Singer Pink and other celebrities are furious with a Cinco de Mayo publicity stunt at the well-known Pink Taco restaurant in Century City, California.

The eatery chained a live donkey, fully painted in pink, outside in 90-degree heat for hours to encourage patrons to party at the establishment.

The donkey had the words “Pink Taco” painted on its shaved body.

Minutes after the donkey’s photo went viral, celebrities lashed out against the restaurant and took their anger to Twitter.
