'Handsome' mug shot of felon Jeremy Meeks goes viral



By EMILY CEGIELSKI

Jeremy Meeks, a 30-year-old convicted felon, was arrested Wednesday in an illegal weapons sweep in Stockton, California. His mug shot exploded on social media after the Stockton Police Department followed protocol and uploaded the photo to their Facebook account. As of Friday morning, the image had received nearly 60,000 likes, over 17,000 comments and about 7,000 shares.

In an odd twist, his viral mug shot has garnered him attention and fame, when it's usually the other way around; A celebrity's mug shot only goes viral because they are already famous. In honor of Meeks' sexy shakeup of the conventional routes to fame, we've put together a gallery of celebrity mug shots, past and present. Some you probably never knew were arrested -- like Tim Allen, who spent 2 years in prison for trafficking 1.4lbs of cocaine and Jane Fonda, who was arrested in 1970 for allegedly trying to smuggle narcotics through the Cleveland airport.

These are the same people who re-elected obama to a second term.

Has the world turned such that social media dictates and breeds such idiocy? Grown people acting like 12 year old school girls over this criminal? He'll probably get a Versace modeling contract or something or be the new bachelor.

Just goes to show you some women choose looks over decency. It's unbelievable that any woman would want this known criminal in their homes, (those were some of the comments on the facebook page...not shown here) just because he's handsome. This is clearly the reason why some women have so many bad/failed relationships because they would rather be with a handsome man and completely discard information about his criminal past as opposed to an average looking guy who is decent. Many men are the same many of them will get with a woman who they can fully know is a horrible person just because she's attractive. Sad commentary on life.

If people think this thug is handsome they need an intervention. It's all these horny females who are sex crazed that think this guy is good looking. Did you hear him try to talk? He sounds like a ghetto illiterate.

Sooo, as point of fact, this means people (most especially TMZ staff) are making money off this person's criminal acts by promoting him. I'd like to see them justify that to the victims.
