It looks like Jeremy Meeks, the sexy convict who became an Internet sensation when his mugshot went viral this summer, may have some new competition.
Sean Kory, a 29-year-old man from Santa Cruz, California, has been dubbed as the Internet’s latest “Hot Mugshot Guy,” reports Us Weekly. The blue-eyed stud, who bears a striking resemblance to Meeks, was reportedly arrested over the weekend after yelling “I hate Fox News” and attacking a person dressed in a Fox News reporter costume at a Halloween parade in California.
Police say that Kory was at the annual Halloween parade on Friday when he began yelling at the victim about his hatred of Fox News. He then grabbed the victim’s microphone prop and “proceeded to rub the microphone on his crotch” before hitting the victim with an aluminum tennis racket.
Although the victim was not harmed, the incident was reported to police, who then arrested Kory while he was trying to flee. He was taken into custody at the Santa Cruz County Jail.
After the Santa Cruz Police Department released his mugshot, he was immediately compared to Jeremy Meeks and admired for his good looks.
“#jeremymeeks has competition #SeanKory for all those ladies having #feloncrushfridays this guy is…” wrote Twitter user @moinomnom.
“#SeanKory, When you get out of jail… I’ll be waiting boo,” tweeted @RosesandEcstasy.
Over the summer, Meeks became an Internet sensation after he was arrested and the Stockton Police Department in California published his mug shot on Facebook. The picture has racked up over 100,000 likes and inspired a host of memes.
It was also reported that Meeks landed a contract with Blaze Modelz, a large modeling agency based in Los Angeles, according to CBS Local.
However, Meeks was indicted in July over federal charges from the arrest and a 2002 felony grand theft conviction and is currently being held at the Sacramento County Jail without bail, USA Today reports.
In all this brouhaha, can someone please get a sexy humanitarian portrait to go viral? 🙂
