Mugshot of man wanted for burglary goes viral thanks to all the savage comments

There was a day in the not-so-distant past when even the most outrageous mugshot would get little more than a laugh from inside the walls of a police station.

But now criminals can find themselves the subjects of unlikely viral fame either because they are extremely good looking, or, as is usually the case, because they have an amusing physical attribute. Now, the latest person to go viral due to their mugshot is 18-year-old Martin McDonagh from Lincoln, England.

Despite the fact that he was wanted for burglary back in September of last year, this did not deter Northamptonshire Police from sharing his mugshot again this month... because they knew fine well that it's viral gold.

I mean, look at his wonky eyes:

Understandably, the post went down a storm on Facebook and countless users flocked to the comments section to mock Martin's eyes. The jokes are a testament to the fact that people on the internet are savage AF.
