Guns N’ Roses Invite Fans in Mexico Onstage to Bash Donald Trump Pinata
Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has always been one to speak his mind and with conviction. He's been highly critical of President-elect Donald Trump, taking to Twitter to voice his concerns and at a show in Mexico last night (Nov. 30) he proved the adage of "actions speak louder than words."
"Let's bring up some people and give them a f--king stick. I just want you to express yourself, however you feel," Rose said (via Blabbermouth) as he invited fans in attendance onstage to swing bats at a massive Donald Trump pinata. As the band stood on the side of the stage, they watched on as fans violently dismantled the oversized party favor, sending legs and arms flying. Once the pinata was down, the fans onstage then began disemboweling the Trump caricature, tossing what was inside to those in front of the barricade.
During his campaign for the Presidency, Trump came under fire for calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" and insinuated other criminal behavior. His plan to build a wall at the southern border to halt illegal immigration has been widely controversial, especially with plans to have Mexico foot the bill.
Rose recently criticized Trump's selection for attorney general, tweeting, "Good people don't listen to, acknowledge, nominate or elect people like Senator Jeff Sessions." The Alabama senator has a reputation for his harsh outlook on immigration, both legal and illegal.
The show marked the final GN'R performance of 2016 and the group will have nearly two months to rest before firing it back up, trekking to Japan for their first show of 2017. It was announced earlier today (Dec. 1) that J-pop teen metal sensation Babymetal would be serving as the support act on four of the five dates Guns have booked in Japan.
