A Mexican piñata maker created a Donald Trump piñata after the presidential candidate's controversial remarks.

Mexican piñata maker Dalton Javier Avalos Ramirez has crafted a paper mâché model of Donald Trump after the presidential candidate made controversial comments about Mexicans.

During Trump's campaign announcement speech, he called Mexican immigrants "rapists," said they're bringing drugs and crime to the U.S. and proposed building a Berlin Wall-type wall to keep them out.

Ramirez, a craftsman from the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, told The Independent he created the piñata to mock Trump and give his fellow Mexicans a method to take out their frustrations.

"It was a way of expressing disagreement of what he said about us Mexicans," the artist said. "Donald Trump should not promote racism against Mexicans or Latinos in America."

According to Fox News Latino, the piñatas are priced at 500 pesos apiece, or roughly $40.
