The Netflix series “Narcos,” which chronicles the rise and fall of famed Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura), premiered its second season on September 2nd to generally positive reviews. However, not everyone is so thrilled with the series because they supposedly play fast and loose with the facts. One of the series’ harshest critics is none other than Escobar’s son Sebastián Marroquín, who has taken to Facebook to post a list of 28 inaccuracies in the second season.
“Dear friends, here I share my personal reflection of the second season, so beware of the veracity of its content,” wrote Marroquin. “On behalf of my country and in honor of the real truth of the incidents which took place between the 80’s and 90’s I see [an] obligation to [correct] serious mistakes of a series that claims to be as truthful.”
Some of Marroquín’s inaccuracies include that his uncle Carlos Henao was not a drug dealer and never lived in Miami, Pablo Escobar’s favorites soccer team was the Independiente Medellín, not Atlético Nacional, and that Marroquín’s paternal grandmother was the one who betrayed Escobar.
