Donald Trump may soon be coming to a quinceañera near you.

Piñatas bearing the likeness of the billionaire mogul have begun popping up in Mexico, a response to controversial comments Trump made about Mexican immigrants.

Dalton Ramirez, the artist responsible for the piñatas, said they are proving particularly popular with customers, as many want to bash Trump.

“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,” Trump said during his Presidential campaign announcement speech. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. 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.”

In response, Spanish-language broadcaster Univision announced they would no longer be partnering with the Miss USA pageant, of which Trump is a producer.

“At Univision, we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country,” the company said in a statement.

Trump subsequently sent a letter to the company’s CEO Randy Falco, banning he and his employees from appearing on Trump’s Miami properties, including Trump’s golf course in Doral, Miami.
