With blackface costumes already making their rounds on social media, one dad found another way to be creatively offensive.

A video has surfaced of a little boy dressed up as Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, most recently back in pop culture as the subject of popular Netflix show, Narcos. Pablo is one of the most infamous kingpins of all time and the young boy’s combed-over hair and mustache are a dead giveaway. To make things worse though, the little one has a gun in one hand and a briefcase stacked with drug money in the other. The admittedly adorable video already has more than 4 million views – but some people in the comment section are outraged.

“When did we get so numb to the idea of evil and violence? Does “murdering thousands” mean nothing to you?” reads one comment. Others are taking it a little less seriously, with entertainment site Break titling the video, “Little Pablo Escobar runs the biggest fun size Snickers cartel…” on its Facebook page.

And Twitter is filled with people reposting pictures of the child alongside heart-eye emojis.

The weirdest part is that the costume is being worn by an innocent child who obviously has no idea what’s actually going on. With just three days left until Halloween, he might not be the last Pablo Escobar that (partially) enrages the internet. Stay tuned.
