Authorities in the United Kingdom have warned people online against mocking the hairstyle of a wanted convicted drug dealer or they could face their own criminal charges.

The advice came after the force used Facebook to appeal for information about Jermaine Taylor from Newport, who breached his licence conditions after being released from prison in December.

But instead of the public helping police locate the wanted man, they instead made fun of his receding hairline which became the butt of jokes and puns from around the world.

Lea Hook said: "He was last seen in town; Police are combing the area".

One Facebook user posted: 'That hairline goes further back than Woolworths'.

Mario Saeed: "21 year old??"

One person wrote: "Who done his hair?"

Israel Folau: Izzy gone? Folau's Instagram mystery
Any person heading to Folau's Twitter or Instagram accounts will be met with messages stating the accounts no longer exist.

Another quipped: "Looks like his hairline is on the run too".

"What is it with prisoners released on licence, hair today gone tomorrow".

But thousands of people took to social media to mock his unusual hairdo.

Gwent Police later said that numerous comments "made us laugh", but stressed, "When the line is crossed from being amusing to abusive, we do have to make sure we are responsible and remind people to be careful about what they write on social media".

"However, when the line is crossed from being amusing to abusive, we do have to make sure we are responsible and remind people to be careful about what they write on social media".

The photo of Taylor has been liked more than 9,000 times, commented on 80,000 times and shared 13,000 times.
