The world’s most wanted drug lord, Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman's, children are living in the lap of luxury as they brag of their riches and power on social media.

The world’s most wanted — and richest — drug kingpin Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, has relentlessly spoiled his four children, and the extravagant lifestyles have inflated their egos enough to brag online of their world of luxury.

The escaped drug lord’s three sons and daughter have been showing off what money can buy with organized crime on their Twitter accounts. Images boasting fast cars, pet lions, bejeweled firearms and endless partying are ablaze on social media signaling the clan’s wealth and domination.

But their seemingly harmless photos clubbing with celebrities and flashy cars is ominously set off by images that convey threat and power— implying the overall violent influence and might of the notorious Sinaloa cartel which rose to existence through bribery and murder.

Yet Guzman’s oldest son, Ivan, cites his father’s humble background as justification for the ceaseless whirlwind of extravagant images.

Despite his claims, however, the images do not merely boast wealth and pride, but conjure up a far more threatening and unyielding power, an almost “don’t mess with us” vibe.

Uploads depict Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, the cartel's once top enforcer, in full military gear, captioned “For those who want to step onto my turf, I give them my army."

Gamboa warned again by bringing his gun to  a cinema with one image showing his pistol casually held beside his popcorn in a movie theater. Gamboa pleaded guilty in May to drug charges and faces possible life imprisonment when he is sentenced in October. He is the highest-ranking official in the Sinaloa cartel to ever be prosecuted by the United States.

The taunting display of riches is without a doubt tasteless, but paired with the family's show-off attitude of their gun collection and military gear, "spoiled brat" reaches newer, scarier heights.
