Singers Dress A Big Hit With Americans, Not So For Leftists Who Threaten Her Life
SINGER ROCKETS TO NO. 1, SALES JUMP 18 MILLION PERCENT WITH PRO-TRUMP STANCE
But death threats also stream in: 'Attack! Kill her!'
A singer who dressed for Sunday night’s Grammy Awards in a gown that proclaimed “Make America Great Again” on the front and “Trump” on the back has seen the sales of her music skyrocket at least 18 million percent in one day.
Joy Villa’s album “I Make The Static” instantly jumped to light speed, soaring to No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes album sales chart, as well as No. 1 on Amazon’s top digital albums.
It was previously ranked on Amazon at No. 543,202 before her Grammy appearance.
The designer of the dress, Andre Soriano, a naturalized U.S. citizen who immigrated from the Philippines, is homosexual and a big fan of President Trump.
Soriano told the Hollywood Reporter he backs the new president despite the controversy over Trump’s immigration ban from several countries, explaining the message of the dress was positivity.
“There are a lot of people that are in power that really misconstrued what this country stands for,” he said. “I love this country. I’m from the Philippine islands. I am a proud American. I really love this country. I am a minority, Joy is black. America is about immigrants.”
“Thank you for your courage and your message of love and unity! So needed!” said Terry Mendozer, whose Twitter handle is Ex-Dem Latina.

Former U.S. Rep. Allen West noted: “Forget the speeches or the performances – singer Joy Villa made her arrival political by turning President Trump’s campaign slogan and logo into a dress. While she wasn’t nominated for anything, she will certainly be remembered.”
But the dress also enraged political opponents of Trump, and one Twitter user actually called for the murder of Villa.
“Attack!! Kill her!! Throw her in a camp … for adults!” @jaker1419 tweeted.
When Trump was elected president, Perry publicized her $10,000 donation to Planned Parenthood.
She wrote an essay published in Entertainment Weekly urging Americans to donate to Planned Parenthood, indicating her financial gift was in honor of “the teenage me who made several trips” to the abortion provider.
