No Respect

To the list of geniuses more respected overseas than in their home countries, we can add the name Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzmán, boss of the Sinaloa Cartel.

Maybe Carlos Slim gets tired of making small talk with him at these award ceremonies, so he pressured them to keep him off.

Well, there's always People en Español's 50 Most Beautiful People, which comes out in April...
