A video of a toddler dressed up for Halloween has sparked controversy after thousands of viewers deemed it inappropriate, Australia’s News.com reported.
The young boy, dressed as notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, has ignited an online debate over whether or not the costume is in poor taste after it tallied millions of views since being posted on Break’s Facebook page, News.com reported.
Escobar was known, before his death at the age of 44, as the "King of Cocaine" and was the wealthiest criminal in history with an estimated net worth of US $30 billion in the early 1990s, a related Mirror article reported.
In the footage, the child wears a floral shirt and a fake moustache as he stares at the camera, unaware of his costume’s significance, the Mirror claimed. In his hands, the little boy carries a gun and a small briefcase with a wad of money sticking out of the side, the Mirror article continued, adding that, in the background, an adult male can be heard laughing loudly at the child’s costume.
