The Social Media Posts of El Chapo’s Sons And Other Narcos Are Still Online For Everyone To See

Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán is currently being held in prison in New York and will face a trial set to begin in November. If convicted on charges related to international drug-trafficking, El Chapo faces a life behind bars. The upcoming trial has not prompted his sons to scrub their social media accounts and take down their profiles, even after purportedly saying last year that a fellow cartel leader tried to kill them. 

Although the validity of El Chapo’s sons’ social media profiles comes into question, there is no doubt the posts show a gasp-inducing, eye-widening look behind the life of a drug cartel boss. This is what social media followers can still see and comment on…

The most recent post on his son Iván Archivaldo Guzman’s Instagram account was back in 2017, but a quick look through his 9-post profile shows some of “El Chapito’s”ostentatious displays of wealth.

Here you have a private jet awaited back in May of 2015, which Guzman captioned, “Hay que seguir trabajando” (you have to keep working.)

In a post dating back to May 10, 2015, he fanned out over $2,000 in cash.

In another post uploaded that same day, some users commented in Spanish “Dame chamba haha” (give me work) and “Regálame unos billetitos” (give me some little bills.)

On Twitter, the posts of jets and cash are still up, even though his brother Jesús Alfredo Guzmán’s account has been suspended.

Translation: (“I distract myself with women, but I’m always aware of my tasks.”)

Guzman’s Facebook profile is still visible, although his last few posts were also from 2015.

And El Chapo’s son isn’t the only one taking to social media to showcase his lifestyle.

The first post on his profile shows four guns on top of a Porsche, with an accompanying caption of “For protection.”

Another post shows money, guns and expensive brand labels.


In another Instagram account titled @narcocultura_, there are several photos showing gold plates, guns, and cash on a table.

The post is captioned in Spanish, “los tiempos de antes,” translated as: way back when.

Will social media companies continue to suspend these accounts or will these drug cartel leaders continue to snap a photo and upload? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

The Vocals In These “Coco” Song Covers Will Make You ‘Un Poco Loco’

It’s almost closing in on a year since Pixar released its runaway animated hit, “Coco,” which captured the hearts of adults and children around the world since it first appeared in theaters in November of last year.

The success of the movie has been translated into “Coco”-themed sweet treats at Disneyland, action figurines, merchandise, and more.

The movie’s charm has also found its way onto social media via some stellar cover versions of two of the film’s most popular songs. Here’s a roundup of some of the versions that make us “un poco loco.”

1. Cover by Luis Angel Gomez Jaramillo

Luis Angel Gomez Jaramillo is the voice behind Miguel in the Spanish language version of “Coco.” The 13-year-old’s charming cover of “Un poco loco” is bringing the lively vibes of the song alongside the strings and trumpet of a mariachi. The scenery in the music video is breathtaking and the inflection he puts on the words gives the song a pep in its step.

2. Cover by José Esparza

Born in Chicago and raised in Aguascalientes, Ezparza started playing his guitar in 2011. His rendition of “Un Poco Loco” is what serenatas are made of. You can feel the connection he has with the words.

3. Cover by Alexia Romero

Alexia Romero’s ukelele cover version allows you to learn how to play the guitar AND bust out a karaoke version.  Snaps to Alexia for having such a well-rounded tutorial like this.

4. Cover by Lautaro y Adrián Eduard

The guitar intro (and camera work) is shaky at the beginning of this version, but we (and over 1 million views) have looked passed it. A+ effort on the “Coco” costume! The video was made as a ‘thank you’ for the guests of Lautaro’s seventh birthday party. ADORBS.

5. Cover by Milan Musical

This cover is more than great! The “Ayy!” at the beginning, the Día de los Muertos-inspired face paint and the Hector cameo are all 💯. Push play immediately to make your life better.

6. Cover by Dakota & Jeremy Lopez

Disclaimer: get some tissues while watching this heartwarming father-daughter version of “Remember Me.” The harmonies flow together effortlessly and the duo’s vocals softly lull you to sleep with this sweet lullaby.

7. Cover by Carlos Rivera

Mexican singer and winner of La Academia is the voice and face for Disney Music’s Latin America VEVO channel. This music video visualizes the flowers, colors and sights of a Día de los Muertos celebration in his native Mexico.

8.  Cover by Pedro Leitão & Maria Galante

Have you ever wondered what Hector would sound like in Portuguese? This delightful rendition of “Remember Me” can help you learn some lyrics in a whole new language. It’s a melodic win-win situation.

9.  Cover by Antoine Rinié

Antoine Rinié’s hauntingly beautiful cover of “Remember Me” is exactly what a great acoustic cover is all about: no gimmicks—just a guitar, a mic and some soul-piercing vocals. BRAVO!!
