When Jeremy Meeks’ mugshot hit the internets last week, he became the latest social media sensation sweeping the nation.
Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV sat down with Meeks and interviewed him through the glass in jail.
The station admitted off the top that some don’t think he’s much of a story and also reminded viewers Meeks got his picture taken because he is a convicted felon who was caught carrying a weapon.
According to KXTV, Meeks wanted to set the record straight about his new found fame.
“Well I appreciate that, but I just want you to know that this is really not me.” Meeks told KXTV reporter Nick Monacelli. “Like, I’m not some kingpin.”
