Pablo Escobar’s Son Launches Clothing Line Inspired By Drug Lord
As of Pablo Escobar‘s story wasn’t glamourized and exploited enough, the Colombian king pin’s son, Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, recently launched a t-shirt line inspired by his dad. The 36-year-old created the company back in 2012 titled, “Escobar Henao,” which includes t-shirts inked with Pablo Escobar’s ID photos.
On Henao’s online shop, one T-shirt description is stamped with:
“This shirt has the ID card of the Liceo Antioqueño, the place where Pablo Escobar studied in high school. What will you do with your future? So reads the phrase that accompanies the T-shirt. Think before making decisions at the point of no return in your life. It’s never too late to correct the course.”
Henao’s father was gunned down in his native Colombia back in 1993. His son told El Diario:
“We don’t believe that a T-shirt will make youth more or less violent, but it ignites the conversation with messages unequivocal about peace.”
Escobar was an icon, but we can think of way better Latino headliners to rock on our chests. Seems like a cheesy way for his son to make a living off of his papi’s legacy. Would you rock Henao’s tees that range around $60 to $95 pesos?
