A piñata maker out of Minneapolis is apologizing for leaving black piñata figures that he made out on his front porch, according to KFGO.
The piñatas were made for a multicultural wedding according to Victor Chavarria the owner. He says that he hung them on his porch to dry after painting them. He didn’t realize the message that the figures hanging were sending.
People were outraged as a photo of the figured hanging went viral on Facebook. Worried about the potential backlash, Chavarria called the police and asked for extra patrol officers.
An immigrant from Mexico, Chavarria is trying to start his own piñata business from his home in Minneapolis. He’s stated that he will no longer put his piñatas out to dry on his porch. The wedding order for the piñatas has been canceled.
