Wiz Khalifa Making Tributes To Pablo Escobar Angered Colombians
In the past few years, infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar has seen an increase of notoriety after the hit Netflix show Narcos has aired and been successful. However, Colombians are still very sensitive about the notorious drug lord since his powerful Medellin Cartel murdered thousands in the South American country. So when Wiz Khalifa paid tributes to one of the most ruthless and violent criminals of all-time, Colombians were angry.
On Friday, Khalifa performed a concert in Medellin, Escobar’s hometown, then spent the weekend in the Colombian city. On Sunday, the rapper visited Escobar’s gravesite, which had flowers and a marijuana joint, He shared photos on his social media accounts.
Khalifa quickly deleted the photo after he received several livid messages from Colombians, who found the tribute insensitive since Escobar terrorized the country during the 1980s and 1990s.
Wiz also posted a photo of him smoking weed at the cemetery in Itagüí, where Escobar is buried alongside his family.
