Pablo Escobar’s Son Slams Netflix Narcos Show

narcos-season-3-Sebastian-Marroquin

Sebastian Marroquin, the son of notorious Columbian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (who changed his name from Juan Pablo Escobar after his father died) has criticized the show Narcos for its depiction of drug traffickers. He says it paints them in too flattering a portrait.

“Today there is a cult of violence, to which the series done on my father collaborate.” Marroquin told Spanish newspaper El Periodico. “I am not opposed to telling stories, but to glorify criminals and show drug trafficking with glamour, this confuses the youth. Every day I get messages from young people asking for help to be like my dad. They want to be that bandit, they send me pictures dressed like him, with his moustache, with his hairstyle, with his sayings, making an ode to violence. The narco series has made my father a hero and have installed in the young the idea that being a narco is ‘cool’.”

It follows on from Marroquin criticizing the show last year when he posted on Facebook what he saw as 28 inaccuracies from the Netflix series. In the interview with El Periodico he says that he offered the show access to the family archive but they weren’t interested.

“Before they started the first season I went to them and offered them access to the family archive.” he said. “Photos, memories, unpublished videos, letters of my father. I proposed to tell the whole story without manipulating it, but they told me that they were not interested, that the family knew nothing. They preferred the inventions of writers who write from California, to the truth of those who suffer in this story and have learned lessons from it. The sad thing is that now there will be those who believe that reality was as the series tells it.”

Marroquin left Colombia after his father died to begin a new life in Argentina, becoming a public speaker speaking out against the drug war that ripped Colombia apart. In 2014 he published a book Pablo Escobar: My Father detailing what his life was like as the son of the leader of the Medellin cartel. He’s recently released a follow up called Pablo Escobar: What My Father Never Told Me.

Did Amelia Earhart Survive Her Plane Crash?

Did Amelia Earhart Survive Her Plane Crash?

A recently discovered photograph proves that Amelia Earhart did not die in a plane crash but was captured by the Japanese, experts have claimed 80 years after her disappearance. In the photo there are two people who it’s claimed are Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan. Earhart is sat down with her back to the camera, while Noonan is to the left.

A new documentary, Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence on the History channel, however, argues that the photograph proves Earhart and Noonan were picked up by the Japanese military, who believed they were spies, and taken prisoner.
