Grab ‘em by the wax.
A topless feminist protester in Spain attacked a life-size wax statue of President-elect Donald Trump presented at Madrid’s Wax Museum on Tuesday while screaming “grab patriarchy by the balls.”
The woman, who had the same message written on her bare back, reportedly pushed past security to access the figure on display, according to a Reuters reporter at the scene.
The activist from the feminist group FEMEN grabbed the crotch of the wax figure, likely in reference to Trump’s hot mic comments to Billy Bush where he said he liked to grab women “by the p—y.”
“FEMEN just grabbed Trump’s statue by the balls in Madrid,” the group tweeted.
The protester’s chest was also marked with the words, “Grab Back.”
Head of communications at the Museo de Cera, Gonzalo Presa, said the protest was “unpleasant” and that the country was trying to give Trump a warm welcome ahead of his inauguration.
Madame Tussauds Wax Museums in New York, Washington, D.C., Orlando and London also unveiled Trump statues on Tuesday.

“If they want to do this they should do it directly to him,” he said. “This is too easy.”
Security eventually removed the woman from the museum.
Madrid’s Wax Museum is separate from Madame Tussauds, but Tussauds in New York, Washington, D.C., Orlando, and London each unveiled Trump statues on Tuesday.
“The tradition of immortalizing every new president is time-honored at Tussauds,” Tussauds said in a statement. “And what better time to launch Donald Trump’s new figure than now, with less than two days before Friday’s Inauguration events.”
