Two of Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s children said Thursday they were tired of seeing their father’s image used to sell everything from T-shirts to vodka, calling the growth of the revolutionary as a global super-brand “embarrassing.”
Aleida Guevara, the eldest of Guevara’s four children by his second wife, Cuban revolutionary Aleida March, said the commercialization of her father’s image contributed to tension between rich and poor in some countries.
“We don’t want money, we demand respect,” wrote [Aleida] Guevara.
This reminds me of a guy I once knew who hated the girl he wanted but couldn’t have.
We’ll see whether Aleida changes her tune once she can legally get paid royalties in Cuba, where she now lives – or in Argentina, where she procured citizenship for her children.
