El Chapo's Letter To ISIS Exposed as Hoax

Fugitive Mexican drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman reportedly sent an e-mail to the leader of ISIS warning them to stop interfering with his "operation" or they will be destroyed.


It turns out the entire letter is a hoax— blogger Steve Charnock, who works for Thug Life videos, revealed to the Daily Mail that he fabricated the satirical piece, which was somehow picked up by dozens of mainstream outlets and went viral. He claims that it was only intended as a faux news story. 

Infamous Mexican drug lord, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman, has reportedly waged war on ISIS in an encrypted email that was leaked online.

The e-mail threat was purportedly sent to leader of the Islamic State Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi — not because of the heinous crimes they’ve committed or the innocent lives they continue to steal — but because one of his cartel’s shipments was sabotaged.

The letter, which was first leaked by cartelblog.com, claims that Guzman’s men will “destroy” the terrorist group if they continue to impact his operation.

Mind you, El Chapo has been in hiding since escaping a maximum security prison in Mexico back in July. No one can locate his whereabouts, but apparently they can access his e-mails...

The letter reportedly reads:

“You [ISIS] are not soldiers, you are nothing but lowly p***ies. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”

“My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a wh*re that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them.”

El Chapo’s words certainly don’t seem like a ploy to become a "hero" and possibly gain immunity for his own crimes, as some have suggested, it literally just sounds like he means business.
