Some people get to have all the fun*.
Claudia Ochoa Felix looks like Kim Kardashian, who she’s reportedly a fan of, and wields a hot pink AK-47. She’s also allegedly the boss of a ruthless Mexican assassination squad called Los Antrax.
Other times she’s taking selfies of her bangin’ lipstick.
Like, sometimes she just hangs out in skintight dresses, caressing a gold-plated assault rifle.
Naturally, the Empress of Antrax has her own Instagram account. I guess when your job is to literally kill people for massive amounts of money, you’re not afraid of keeping a public record of your glamorous lifestyle. Once again: even if your job is to literally kill people for massive amounts of money.
The Sinaloa cartel, by whom Los Antrax is contracted, is apparently “the most powerful drug trafficking organisation in the world,” thought to be responsible for most of the heroin smuggled into America.&
When the body of 23 year old Yurina Castillo – who looked like Felix and came from the same area – turned up, police believed it to be a botched assassination attempt on Felix. But she keeps on updating her Instagram nonetheless.
And of course, the Daily Mail is quick to remind you that there have been 100,000 estimated deaths since 2006 in the various drug-related violence in Mexico. Claudia Ochoa Felix’s lifestyle might look cool, but the real Kim Kardashian – one hopes – never killed anyone.
Felix, on the other hand, is allegedly complicit in the kind of systemic crime which is destroying Mexico.
Looking good in leopard print doesn’t erase the deaths, the political corruption, and the national instability the Sinaloa cartel perpetuates.
