A topless protester stormed the unveiling ceremony of a life-size statue of Donald Trump in Madrid on Tuesday. As she pushed through security and made her way to grab the wax figure’s crotch, she screamed, “Grab the patriarchy by the balls” numerous times.

The feminist group FEMEN, which believes in activism through bare breasts, took credit for the protest.

The group’s action refers to Trump’s infamous pussy-grabbing comments that surfaced just a month before the election. This summer, people in cities across America were given the opportunity to ogle naked statues of the then-presidential nominee—however, that Trump didn’t have any balls to grab.

The Madrid protester was eventually escorted out of Museo de Cera, the city’s wax museum, which was none too happy about how the ceremony went down. Gonzalo Presa, the museum’s head of communications, told Reuters he had hoped to give a “special welcome” to Trump from Madrid. “If they want to do this they should do it directly to him,” he said. “This is too easy.”
