The Guns N’ Roses frontman who sings “Out Ta Get Me” was out to get Donald Trump on Wednesday night in Mexico City.

Singer Axl Rose, Slash, and the rest of the classic rock band Guns N’ Roses brought their 2016 tour to a close by encouraging Mexicans to jump on stage and beat a giant pinata of America’s president-elect.

“Let’s bring up some people and give them a f–king stick,” Mr. Rose said in video provided to the entertainment website TMZ. “I just want you to express yourself, however you feel … You gotta hit him in the head! There we go.”

Members of the crowd chanted an anti-homosexual slur as the pinata was destroyed.

Mr. Trump vowed during his campaign to get tough on illegal immigration, beef up the U.S. Border Patrol’s resources, and build a wall to secure the southern border.

“To fix our immigration system, we must change our leadership in Washington and we must change it quickly,” Mr. Trump told an audience in Phoenix on Aug. 31. “Sadly, there is no other way. The truth is our immigration system is worse than anybody ever realized. But the facts aren’t known because the media won’t report on them. The politicians won’t talk about them and the special interests spend a lot of money trying to cover them up because they are making an absolute fortune. That’s the way it is.”

“Countless innocent American lives have been stolen because our politicians have failed in their duty to secure our borders and enforce our laws like they have to be enforced. I have met with many of the great parents who lost their children to sanctuary cities and open borders … Countless Americans who have died in recent years would be alive today if not for the open border policies of this administration and the administration that causes this horrible, horrible thought process, called Hillary Clinton.”

Guns N’ Roses will resume touring in 2017 with a Jan. 21 performance in Osaka, Japan.
