A disgraceful name for Aspen nightclub

I just came back from my lunch break where I usually check Twitter and was baffled to see a comment from one of our Colombian reporters mentioning there was a joint (no pun intended) called Escobar Aspen representing Pablo Escobar, which you all very well know who this disgraceful person/animal was.

Does the owner not understand the pain he caused? How he terrorized my whole country by assassinating, kidnapping, drug-dealing, blowing up an aircraft (two Americans on board), and raping several young women and having them killed? Do we have to relive this demon?

He might as well open up another down the street called Hitler Aspen or bin Laden Aspen. How dare he or she try to make money off of so much pain and suffering. May his business go bankrupt.
