El Chapo has been captured and it’s tearing the Internet apart. Seriously, people on Twitter and Instagram just don’t know how to feel right now.

It all started when Mexican president, Enrique Peña Nieto, sent out one tweet and people were immediately skeptical.

Translation: “Mission Accomplished: We have him. I want to inform the Mexican people that Joaquin Guzmán Loera has been detained.”

The unverified Twitter account suspected to belong to one of Chapo’s sons was quick to respond.

…Pretty sure you guys know what that means.

And then the Internet exploded in true social media fashion over El Chapo’s capture with memes.

Are you sure Steve? You’ve led us all astray before.

Emotions were split over the news.

Granted, some people just didn’t get it.

We understand, Ann. You hate Mexicans, enough already.

It’s cool, y’all. Latinos got Twitter today. Just take a seat and learn.

The people want to see El Chapo put an end to ISIS.

And he can’t possibly do it from jail…or can he?

And Trump. What about Trump?!

Low key, tho… How many people were waiting for a Trump/El Chapo show down? ??????????

It was as if a superhero had fallen today. ?

Some used social media to publicly grieve for El Chapo’s freedom.

No llores, mami. He’ll be out again soon.

And, at the end of the day, aren’t we all connected through music?

If only he would have listened and taken people up on their offers to help.

Surely if he was hiding out with @tee_27 he would still be free to roam.

All of a sudden, El Chapo became a source of inspirational quotes.

And poems.
