STOCKTON, Calif. — The wife of Jeremy Meeks, the felon whose mugshot went viral last week, is decidedly unhappy about all of the Internet 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. “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.”
Meeks’ mugshot went viral after it was posted to the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page for a law enforcement operation. Tens of thousands of people shared the image, which has now become an internet meme.
Meeks was charged with illegally possessing a firearm, as well as other gun- and gang-related charges.
