This famous character was removed from Money Heist for being misogynist and narcissist

Netflix’s Spanish series Money Heist has appealed to the audience globally and has become the most popular non-English show on the online streaming service. However, fans got disappointed when they witnessed the death of one of the most popular characters of Money Heist in season 4 — Berlin (Pedro Alonso) who was a major part of the heist. Soon after Berlin’s, fans went haywire and posted their disappointed on social media.

After keeping his mouth shut on the departure of character Berlin from Money Heist, writer Álex Pina has finally revealed why he actually decided to cut the famous character from the series. In the recent Netflix documentary Money Heist: The Phenomenon, Pina revealed that he was under pressure to omit the character because of his misogynistic views.

Letting fans know about the departure of Berlin, Pina revealed that someone once said to him that the character doesn’t fit in his show with present times as the character has very outdated views when it comes to women which are not on the same page with present thinking of viewers and this might attract negative publicity to show.

Pina said, “I said I had no intention of taking him out of the series. He’s a misogynist, narcissist and psychopath in many ways. But we could have a character like that in the series and the audience could freely decide whose side they’re on, right?”

However, Pina is still bamboozled by the popularity of the character as he didn’t expect him to be so popular among the fans. For those who like Berlin in Money Heist, Pina said that they should get their heads checked as Berlin is not the type of character people had given the hands of their daughter to spend the rest of life.

Who is Berlin in Money Heist?

Berlin, or Andrés de Fonollosa, was El Professor’s brother in the show and is one of the criminal masterminds behind the original heist. He played the role of captain in Money Heist Season 1 and Season 2 that deals with printing money in Royal Mint of Spain. He sacrificed his life in Money Heist season 2 while stopping the police in order to give extra time to his team to escape and complete the heist. However, due to the popularity of his character, he was brought back in Money Heist season 3 and season 4 in flashbacks where he is shown devising the plan of even bigger heist of Bank of Spain. Hopefully, fans will get to see him in upcoming Money Heist season 5 through flashbacks.
