Move over, Jeremy Meeks, there’s a new bad boy in town, and the Internet is going nuts for him.
Remember Meeks is the California man who — despite a rap sheet littered with charges related to gang membership, firearm possession and grand theft — became a viral sensation in June because of his attractive mugshot.
Now, Sean Kory has stolen the social media spotlight after his alleged Halloween escapades and subsequent police photograph.
Police in Santa Cruz, California, said the 29-year-old attacked a person dressed as a Fox News reporter during the city’s downtown festivities on October 31.
Kory “attacked the victim telling him he ‘hates Fox News’ ” and then “grabbed the victim’s microphone and placed (it) down the front of his pants and proceeded to rub the microphone on his crotch,” according to the police report.
Police said Kory then attacked the victim with an aluminum tennis racquet. The victim was not injured and reported the incident to police, who chased down the fleeing Kory, the report continued.
Kory’s mugshot sparked numerous reactions on Twitter, many from women praising his looks or comparing him to Meeks.
