Let the Donald Trump bashing begin – Mexican artisan launches piñata

Mexico City (AP) - After Donald Trump's Mexico-bashing comments this week, Mexicans are engaging in a little Trump-bashing of their own.

Artisan Dalton Avalos Ramirez has launched a Trump piñata, featuring The Donald's inimitable hairstyle and a big, big mouth.

The papier-mache figure will come in a variety of sizes. The first was on display Friday at the Pinatas Ramirez store in the border city of Reynosa.

Avalos Ramirez says he created it "because of the hatred Trump expressed for the Mexican people".

He said "people want to burn the pinatas, they want to break them".

During his presidential campaign kickoff speech Tuesday, Trump accused Mexican immigrants of bringing drugs, crime and rapists to the US.

It isn't the first piñata the Ramirez store has made of a controversial figure. Avalos Ramirez said he made Miley Cyrus models after the singer used a Mexican flag against her buttocks prosthesis during a show in 2014.

Previous piñata-worthy figures included Kim Kardashian and Dutch soccer player Arjen Robben, who knocked Mexico out of the 2014 World Cup on a questioned penalty.
