Infamous drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman is upset that he is unable to watch TV while he exercises in prison.

New court records indicated that Chapo is frustrated that there is no TV in front of his indoor bike for him to watch while he exercises at Metropolitan Corrections Center in Manhattan – the only television is set up behind his bike.

Moreover, he is irritated that the TV only shows one movie and a nature program about a rhinoceros.

Guzman’s lawyers previously fought for his right to have a TV in the exercise room, but the kingpin is still not pleased, according to court documents obtained¬†by¬†TMZ.

‘El Chapo’s’ legal team are currently pushing to have Amnesty International evaluate his living conditions at the prison.

When he made an appearance in a Brooklyn court in February, his attorneys said the jail conditions imposed on the leader of the Sinaloa cartel were too severe.

He has escaped from maximum security prisons on two previous occasions in his native country of Mexico.

Attorneys said that that he is on lockdown for 23-hours a day, isn’t allowed visits with his wife or Mexican lawyer, and has been denied water by corrections officers on occasion.

Guzman has been at the New York facility since mid-January, where he came with female prisoners shouting his name.

‘El Chapo’ was extradited to the U.S. the night before President Trump’s inauguration.

He is scheduled to appear back in court on May 5th.
