Back in June the Internet went wild for 30-year-old convicted felon Jeremy Meeks. Meeks had been arrested on gun charges and the Stockton Police Department’s posted his arrest mugshot on Facebook. Now Jeremy “Sexy Mugshot” Meeks almost had his own action figure.
The same company that created the Edward Snowden action figure and other dubious celebrities created a mock-up of Meeks.
The action figure idea follows all the social media attention and him landing a $30,000 modeling contract. The company ThatsMyFace.com had mocked-up a version of Meeks that is not behind bars and is 12 inches tall with 34 points of articulation.
Later Thursday, however, hundreds of thousands of cute convict crushes were dashed when ThatsMyFace announced they will not be selling the figure of “America’s Most Handsome Criminal.” Coincidentally, a modeling agency has rights to profiting from his likeness.
We should add, in the interest of constitutional rights to being innocent until proven guilty, Jeremy ‘Hot Convict’ Meeks has not been convicted for the most recent felony gun charges.
He was already a convicted felon from past offences, and has now been re-arrested. And took a much better mugshot.
