Sean Penn and Kate del Castillo have been warned to “run like the wind” in the opinion of Mexican cartel expert Mike Vigil in a piece over at Yahoo News. Both played a role in the capture of the fugitive drug lord “El Chapo” according to Mexican authorities thanks to Penn’s Rolling Stone interview. Now they might have bit off more than can chew according to Vigil.

Vigil is a former U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency chief of international operations and has years of undercover work within the Mexican cartels. According to his opinion, it wouldn’t be too difficult for the cartel to come after people like Penn and del Castillo:

“These cartels are very violent, they do not forgive any transgression and they will respond in a most violent manner,” Vigil told Yahoo News. “These are people who have dismembered, who have decapitated individuals. So killing Sean Penn and del Castillo means absolutely nothing to them…

“If Chapo Guzman perceives that they cooperated with authorities in his capture, [the cartel] will go after them,”
