A teen social media star has been brutally shot dead while partying at a nightclub after mockingly telling a notorious Mexican drug lord to perform a s*x act on him.
Juan Luis Lagunas Rosales, 17, became known in Mexico for posting videos of him on social media showing him chugging beer and bottles of whiskey, and sometimes getting so drunk he would pass out.
His death came less than a month after he filmed himself mocking Nemesio ‘El Mencho’ Oseguera Cervantes, a drug cartel leader.
On Monday night, Rosales unintentionally shared that he was partying at a local nightclub in western Mexico on Instagram. Then a squad of young men busted into the establishment and shot the social media star more than a dozen times.
Mexican authorities were investigating if Juan Luis’ criticism of “El Mencho” had something to do with his death. So far nobody has been arrested and the motive has not been established.
