When it comes to the Netflix series, ‘Narcos’, Pablo Escobar’s son isn’t too impressed.
The hit Netflix series is an American crime web television series created and produced by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro. The series tells the story of the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar, a notorious drug kingpin.
While the show is binge-worthy, Pablo Escobar’s son wasn’t too pleased with some of the details following the release of season 2. Marroquin finds 28 things to be incorrect in season 2. Escobar’s son, Sebastian Marroquin, took to Facebook to let the world know the truth.
Sebastian Marroquin’s Facebook Post
Sebastian Marroquin states in his over 2000 word Facebook post, explaining the 28 things that are wrong. He also goes on to reference pieces from his novel. To read his full post, follow this link to his Facebook Post.
Among the 28 “grave mistakes”, Marroquin mentions that his uncle Carlos Henao was not a drug dealer and never lived in Miami and he insists that his paternal grandmother betrayed his father and was nowhere near like the sweet character in the series.
What happened here is a big issue with making “based on real life” shows, or movies. The writers have the possibility of facing scrutiny from a source that was apart of the events. This is especially true when the writers take artistic liberties and alter the story in any way. Marroquin has shown this to be true with his 2000 word correction.
Although this came out as some sort of frustration with Marroquin, he didn’t quite lose out. He used his Facebook post as a perfect opportunity to plug his book, “Pablo Escobar: My Father.”
Narco’s season 2 is currently available to stream on Netflix and has been renewed for two more seasons as well. It was nominated for many awards, including the Golden Globe, and holds an 8.9/10 review on IMDb. If you can forgive the errors, maybe you can check out the show for yourself!
