Guns N' Roses fans whack a Donald Trump pinata on stage in Mexico

Guns N’ Roses stopped playing during their concert in Mexico City to invite fans in the crowd to let their feelings out about a certain politician.

The group brought a Donald Trump-shaped pinata on stage, which crowd-goers were then invited to beat with sticks.

“Let’s bring up some people and give them a f**king stick,” lead singer Axl Rose said. “Express yourselves however you feel.”

And there goes a leg…To cheers from the crowd, fans were hauled up on stage and completely destroyed body parts of the pinata. Yep, it looks like they really went for it.

Oh, and are you wondering what was inside the Trump-like pinata? Well, turns out there wasn’t the usual sweet treats, but a pile of t-shirts which were then thrown to fans.

You probably don’t need us to remind you why the president-elect is so unpopular in Mexico, but, just in case – it’s largely due to him citing the country as a source of rapists and criminals travelling to the US back at the start of his campaign.

He has also vowed to remove millions of people living in the US illegally, warning that failure to do so would jeopardise the “wellbeing of the American people”. Oh, and there’s the whole wall thing.

Meanwhile, since their show in Mexico, Guns N’ Roses have announced that they will play Slane Castle, Ireland, on May 27 next year.

The group will visit the Co Meath venue as part of their Not In This Lifetime tour. It’s the first time they’ve played in Ireland for 25 years.
