete stranger in a gym locker room: Unsee THIS.
Christine Blackmon, a mom of 3, told Inside Edition she was “horrified” when she first saw the photo of the naked woman, unknowingly photographed by Dani Mathers and posted to Snapchat.
“That's such a violation — the woman was showering,” she said. “She thought she was in a safe place and she was made fun of.”
In a show of solidarity for the unknown woman, Blackmon came up with a bold idea, posting a nude photo of herself to Facebook.
“The picture I posted was right before working out. And I was horrified by it and I saw lumps and bumps but my husband thought it was beautiful,” she said.
The Army veteran from Orlando also wrote a letter on Facebook directly to Mathers.
“Not all of us work out to be ‘hot,’ some of us work out simply to honor the bodies we were given. That's all that woman was trying to do and you violated her. Shame on you,” Blackmon wrote. “I'd like to introduce you to my 5'10", 194lb lumpy, bumpy glory.”
Blackmon told Inside Edition: “I have no more confidence than anybody else. I'm very insecure about my body. I just felt comfortable about the support I had from the women in that community and that's the code Dani broke. We're supposed to lift each other up.”
Since posting the photo, Blackmon’s Facebook page has been flooded with thousands of photos of women promoting body positivity.
Mathers has since apologized for her original fat-shaming post she put on Snapchat.
