When stunting for Social Media goes wrong…. A Mexican Youtube star known for his excess drinking as gunned down after hurling an insult at a notorious cartel boss on social media, authorities said.
According to The NY Post:
Juan Luis Lagunas Rosales, better known as “The Pirate of Culiacán,” was just 17 but had amassed thousands of followers on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, where he posted pictures and videos of himself downing bottles of booze, or standing alongside scantily clad Latina women, large quantities of marijuana or shiny sports cars.
In one recent video, Rosales apparently insulted Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, also known as “El Mencho,” head of the New Generation Cartel of Jalisco.
“El Mencho a mí me pela la verga,” Rosales said, according to El Pais, loosely translating as “peel my c–k.”
A short time later, on Monday, four men armed with “long weapons” stormed into a bar and opened fire at a table where Rosales was sitting and executed the teen, riddling him with 15 bullets, El Pais reports. Other local Mexican media outlets said he was hit as many as 18 times.
