America’s Most Desired Felon: See The Jeremy Meeks Memes!
Yesterday, in Stockton, CA, a gun sweep of the city’s West Ranch area resulted in the arrest of four men…and turned one into an internet sensation.
According to the local station Fox 40, the Stockton Police Department posted the mugshots of all four men on their Facebook page, and the photo of 30-year-old convicted felon Jeremy Meeks was flooded with comments about his model looks.
As of now, the mugshot has over 7,700 ‘shares,’ 65,000 ‘likes’ and 18,000 comments. Unsurprisingly, the photo has also been turned into a meme and has even gotten the hashtags #FreeJeremyWeeks and #FelonCrushFriday trending nationally on Twitter.
One commenter dubbed Weeks the “best looking man in the world” while another wrote, “First thing this guy needs to do when he gets out is go to calvin klein. He’ll make millions if he can stay off the streets. Old habits die hard though.”
According to the Associated Press (via Us Weekly), Meeks is currently being held on $900,000 bail and is considered to be one of the Stockton area’s “most violent criminals.”
