Is it gross to lust after a convicted felon? Jeremy Meeks left droves of women hot and bothered when the 30-year-old Californian's mug shot went viral after being posted on Facebook by The Stockton Police Department.
According to an article in Gawker, his wife of four years isn't impressed by all the attention, even though it has helped raise more than $3,000 toward his bail, which has been set at $1 million.
Meeks is the ultimate bad boy, having previously served nine years for grand theft auto and another two for grand larceny. A 'family man,' with a three-year-old son and supposedly reformed gang member, Meeks is currently charged with "11 counts of weapons possession and gang activity."
Personally, a criminal record doesn't get me going, neither does the teardrop tattoo. But clearly some women aren't so fussy, and have been giving Meeks their phone numbers.
Fess up, do you have a secret crush on this convict?
This man made for a disturbing and unlikely teenage heartthrob.
Remember that pitiful story about the little girl who was asked to leave KFC because her facial scars were putting fellow diners off their fried chicken? Well, according to an article in Gawker, the whole narrative may have been a fabrication by the three-year-old's grandmother.
Following much media attention that led to the family receiving donations of more than $100,000 (including $30,000 from KFC itself) toward Victoria Wilcher's medical expenses—as well as offers of free plastic surgery—the story was revealed by the Laurel Leader-Call to be a hoax.
Prior to the alleged KFC incident, Victoria's GoFundMe page had raised a paltry $595.
When the story went public, the accused KFC franchise smelled a rat and launched their own independent investigations. The facts didn't add up. Firstly, there is no security footage of Victoria or her family visiting any Kentucky location on the day in question, and no orders whatsoever were recorded for "mashed potatoes and sweet tea."
Notwithstanding that the whole incident may turn out to be fake, KFC has vowed that it will not withdraw its pledged donation.
This server who claimed she didn't receive a tip got her comeuppance.
Would you ever go topless in public? It's hot out and, let's face it, bra sweat sucks. But not everyone is as brave as Scout Willis, who recently strolled through New York topless. If you want to free the nipple, you may want to consider the Ta-Ta Top.
Essentially a nude bikini top with very realistic nipples, the Ta-Ta was created by a couple of feminists, Robyn Graves and Michelle Lytle, who made it their mission to make nipples less of a deal.
According to an article in Salon, the Ta-Ta is a fun bit of apparel, but best of all, $5 out of every $28 goes toward the breast cancer charity, Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation.
So in a bid to "free the nipple," the Ta-Ta aims to remove the sexual connotation around female nipples, which are censored in the most innocuous breastfeeding images on Instagram and Facebook.
"I think that the important thing about this product is that, if people look around and see this everywhere, then who cares if you can legitimately be topless? Because you’re already seeing it,” said Lytle.
The top is pretty realistic, it has to be said. And don't worry—more skin tones are on the way . . .
