Some people in Mexico want to smash Donald Trump — a piñata version of him at least.

An artist in Reynosa, Mexico, created a piñata that resembles Donald Trump, complete with his signature hairstyle.

Dalton Avalos Ramirez told the Associated Press he designed the piñata “because of the hatred Trump expressed for the Mexican people.”

Trump made comments that Mexicans were bringing “drugs, crime and rapists” to the United States in a June 16 speech kicking off his 2016 presidential campaign.

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

The Piñateria Ramirez also has a version of the Trump piñata showing Trump wearing a crown and pageant sash emblazoned “Miss Stupid,” a nod toward Univision and NBC dropping coverage of the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants after Trump’s comments on Mexicans.

Trump filed a $500 million breach-of-contract lawsuit against Univision yesterday after their decision.

Ramirez — who did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment — told the AP this popular piñata is flying off his shelves.

He also sells piñatas in the likeness of Caitlyn Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears.
