STOCKTON, Calif. -– The wife of Jeremy Meeks, the man whose mugshot went viral, is not thrilled with all of the attention her husband is getting for his looks.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t see her at all in the cameras, because she’s upset,” Simone Johnson, a friend of Meeks’ wife told CBS13. “Shes 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.”

Meeks’ mugshot went viral last week after being posted to the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook.

Much of the attention was from women thinking he was too good looking to be in prison, some even raising money to set him free.

It did not take long for the photo to get 50,000 likes by Friday morning.

Meeks, who has a history of theft and assault, was charged with illegally possessing a firearm, as well as other gun and gang-related charges.

Prosecutors say Meeks was also accused of violating his parole.

      Errrrrr. More like,”Why hasn’t the picture of him and another guy looking pretty friendly together been getting all this airtime?”

  • Phat Boy

    It’s funny how shallow people are now these days. Although it’s nice to see light skinned brothers coming back in style, it’s a crying shame that all these women don’t care about this dudes violet past. Again it’s all about presentation & image, not about substance. I bet if this same dude had of just graduated from college to be a dentist, without the tats everywhere and went to the club, these same women would not give him time of day.

    NY Daily News & It’s Readers, #JEREMYMEEKS #FELEONYFRIDAY
    Maybe it’s me, maybe I am just a mother with a very different set of values or I see the world through a different set of eyes. I understand that the World has been very taken by Mr. Meeks and his mass appeal. Usually we didn’t look twice at felons when they flashed on the news, we just looked at them as some sort of underbelly, something that you didn’t want to become, the stuff that you warned your children not to become. We never idolized felons, who makes a movement of hashtags to say that this man that we don’t even know makes our panties wet? I don’t know this man, and these women whose self-esteem sag on nothingness does not speak for me. I tend to like my men with character, jobs, moral, sense of self, sense of family, the ability to learn from mistakes. Credit worthiness, college degrees ambition, a future that we can both see ourselves going down. A man who when he looks at his children he can tell them he will be there for them, he will not be someone’s toy in prison, that he can look at his children promise them a life without bars. Well that’s what I like in men, I can’t speak for Mr. Meek’s significant other, and obviously her standards are a lot lower as is his 40,000 member fan club!
    As for her being upset with the internet for making memes about her husband, I find this hilarious, freaking hilarious. Her statements are hilarious, “there is a man behind these memes”. No mam’, there are people behind your husband’s crimes! That is what I find upsetting and that is what the justice system will let you see. They allowed you the privilege to have your pretty “boy” husband back home after two years of free accommodations courtesy the “wet panties” of the tax payers, yet he didn’t learn. Even though you and his mother strain to tell us his Love of the Lord. It is funny that you are upset at the memes and not upset that your husband is in a gang, that your husband is a felon, that your husband at any moment could leave your babies orphaned, or you a widow. That at any moment a rival gang could rush into your home and rape and rob you, but maybe you are too hardcore to be upset by that, who am I to “judge”.
    The fact that you are upset by memes and not that your babies daddy walks around with guns in a car that they ride in is a cry and same at the mother that you are and a shame that we as a country, that we need licenses to hunt, to drive, but we let animals make babies to grow up in these environments in a perpetual cycle of hopelessness and despair…. But I am sure as “pretty boy Meeks” gets shipped off a new daddy will take his place and I will fund your food stamps until you get on your feet, while I pay for him for the rest of his pretty accommodations for life.
    You my friend, it’s not too late to make smarter choices for the sake of your children, and allow pretty boy to be beautiful in jail. I’m sure he will do just fine… most boys like him will get taken care of for the long haul.

    It’s also just an unfortunate thing, maybe had he been brought up in a different place, family, or environment, we might be seeing him modeling or acting instead of in jail. he really could have been a model. it’s sad.
