Singer Joy Villa says she's received "hatred" and "racism" for wearing MAGA dress to the Grammys.

The 27-year-old singer and songwriter, known by her stage name Princess Joy Villa, issued a message of support to the political figure Donald Trump, by wearing a dress which depicted a wall. She also had the words "Make America Great Again" - Trump's campaign slogan - inscribed on both her purse and the back of the gown. As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, she wore an off-the-shoulder silver cape that mimicked steel, under which she donned a white deep-neck gown designed by Desi Lee Allinger-Nelson of Desi Designs Couture that featured a brick-like pattern.

"Well to no surprise, I'm still a Trump supporter and supporting the president and what he's doing", she said. "But the rebel in me was like, 'I have to come out and support the president'". Ricky Rebel, a gay singer who backs LGBTQ rights and Trump, wore a blue jacket that read "Keep America Great Again" and "2020".

"Well, I'm Ricky Rebel, I have a new album called "The New Alpha" so I wanted to wear something that represented what an alpha is and who an alpha is and I am the new alpha", Rebel told the news outlet. In 2017, Villa hit the prestigious music ceremony in a blue gown designed by Andre Soriano that featured "Make America Great Again" and "Trump" on it. I 100% support the wall & our President @realDonaldTrump.

On Sunday, Villa actively promoted her wall-inspired dress and its message in interviews and on social media, often parroting misleading statistics about illegal immigration that have been repeatedly voiced by Trump and his supporters.

Last year, Villa, who gave up a child for adoption, opted to make a pro-life statement with her gown.

"I voted for the person who wanted to heavily vet refugees".

"I grew up in theater, so I've always used costume as a way to express myself", Villa said.
