Jeremy — I bet the last thing you expected when you were arrested on June 18 was that your mug shot would go viral and you’d become America’s latest heartthrob. But instead of just being shocked by your foxy fans, how about using this strange turn of events to turn your life around!
Jeremy Meeks, you may be jailed on felony weapons charges in Stockton, California, but you have now racked up thousands of female fans who are swooning over your piercing blue eyes and lush lips on social media. Your mug shot has been liked more than 50,000 times and you have 5,500 shares on the Stockton police departments’ Facebook page.
Jeremy Meeks: Use Fame To Make A Better Life
Not only that, but over 14,800 comments have been posted on the page, most expressing sentiments similar to this: “Holy [heck] I would arrest him too… hottest bad boy I’ve seen.”
Or how about this: “Yes, he is the sexiest criminal alive. He better take his behind to an agent once he gets out of jail,” tweeted Chinwe SaintDior.
Internet and media fame is probably only a small comfort to you right now, Jeremy, as you ponder your fate while being held on $900,000 bail. But wouldn’t it be great if you could use this experience as a serious wake up call to get yourself on a far better path that promises a far bigger future? After all, you’re 30 and you’re already a convicted felon who spent nine years in jail for grand theft auto.
Now you’ve been arrested again during a gang sweep and you face five weapons charges and one gang charge, according to Stockton police officer, Joseph Silva.
Jeremy Meeks’ Mug Shot Fame — It Could Change His Life
Jeremy — is this how you want to live your life going forward? You said that you’re married and have a young son in your jailhouse interview with USA Today. And, in fact, your mom, Katherine Angier, has posted photos of you with your son on GoFundMe, special fundraising Facebook page.
Don’t you want to be there with him, and for him, as he grows up? Do you really want to lose out on his childhood because you’re in jail again? Why don’t use your new fame as inspiration to change your life? The social media world is full of fans who think you could have a major career in modeling.
“Those eyes are dreamy — he was getting his model on, that stare is deadly,” tweeted Tasha Smith. And in fact, your fans have gone as far as Photoshopping your face onto high fashion ads like Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, and Hugo Boss.
Now that doesn’t mean that you could land a modeling contract once you’re sprung from jail, but it does suggest that you could do a lot more with your 6′ 1″, 170 lb. frame, piercing blue eyes, full lips, and chiseled cheek bones, than just get in trouble with the law!
The attention you’re getting should inspire you and give you the confidence to want more for yourself and family. You already have a family who loves you — your mom says that you’re “so sweet” and that you’re a “working man” and she’s doing her best on her “FreeJeremy” GoFundMe page to raise $25,000 to help in your legal defense.
So Jeremy, while you’re sitting in jail with lots of time on your hands, why don’t you resolve to make a better life for yourself and your family from this moment forward.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers — should Jeremy Meeks turn his fame into motivation to turn his life around? Let me know!
