Trump Pinata

Mexicans have found a way to hit back at Donald Trump. Literally.

Reuters reports that pià±atas bearing Trump's likeness, including "a flange of blonde hair and a big mouth," have hit store shelves in Mexico and are proving popular among customers eager to protest the billionaire's recent remarks against immigrants.

Trump, who is a Republican candidate for president, drew criticism after declaring in his campaign announcement speech that Mexican migrants were bringing "drugs, crime, and rapists" to the United States. He later called his comments "100 percent correct," but insisted he was a strong supporter of Mexicans. "How can I not love people who give me many millions of dollars for apartments?" Trump said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Donald's comments prompted pià±ata maker Dalton Remirez to design an extremely bashable pià±ata bearing Trump's visage. The candy-filled sculpture retails for about $40, and Ramirez says it has been flying off shelves. "This pià±ata especially is the one everyone wants to break," the artist told Reuters.
