Photos of young people who live there and display their material signs are not new on social networks.
Except when it is the grandson of Fidel Castro, Cuban communist leader fire.
Tony Castro, who is in his early twenties and represents his grandfather, has posted photos on his personal Instagram account showing his BMW, his meals in chic restaurants around the world and his delights aboard a yacht .
Photos obtained by El Nuevo Herald from an Instagram fan of the young Castro showed it at the Chanel fashion shows in Havana, as well as trips to the Riviera Maya and Barcelona, among other trendy places.
It’s not sitting well with Cubans on the island or exiles of southern Florida, who note that most Cubans will live on an average salary of $ 30 a month and rationed food. Incapable of anything, many Cubans move by bike or car from the 1950s.
“All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others,” wrote Pedro Pérez on his Facebook page, as reported by the Miami Herald. The commentary comes from George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” – which is banned in Cuba.
The grandson may have acquired a high-end taste of his father, Antonio, who himself has something extravagant. Antonio Castro was photographed in Mykonos, the Greek resort island, and on a yacht in Turkey, where he booked five suites in one of the most upscale hotels in the country, reported Herald.
He did not care to document his activities, and his bodyguards reportedly attacked a Turkish journalist who tried to photograph him, the Herald said.
Antonio Castro is an orthopedic surgeon and his son is considered a model – which has led some observers to think that some of the most lavish images came from photo shoots.
But critics argued that this was not the question. Many have said it was foolish – let alone anti-communist – to post pictures of such decadence as the average Cuban struggled.
José González said on Facebook that the photos of the grandson must be widely shared in Cuba.
“Just like the son of Che (Guevara), whose company leases luxury motorcycles to tourists,” said González. “Who pays for this?”
