American rapper Wiz Khalifa recently dropped by the grave of Pablo Escobar, known as one of the world’s most infamous drug lords. Taking to his social media, Khalifa posted pics of him standing at the cocaine kingpin’s tomb in Medellín while he smoked a blunt and laid down some flowers. Khalifa is currently in Medellín for a tour stop.
Reported by BBC, Medellín Mayor Federico Gutiérrez lashed out at the 29-year-old Pittsburgh rapper calling him a “scoundrel” and demanded an apology. Gutiérrez went on to say, “It shows that this guy has never had to suffer from the violence inflicted by these drug traffickers.” The mayor said Khalifa won’t be welcomed back until he apologizes. Escobar is responsible for thousands of victims being killed during the height of Colombia’s drug violence in the late 1980s.

Wiz Khalifa is a fool for going to Pablo Escobar’s grave and leaving flowers. Don’t blame the government for wanting to make him apologise
