New Female ‘Prison Bae’ Nyla Murrell Sparks Frenzy Online From Men Who Offer To Bail Her Out

We all remember the original #PrisonBae Jeremy Meeks, the convict turned model who basically broke the internet when his mugshot was uploaded online in 2014. However, now there’s a new viral criminal in town, and this one’s a woman. Nyla Murrell-French, 22, may be serving seven years behind bars at an adult detention center in Minneapolis for stabbing a woman in the neck during a fight at a gas station in 2018, but she’s still got plenty of men (and even some women!) lining up for a chance to hold it down for her while she’s locked up.

  1. Murrell-French’s prison shots were uploaded to her Facebook page over the weekend. It’s unclear whether she has internet access and uploaded them herself or if a friend or family member did it for her, but it didn’t take long for the pictures to gain attention. “Have you guys seen prison bae 😂 guys are about to risk it all to save her from jail 🙌😅,” one Twitter user wrote alongside the photos.
  2. Men started going nuts for her immediately. It wasn’t long before the comments rolled in, with thousands offering to marry her, send her money, and shower her with gifts. “Baddie, let me know when you get out,” one person wrote. “W2s [are going to] go out and I’ve been saving for a crib but I’ll spend it to get you out,” another joked. One guy even called for her freedom, saying: “Whatever she did she’s forgiven…free her fine ass right now.”
  3. Of course, many men didn’t know what she did before professing their love. After learning the heinous details of her attack on the victim, one man wrote: “I was like [heart-eye emoji] until I found out what you went to jail for. Smdh.” Another added: “You can’t just go around stabbing someone and expect to be free or to not do time in prison.”
  4. To be fair, Murrell-French has shown remorse for her crime. In April 2019, the then 19-year-old as sentenced for stabbing another teenage girl during a fight, WCCO reports. The victim suffered a collapsed lung and injuries to her jugular but thankfully survived. While in court, Murrell-French, who had also racked up nine theft charges after the stabbing, cried and apologized for her “mistake.”

Thanking her new fans for their support, she also included her JPay prison money-wiring information in case anyone did actually want to follow through with sending her some money.
