Well, in all fairness, he does have a nice face.
The above photo of Jeremy Meeks, a 30-year-old convicted felon who was arrested Wednesday on felony weapons charges in Stockton, Calif, had his mug (pun intended) shared on the Internet and it went viral.
After being booked, the Stockton Police Department posted Meeks’ mug shot on their Facebook page to raise awareness of the crime and arrest.
What they probably weren’t expecting was the massive amount of likes and comments that followed, and it had nothing to do with the fact that a felon is off the streets and everything to do with the fact that dude in question is HOT!
His mug shot currently has over 69,000 likes, 20k shares, and over 20k comments. He even has a fan page, memes, and inspired a trending tpoic on Twitter w/ the hashtag #feloncrushfriday…
Rather unfortunately, Meeks broke the hearts of literally thousands by admitting to having a wife and kids…
Speaking to a local news reporter about his new internet fame, Meeks said he learned of his viral mug shot from his wife…
“Well I appreciate the attention, but I want them to know that this is really not me,” Meeks said from jail. “I’m not some kingpin.”
Male celeb submission or request?
