Topless protester grabs ‘Trump’ by the balls

A topless protester disrupted the unveiling of a Donald Trump waxwork today by grabbing him by the balls.

The eerie-looking figure, complete with unconvincing fake hair, is set to become President of the United States on Friday.

Ahead of his inauguration a waxwork of the billionaire was unveiled in front of the world’s press at Madrid’s Wax Museum.

However the launch was disrupted when a topless protester vaulted the security ropes, dodging past museum staff and grabbing the fake Trump by the balls.

The woman, a protester from feminist and queer activist group FEMEN, chanted “grab patriarchy by the balls”, while a message painted across her chest read “GRAB BACK”.

Staff spent several minutes trying to restrain her, with one visibly-embarrassed security guard trying to conceal her bare breasts with a jacket.

The stunt was a reference to Trump’s infamous leaked comments suggesting he enjoys sexually assaulting women.

He said: “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy… you can do anything.”

The group tweeted: “We just grabbed him back.. Grab patriarchy by the balls!”

The all-female activist group are notorious for their topless protests across Europe, staging topless stunts previously to campaign for LGBT rights.

The group came under fire in 2015 for a topless gay kiss inside a mosque in Morocco.

The women were arrested and barred from returning to the country.

Same-sex sexual activity is a crime in Morocco, with a maximum possible sentence of 3 years.
