Jeremy Meeks Speaks Out On Infamous Mugshot
After several days of being an Internet sensation, Jeremy Meeks is responding to all of the hype over his mugshot.
“I appreciate [the attention]. But I just want them to know that this is really not me, I’m not some kingpin,” said the new star. Meeks is a convicted felon who was arrested in Northern California earlier this week. His mugshot went viral after thousands of women fell in love with his eyes and began to comment and share.
Although Jeremy is appreciative of all the attention, his family and friends are not amused. “It’s ridiculous,” said family friend Rajanique Davis. “People are making jokes when this is not funny at all.”
In case you weren’t aware, Jeremy has a wife and two sons. He has been associated with a gang in recent years but has denied being a member of the pact. Meeks’ wife and kids did not attend his arraignment but are said to be furious at the attention that he has received from strangers.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t see her at all in the cameras, because she’s upset,” said friend Simone Johnson.
“She’s furious. Her man is in there and people are taking it as a joke, thinking it’s funny talking about his looks, saying all kinds of crazy things.”
Jeremy Meeks was arrested on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, during a gang sweep. He was arraigned on eleven felony counts related to firearm possession and probation violation on Friday. Meeks became an Internet sensation after the Stockton police department posted his mugshot on its Facebook page.
