For those of you who haven’t heard of the “Hot Mug Shot Guy,” his name is Jeremy Meeks and he’s in prison for committing a number of crimes, including a weapons charge and gang related crimes. His mug shot was put on the Stockton police web page and he’s now become a viral sensation because he is “hot.” Women are swooning over his pictures like 12 year old girls at a Justin Bieber concert. This is not the part that annoys me. Ladies, if you want to swoon over this guy and his “bad boy” image, far be it from me to come between you and your swooning.
What infuriates me is the fact that his mother is collecting donations online to raise money for his 1 million dollar bail and people are DONATING!!! Are you freaking kidding me??!! Let’s not give that money to starving children in some third world country, help the disabled in our own country, or give to the animal rescue organizations. Why would we do that when we can get this guy out of prison (where he put himself!) so he can pursue a modeling career. He’s landed an agent from prison for those of you who didn’t know. His agent is a former porn star (classy)!
My friends and I have spent years living in tents, abandoned houses, and bomb shelters with no money because we are fighting for what we believe. People need to get their priorities straight. This is what’s important? This guy is good looking, so let’s spend an enormous amount of money to bail him out. If he wanted to be a model so badly, he should’ve pursued that years ago instead of leading the life he did. It’s time to live with the decisions you made, Mr. Hot Mug Shot!
Thanks for listening to my bitching.
