"Its against the law to look this fine," posted Machado Trevio.

"We should start a petition. Free Jeremy Meeks, he is too attractive to be behind bars," posted Samantha-Jane Steel.

"Can we get a full body shot," Tamara Ellis asked.

"He needs to join a modeling agency when he gets out," Crystalin Veronica posted.

"Oh my goodness. He's more attractive than half of the Calvin Klein models I've seen," said Mechelle MaryMarie.

Meeks is no stranger to the law, and he's now being held on a $900,000 bond.

"He may be a tad bit cute but with 6 felonies he ain't that cute," Marissa Lewis said.
