YouTube star insults Mexican drug lord - ends badly

Juan Luis Lagunas Rosales, 17, won't be remembered for his intelligence. In 2017 the man known as 'El Pirata de Culiacán' thought his 300k followers on Instagram and 37k followers on Twitter made him bulletproof. Rosales decided to post a video mocking Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes (El Mencho), a notorious drug lord and cartel boss. In the clip, Rosales can be heard saying, “El Mencho can suck my dick.” That was a fatal mistake. Rosales gave away his whereabouts by tagging his location on Instagram. He was shot 18 times. An employee of the bar was also shot dead.
Cervantes is one of Mexico’s most wanted men and has a $5m bounty on his head.
