There are few things in the world as sacred as tacos, especially after a late night of partying. However, in the neighborhood of Tlalpan in Mexico City, one man has gone viral for committing an atrocious offense: knocking a trompo to the ground. The Twitter video is going viral for all the wrong reasons and people are devastated by the action of one upset man.

According to one Twitter user, a man, identifying himself as a deputy, harassed a taquero claiming they weren’t allowed to be setup where they were.

The video shows the man rushing up to the taquero and taking a swing at him. The video doesn’t show what happened before but the start of the video makes it seem like the random man had a real issue with the taquero. After he missed his punch, the man, who’s identified as a deputy, takes aim at the trompo of meat and brings it to the ground.

Mexican Twitter woke up and was immediately devastated by the upsetting video.

The sheer image of the man lunging for the trompo is enough to make anyone freak out. Like, who would ever do that to an innocent trompo? Why would someone take away the joy of all the people hoping for their tacos?

The cruel attack on the innocent trompo has left many in serious disbelief.

It is truly a very sad scene. All of our hearts dropped with the trompo and are left shattered on the ground.

All of the hungover people in the neighborhood were truly saddened by the lack of their hangover cure.

Imagine that. You spend a night partying with your besties. Everything is great. The night is over, you crash into your bed and wake up with a headache and craving for the tacos al pastor from your neighborhood taquero. However, the taquero is out of business because the trompo is destroyed.

People are really feeling for the partygoers desperately seeking their tacos.

The world is already a crazy place when you have been drinking. The sudden disappearance of a taqueria while drunk would be one of the most disorienting moments in the night.

#LordTacos left everyone lost for words as they tried to figure out their emotions.

All of Mexico feels the pain witnessed in the video.

Honestly, everyone in the U.S. who has ever enjoyed a taco after a night of partying is also feeling the pain. It truly is a crime for the books because who would ever attack an innocent trompo.

There is one thing for sure, #LordTacos is one of the most despised people on Twitter right now.

It is 2019. Camera phones are everywhere. How can anyone think that they can get away with any kind of violence like this? When will people learn that moments like this are gold for social media?

You can watch the full confrontation below!

What do you think about the man’s attack of the tromp?

This Donkey Has Been Released From A Mexican Jail After Public Outcry

This Donkey Has Been Released From A Mexican Jail After Public Outcry

@defensaanimal / Twitter

A burro walls free after spending more than 72 hours in a local Mexican jail. He was booked and thrown in there because his owners, a couple in their eighties, were unable to pay their property taxes. 

Together with the help of a local animal welfare group, the donkey is a free from the jail cell and is once again back with his owners. 

Animal lovers everywhere are celebrating the news of a burros release from jail.

A donkey has been freed from jail in San Sebastián Río Dulce, Oaxaca, after 72 hours behind bars through the efforts of an animal rights organizations.

The animal was arrested over the weekend for its owners’ inability to pay local taxes.

Pascual Cruz and Alejandra Mejía, both in their 80s, did not have the means to pay the taxes, which other residents have denounced as abusively high.

After hearing that the couple had been refused the right to take the donkey food and water during its detention, animal rights activists in the state united to file an animal cruelty case with the state Attorney General’s Office.

Oaxaca animal rights group president Hilda Toledo said that activists had planned on going to Río Dulce to protest but the town is considered dangerous and outsiders must solicit authorization to enter, so they chose the legal route.

It all started when a couple in their eighties allegedly didn’t pay taxes. 

A donkey was booked into the town jail in San Sebastián Río Dulce, Oaxaca, apparently for unpaid property taxes.

In a truly cruel move, the city’s tax agent ordered the animals arrest so that the elderly couple wouldn’t be able to transport the firewood they use for cooking. But  Pascual Cruz and Alejandra Mejía, 88 and 86-years-old respectively, say they’ve been caught up in a power struggle between groups trying to take control of local resources. 

Authorities in the Mexican state of Oaxaca came to seize the couple’s burro.

Even though the couple says they only use the burro for domestic uses around the house, not for economic gain, the tax agent seized the donkey and placed it in the town jail. 

The incarceration was denounced by the Network of United Animal Rights Activists of Oaxaca.

“It may not be of much interest or importance to others, but it is for the animal’s owners,” said the organization in a Facebook post, “given that it is one of their most valuable possessions, since they use it to transport firewood from the hills to their home.”

The burro was being held without food or water and many people around Mexico were upset by the animal cruelty.

The couple also claims to have been refused the right to take the animal food and water during several days of imprisonment.

Many people around the world were really concerned for the donkey – some even writing to PETA for help.

One Twitter user wrote to to PETA and. Arjona animal rights supporting celebrities including Ricky Gervais. It’s not clear if any of them were involved in the release of the burro. 

Strangely, this isn’t the first time a donkey has been placed under arrest and thrown behind bars.

Another Mexican donkey landed itself in jail after biting and kicking two men.

The animal was locked up in a holding pen normally used for keeping drunks off the streets after it lashed out at the pair at a ranch in Chiapas state. 

The owner of the angry burro, Mauro Gutierrez, was told that he‘d have to pay the injured men’s medical bills before the creature is released from custody.

The Internet Sneaks Some Wacky Stuff Into Movie Theaters and It’s Giving Us Ideas for Our Next Movie Date

We love going to the movies. Whether going out with girlfriends or enjoying a classic date night, an evening at the theater is a winner. However, what we don’t like about the theater is the pricey concession prices. A night at the movies can easily break the bank if you give in to the expensive options at the snack bar which is why we don’t feel the slightest bit guilty about sneaking in the occasional soda can or bag of candy every once in a while. 

However, we were surprised to find that when it comes to sneaking things into the theater the Internet really does do the most.

For example, this couple used a baby car seat in order to sneak snacks into their local theater. Talk about ingenious! We found even more impressive movie sneaks while looking around on Twitter and Instagram and we just had to share them with our readers. Here are some of the most outlandish things that people have admitted to smuggling into the movies. 

1. A snack more fit for a college dorm.

2. A winning combination.

“Savages! I’ve had Wendy’s, wine and more 😬” @liz_laprieta 

3. Mini refreshment.

4. How did she even get this in?

Twitter / @illimattic408

Sneaking a watermelon into the theater would have taken a really big bag in order to go unnoticed. It’s more impressive because this melon isn’t even sliced into pieces. 

5. Pan = the perfect snack.

Twitter / @shitcoinmining

This isn’t just any bread, it’s the longest bread you can find. This Twitter user successfully slipped a baguette into the theater unnoticed and we’ve go to wonder where he hid it. Was it hidden up his sleeve? Down his pant leg? We want to know.

6. Just what the fanny pack was meant for.

Twitter / @fremlo_

We have questions. Was it cold pasta or warm? Are we talking spaghetti or more of a filled pasta? What’s the sauce situation like? Either way, this is a creative smuggle.  

7. A burrito baby was born.

Twitter / @mfrancook

Congrats, it’s a burrito! Sure, we’ve sneaked things into our bags before, but we’ve never gone full preggo belly just to smuggle in our snacks. This takes some real commitment.  

8. Another baby bump sneak.

Twitter / @jordynbink

If there’s one food worth getting caught with, it’s definitely tacos. This Twitter user implemented the old baby bump trick in order to get her Taco Bell into the theater. It even comes with a side of tortilla chips. 

9. A movie goer’s best friend.

Twitter / @xovaleriax0

It isn’t just food that people take into movie theaters. Man’s best friend has also been known to stow away and enjoy a film or two. This Twitter user was able to sneak her adorable Pomeranian into the movies. If we were in the same theater, we’d be too distracted by this puppy’s cuteness to enjoy the movie being played. 

10. We see your dog and raise you a cat. 

Twitter / @eric_young5

When we think about it, a dog isn’t such an out-there thing to see at the movies. A cat, though, is much more surprising. Cats often don’t like to do what they’re told but this cat is different. Mister Lewis was able to make it through an entire film. 

11. What’s impressive here is the number of nuggets that were snuck in. 

Twitter / @StrengthofFates

We can’t have just one nugget and, apparently, neither can this Twitter user. Check out how many she was able to smuggle in and we dare you not to be impressed. 

12. A snack perfect for a celebration.

Twitter / @rachharbin

We’d be afraid that this treat would melt on the way into the theater. Luckily for this Twitter user, the ice cream cake made it there in one piece. We hope they decided to skip the candles for this cake. 

13. A homemade treat.

Twitter / @atterbom_

Store-bought cupcakes are one thing, but have you ever brought your own homemade cupcakes to frost in theater? This Twitter user did. Buying candy may be easier but it’s much less memorable. 

14. Spaghetti O-M-G.

Twitter / @_bushybrows

The kids in us really appreciate this snack. The adults that we’ve become, however, are kind of grossed out at the thought of eating uncooked Spaghetti-O’s.  

15. The most important meal of the day.

Twitter / @fbhughes

Cereal isn’t the same without milk. Luckily, this Twitter user was able to sneak both into the movies. We wonder if it was an early morning matinee or a late-night film? Either way, great snack choice.
