Mexican drug cartels appear to be using customised guns with music superstar Lana Del Rey's face on them, to the chagrin of her fans, according to a viral video online.
A user on X shared a clip, now viewed more than 21 million times, of a man showing off his machine guns and handguns, all of which were loaded with magazines with the Video Games singer's face adorning them.
The page Visegrad 24 then picked up the story, sharing the clip with their 525,000 followers and writing: "Mexican cartels are using customised guns with Lana Del Rey's face on them."

However, there appears to be no further context to the clip online. Even still, Lana Del Rey's notoriously fanatical fans seem up in arms about the rumours.
"Stay away from her!" demanded one uber fan on a fan forum.
A second added: "The Patron Saint of drug cartels. But really, they can go to hell."
A third chimed in: "This is gross tbh fawk them. Cartels are the cancer the Americas."
Others lauded the star's ability to transcend her typical fanbase. "Questionable but we support regardless, I applaud Lana's impact."
Another person suggested the guns may come from a protection unit dedicated to the American singer.

"Protecting Lanita is their true mission," they said.
But reacting to the lauding of the cartel's apparent fine taste in music, another person took a common sense approach.
"I don’t think is something to be proud about after what those animals did to those 5 innocent young men last week," she wrote.
She was referring to five students who were reportedly brutally killed by the Jalisco New Generation Cartel earlier this week.
The cartel thugs reportedly forced one man to decapitate his childhood friend before he was killed.
Childhood friends Roberto Olmeda, 20; Diego Lara, 20; Uriel Galván, 19; Dante Cedillo, 22; and Jaime Martínez, 21, were all reportedly beheaded.
