Charlene Thompson, a 61-year-old lady from Cincinnati, is facing charges of felonious assault for dumping hot grease on another woman during an argument.

The altercation took place on December 2 in the 5100 block of Hawaiian Terrace. The details of the victims are not precise. However, it is known that she ended up with severe burns to her back and arms.

It is not the first time that Thompson faces criminal charges, though. In 2008, she was charged with assault and disorderly conduct while intoxicated. Both charges were dismissed.

Even though pouring hot grease on someone is very cruel, it was not the reason that made a lot of people go to Twitter to comment on Thompson. Her mugshot shows her wearing very extravagant neon eyelashes, what sent the Internet into a frenzy.

“Hope it’s the lash time she does something this disgreaseful,” wrote one user.

“Eye wonder why she lashed out and decided to use hot grease,” joked a second one.

Another user pointed out that the person who did her eyelashes should also go to jail. One of them said that the only explanation for this was that now people were using mugshots to get fame.

While that allegation might be wrong, Thompson is not the first criminal who went viral after her mugshot hit the internet. The most famous example of it is Jeremy Meeks, also known as “Hot Felon,” who even signed a contract with the modeling agency White Cross Management in 2002 (while still in prison).

A more recent case is the one of Marshala Perkins, 19, who was arrested in February 2018 after police officers found two grams of marijuana in her vehicle. Before the arrest took place, the lady was conducting a live makeup tutorial on Facebook.

When Mugshot Baes, a Twitter account that shares mugshots of women, posted her photo, it went viral in no time reaching more than 10,000 likes very quickly. Later, her online following significantly increased, what led her to reveal that she could create her own makeup company.

“Someone has reached out to me about starting my own makeup line. It’s crazy. My mind is blown. Now it’s turned into something so positive so I’m just going to embrace it and see where it takes me,” said Perkins, who wished God to guide and build her up in her journey.
