Just Because El Chapo’s Threat to ISIS Was Fake Does it Make These Tweets Any Less True?

In these dark days, people are DESPERATE for a beacon of hope. So desperate people even endorsed the infamous Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán to take down ISIS. Sadly, the people were let down this time.

It all started when an obscure blog posted this story claiming to have gotten the information from a Mexican blogger.

“It turns out a Mexican blogger leaked the message after it was sent email encrypted directly to the Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, a prominent ISIS leader. The blogger has intimate ties with actual Sinaloa cartel members, so it looks as if the warning is indeed legit,” reads the opening paragraph of the blog post.

And it didn’t take long for people to celebrate the news.

A lot of people recognized El Chapo’s unmatched huevos.

People were preparing themselves for an epic show down of brute strength.

For a brief moment, El Chapo was becoming the unexpected and much-needed savior of the people.

He was on his way to becoming the action movie star.

Others, like MMA fighter Tim Kennedy, were ready to enlist in El Chapo’s anti-ISIS army.

A few people saw this as an opportunity to advance their careers in an unstable economy.

A silent minority finally found their voice to give El Chapo some public support.

Things got a little weird here for a minute.

There were doubters, like Spencer Pratt. Yeah, THE Spencer Pratt.

Turns Out ‘Machete’ Director Robert Rodriguez Is Behind ‘Rain On Me’

As a director, Robert Rodriguez never fails to deliver.

From the hits of the”Spy Kids” franchise to “Machete”, the seasoned Mexican-American filmmaker has built a career on high-action movies that always deliver colorful punches. It’s why, when it was recently revealed that he added Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s latest music video collaboration to his lineup of films we were pretty surprised. And awestruck.

“Rain on Me,” is the latest Gaga X Ariana Grande collab to go viral and the first music video to be directed by Rodriguez.

Over the weekend, the second single from Gaga’s upcoming sixth studio album Chromatica dropped much to the delight of fans. The song, which visits the genres of dance-pop, disco, house, and electropop has been described by Gaga as a “celebration of tears” and has already received quite a bit of praise from users online. According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to Grande, the 16-song Chromatica will also feature contributions from Elton John and South Korean group Blackpink.”

Of course, over the weekend, fans could not get enough of the video.

Or the chemistry between the collaborators.

Check out the music video below.

A Fight Broke Out In A Florida Home Depot Parking Lot And You Can See The Coronavirus Spreading

A Fight Broke Out In A Florida Home Depot Parking Lot And You Can See The Coronavirus Spreading

There is one thing that will always deliver, even during a pandemic: fights. Even while the world is on lockdown and a virus is spreading, people can still find a way to get into a fight. This fight comes to you from a Home Depot in Florida.

A fight broke out at a Home Depot parking lot in Florida.

The fight took place at a Home Depot in Tampa and the fight itself is wild. Four men are in a melee and the more you watch it, the wilder it gets. First, you notice the wildly swinging paint cans. Paint is flying and you are all wondering how in the world the people hit with the paint cans are still standing. Then you realize that the pickup truck is in the splash zone. Next thing you know, one of the men is going after someone with a shovel. Yes. A shovel that you use to dig holes with. It truly is a wild ride and it has left the Internet wanting answers. Most of all, why?

If you come across it with no warning on Twitter, the video is a lot to process.

How did this fight start? Who threw the first punch? What is there to fight over in Home Depot? There are so many questions watching this fight. It can’t be possible that the best way for this fight to go off includes paint flying everywhere.

The guy with the shovel is the sleeper in this fight.

Everything is already so crazy that you aren’t sure what to take in first. Then, out of nowhere, a shovel rises straight into the air and all of your focus goes right to it. The man slams it down hard and it isn’t clear if he hit his intended target.

Some people, while not surprised, are still just done with Florida right now.

Florida has this reputation to always draw attention to itself and never for the right reasons. This fight in the time of Covid-19 is just the latest iteration of the Florida we have come to know. From politics to bizarre moments, Florida is a frontrunner in the race to be the wildest state.

On the other side, there are people who literally cannot wait until something like this comes out of Florida.

Social media is a crazy world. There are things happening on there that you would never believe would actually happen. Yet, social media is there to take the craziness of the world and serve it right up to you on a silver platter.
