On Friday, the leader of the infamous Sinaloa cartel, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was captured after six months on the run from the Mexican government. A tweet from the Associated Press claims that a Mexican official said that Guzman’s unlikely interview with actor Sean Penn led Mexican forces to his whereabouts.
Penn’s Rolling Stone interview with El Chapo is long-winded, but BroBible’s Brandon Wenerd did a helluva job summarizing the meat and potatoes HERE.
In the most recent happenings of this crazy, multi-layered shit-storm, social media accounts that are believed to be linked to El Chapo’s sons have spewed vitriol and threatened retaliation in numerous posts since their father’s arrest.
Alfredo Guzman and Iván Archivaldo Guzman began their Twitter assault after Mexico’s president, Enrique Pena Nieto, sent out a Tweet indicating they’ve captured the world’s most wanted man.
Translation: ‘Mission Accomplished. I want to inform the Mexican people that Joaquín Guzmán has been detained.’
The brothers, whose Twitter accounts have more than a quarter million followers each, tweeted the following in response to the announcement.
Translation: ‘You don’t know what you’ve done or the mess you got yourselves into.’
Translation: ‘Fuck your mother.’
Iván’s brother Alfredo joined the threat party soon thereafter.
Translation: ‘I can be a saint if you’re dealing fairly with me, but otherwise I’m poison and the Government will soon know about the Guzmans.’
I give it 72 hours before El Chapo escapes again. The dude is the fucking Houdini of the prison system. Maybe he can teach Steven Avery a thing or two.
BONUS PIC: Iván doing whatever he rich people do I guess.
