Donald Trump may be making an appearance at many upcoming kids’ birthday parties. The presidential hopeful’s likeness has been turned into a piñata (signature hairstyle and all) by artist Dalton Avalos Ramirez in Reynosa, Mexico. 

Ramirez told the Associated Press that he created the piñata “because of the hatred Trump expressed for the Mexican people.”

The “hatred” Ramirez is referring to came last month when Trump, 69, announced he would be running for President of the United States in 2016. At the time, the businessman and mogul said, “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Following the backlash his comments incited, Trump exclusively spoke to Us Weekly, refusing to back down.

“There is nothing to apologize for,” Trump said. “Everything that I said is correct. People are flowing through the borders and we have no idea who they are, where they’re coming from. They’re not only from Mexico, they’re coming from all over South America and the world.” 

The comments didn’t just upset the people of Mexico. Trump was fired by NBC, which airs both the Miss America pageant and his show Celebrity Apprentice. Univision will no longer air the Miss America pageant, and Roselyn Sanchez and Cristian de la Fuente have stepped down as co-hosts of the Spanish simulcast, as have American hosts Cheryl Burke and Thomas Roberts. Trump’s menswear line was also dropped by Macy’s.

In a direct reference to the Miss America pageant, Ramirez decorated one of the Trump piñatas with a crown and a sash that reads “Miss Stupid.” 

“People want to burn the piñatas, they want to break them,” the artist told the AP. 

This isn’t the only celebrity piñata Ramirez has made. He’s also created the stars of The Avengers, Caitlyn Jenner, and the Simpsons family. 

Trump filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision for breach of contract after the company’s decision to pull out of airing the Miss USA pageant.
