Jenni Rivera Piñatas Cause Controversy

There’s a ton of controversy surrounding piñatas fashioned after Jenni Rivera. According to Voxxi, papier-mâché figures sporting the late Mexican American singer have angered some fans, including some of her family members.

Roberto Martínez, the maker of the so-called “Diva piñatas,” spoke about his creations in an interview with Univision’s show El Gordo y la Flaca.

Martínez, who lives in California, said he began creating the piñatas after receiving loads of requests from fans who wanted to remember the singer. He added that fans are willing to pay from $200 to $300 for a piñata.

According to the Latin Times, Martínez said that everything he does is with respect, and that his piñata creations are an art.
