*Ladies if were hoping for that hot jail house hunk Jeremy Meeks action figure doll to keep you all warm and fuzzy, fughetaboutit!
Oh, you didn’t know there was one? Yes, the operative word is WAS ’cause it ain’t no more.
Ok, for those who don’t know who the heck Jeremy Meeks is or have forgotten already, he’s the dude whose mugshot went viral after the Stockton, California police department posted it to their Facebook page back in June. He was immediately dubbed the “hot convict,” and apparently made a lot women they were behind bars with him.
OK fast forward to now and a company called That’s My Face, which claims to offer “free online facial reconstruction and analysis,” took the opportunity to put Meeks’ pretty-boy mug on a 12-inch action figure and sell it for $109.
The company put the info on its blog on Thursday, with the headline “Handsome prisoner gets dolled up.” It also included images of the doll holding a machine gun and posing behind bars. However, the post has since been removed, reports Mashable.
Mashable says that they reached out to the company for a comment about the doll, but was told by spokesman John Keaton that they were still “currently in contact with Meeks’ agent” … after they advertised the product.
That comment there is all you need to know that something wasn’t quite right. It wasn’t too long before Keaton got back with Mashable to say the action figure doll would no longer be for sale, due to a “threat of legal action” from Meeks’ team.
“Unfortunately, a representative from GR Media, who claims to represent Jeremy Meeks, did eventually get back to us and prefers that we do not publicize our one-off custom figure of Jeremy,” Keaton wrotein an email. “He demanded, under threat of legal action, that we remove the photos of the figure, which we have done.”
And as they when you don’t have anything to say, oh well.
