El Chapo's Son Quits Cartel To Pursue Career As Social Media Influencer

LIFESTYLE | November 8th, 2019 11:58 AM

It’s every millennial’s dream to somehow make a living by sitting at home and being praised for the ideas they came up with while sitting on the toilet for an hour as their body rejected the most recent view-grubbing dietary fad, and who is Ovidio Guzmán López but simply the average millennial? The son of Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán recently had a bit of a spat with the Mexican authorities, which caused him to reconsider his career in the cartel. He had to ask himself if, deep down in his heart, this was really what he wanted to be doing for the rest of his life.

“Yeah, I got arrested and the cartel shot up the town and murdered a bunch of innocent people, and I guess that’s cool and all, but I started to realize that it’s really just my dad’s thing,” Ovidio said. “Every week, I’m just counting the days until the weekend. It’s not really my passion.”

Ovidio officially stepped down from the family business last week and started posting vlogs on YouTube and going live on Instagram to his dozens of followers. He’s currently working as a waiter and living with his aunt (in his newest vlog, he goes on and on about how his aunt won’t get off his back about getting a “real” job or at least ordering a few executions for the family business every once in a while), but only a few days into the new venture, he remains optimistic that he’ll soon get an endorsement deal and start reaping the benefits of his following.

You can follow Ovidio, who is trying to shed his cardel nickname of “El Ratón,” on social media at @ElChapito, and his YouTube channel is “O-Video.”
