A quick note here, Villa did not use the term Brown Shirts, those are my words, not Villa’s. Regardless, a big salute to Villa for standing up to the “suppressors”
Speaking in a Breitbart News interview, Joy Villa, the singer who wore a news-making pro-Trump dress at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, said she was motivated by the drive to change Hollywood’s “suppressive atmosphere” toward Trump supporters.
Saying you support Trump “should not be something that is almost illegal in this society,” Villa said. “And that’s what it felt like. It felt like a suppressive atmosphere,” she said, referring to Hollywood.
“I was tired of the bullying,” she said in a phone interview. “I was tired of being pushed down so that I couldn’t say my beliefs. And being fearful of losing sales. Losing fans. Losing bookings. Losing contracts and sponsorship. You know, that’s my day to day. And a lot of my friends have the same thing. And we live in Hollywood, which is supposed to be the most open viewpoint city. But the truth is there was a lot of hate and a lot of negativity and I wanted to change the storyline to love and support and unity as an American.”
