Pablo Escobar's Son Explains Every 'Insulting' Mistake Narcos Made

No. 2: His football team.

Like the rest of us, Pablo Escobar's son Sebastián Marroquín spent his weekend watching the drug cartel hijinks of Narcos. He didn't like it!

He had a few problems with the second season of the Netflix hit—28 in fact. And a football team is one.

According to Marroquín, his uncle Carlos Henao was not the drug dealer he's portrayed as in the series.

"He was always talking about making peace, not war," Marroquín said in a Facebook post, as translated by the site. "How sad that Netflix has shown so many corpses with the posters of los pepes hung up, and they forgot to publish the images of the body of my uncle Carlos tortured in that respect they were identical and also public."

But, the number-two biggest problem that Marroquín had with Narcos is that it got his father's football team wrong.


"My Father was not a supporter of Atlético Nacional, but of the independiente medellín," he wrote. "If the writers don't even know the favourite team of Pablo, how dare to tell you the rest of a story like that and sell it as true?"

Which, honestly, is a good point, we guess.

He goes on to claim that his mother never bought or fired a weapon, that his father died alone, that his father never mistreated his grandparents.

It's an interesting read, especially for fans of the series, which, is important to keep in mind, a fictional TV show and not a documentary. Still, though, you got the football team wrong, Netflix?
