If you thought former drug kingpin Alpo was in the witness protection program after snitching on fellow drug lords, you thought wrong.
Actor Faizon Love (right) posted a photo of himself posing with the notorious Harlem drug dealer-turned-federal witness Alberto "Alpo" Martinez.
In the photo caption Faizon hinted at an upcoming project with Alpo: "Y'all not ready for Alpo and Faizon ...oh sh*t."
Faizon later deleted the post after receiving backlash for posing with the man whose testimony sent lower level drug workers to prison.
Alpo was released from prison after serving a portion of his 35-year prison sentence.
He was once considered a hero to Harlem residents who looked to him for Thanksgiving turkey giveaways and for protection from rival drug dealers.
But Alpo's admirers turned on him after he murdered drug rival Rich Porter in 1990. Porter was reportedly a blood relative of the late socialite Kim Porter.
According to VladTV, Alpo spared himself from serving a life sentence by testifying against his alleged D.C. enforcer Wayne "Silk" Perry in open court. Perry received five consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.
According to Vice, Alpo was released from prison in a little-known federal prison witness protection program called "cheese factories" in 2015.
