His father President Maduro and his wife Cilia Flores had been accused of nepotism, allegedly placing family members in positions throughout the Venezuelan government. His appointments as Head of Corps of Special Inspectors of the Presidency of the Republic and Coordinator of National Film School of Venezuela by his father, President Maduro, was criticized as being an example of his family's acts of alleged nepotism. Filmmakers and individuals in entertainment scoffed at the idea of Maduro Guerra being the Coordinator of National Film School of Venezuela with filmmaker Jonathan Jakubowicz stating that Maduro Guerra would teach student how to make "torture films, propaganda films, Bolivarian soft porn, silent movies".

At the wedding of Jose Zalt, a Syrian-Venezuelan businessman that owns the clothing brand Wintex, on 14 March 2015, Maduro Guerra was seen being showered with American dollars at the gathering in the luxurious Gran Melia Hotel in Caracas. The incident caused outrage among Venezuelans who believed this to be hypocritical of President Maduro, especially since many Venezuelans were experiencing hardships due to the poor state of the economy and due to the president's public denouncements of capitalism. During a PSUV National Congress, Maduro Guerra responded to the incident only calling it "gossip".
