Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was recaptured on Friday, and now stars are reacting to his arrest. Until Friday, the leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel had been on the run after escaping last July through a tunnel in the most well-guarded prison in all of Mexico. See celebrity reactions below to his recapture.

Jimmy Kimmel joked, “Happy to say I captured El Chapo,” before writing just one hour later, “crap, El chapo just escaped again. Que lastima.” Andy Richter also showed a sense of humor about the news by tweeting, “If El Chapo has been captured then who’s that guy that’s sleeping in our shed?” He then followed that up by cracking, “Ok, I woke him up, & now he claims to be Chappie. Says I must’ve misheard him. But Chappie doesn’t say ‘beep beep,’ right?”

Josh Groban was more brief succinct in his rection to El Chapo’s capture. He remarked, “Suck it, el chapo – Best Buy, promoted trend.” Albert Brooks got in his own zinger by explaining, “El Chapo has been recaptured! He said the $800 million Powerball jackpot was just too much to stay in hiding.” And while linking to a Newser article about the story, Jesse Ventura tweeted to his followers, “Mexico just recaptured #ElChapo.” Gossip Cop will continue to add more celebrity reactions to El Chapo’s capture.
