“I don’t want Netflix or any other film production company to film any movies in Medellin or Colombia that relates to me or my brother Pablo without authorisation from Escobar Inc. It is very dangerous. Especially without our blessing. This is my country.”
This back and forth has been going on since 2016, when Roberto requested the show to check its facts before airing anything. The letter that he sent regarding the same was published by TMZ.
Roberto had demanded $1 billion from Netflix threatening to “close their little show” otherwise. He has also recently suggested that Netflix station armed guards to keep their crew safe in his country.
