#Feloncrushfriday takes social media by storm

When the Stockton Police Department posted the details of their latest bust on Facebook, they couldn’t have anticipated the popularity of one of the criminals charged.

Since Wednesday the mugshot of Jeremy Meeks has gone viral generating over 58,000 likes on the department’s Facebook page.

The 30-year-old six-time convicted felon is being held on $900,000 bail for illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity.

But even a long wrap-sheet hasn’t kept women and men from swooning over his modelesque headshot mugshot.

In an interview with ABC News 10 the (married) felon told reporters that he is aware of his new internet fame.

“I just visited my wife, and she said it like, blew up all over Facebook,”

The dreamy felon’s online supporters even started their own hashtag #FreeJeremyMeeks.

Fast forward to Friday where Twitter has taken it a step further with the creation of #Feloncrushfriday  where felons around the world are getting a little slice of internet fame.

Take look at some of the most hilarious posts:
