Read Transcript Below: 0:00:00.279,0:00:03.569 Singer Joy Villa was the talk of this year's Grammys 0:00:03.570,0:00:07.770 Joy, Villa became a star overnight when she attended the Grammys and stole the show 0:00:07.770,0:00:13.170 The singer/songwriter dashingly removed her flowing white cloak as she gained more than fifty thousand Twitter followers 0:00:13.509,0:00:17.129 Overnight was overwhelmed with support and her album sales jumped over 0:00:17.800,0:00:19.680 18,000 percent no one else 0:00:19.680,0:00:24.569 But Joy Villa made the Grammys great again and album sales online 0:00:24.880,0:00:31.710 Sales have soared No longer any free thought so there's no free thinking there's no free artistry and there's no artistry 0:00:31.930,0:00:37.380 Honestly Hollywood is just rehashing the same old thing and they're patting themselves on the back about it and the Emmys was 0:00:37.600,0:00:43.290 Disgusting display a bloatedness that we saw last night. Well, I just want to make sure rich people get enough Awards from one another. 0:00:45.640,0:00:52.529 So I guess what bothers me is this is the world's window into America is the stuff that these people produce am I getting that right? 0:00:52.530,0:00:58.739 I think so. I really think internationally, they're gonna stop buying that BS too, really I think all their numbers are going down 0:00:59.020,0:01:06.449 They're tanking. People are just not buying this anymore. It's the same old story being sold, and honestly, I think 0:01:07.030,0:01:12.780 foreign talents are probably going to be rising ahead of us because they're starting to think outside the box even though they're 0:01:12.880,0:01:16.949 Supposedly have less free speech than us. We're supposed to be the country of the first amendment 0:01:16.990,0:01:22.710 But as we see in Hollywood, they no longer care about that. Man, you are the bravest. For me 0:01:22.710,0:01:25.680 I've been told you're not welcome here. It's gotta be 0:01:26.350,0:01:28.500 disheartening for you give me an example Joy 0:01:29.079,0:01:34.859 Fashion Week it was in March in Los Angeles right after the Grammys where I wore my make America great again dress 0:01:35.500,0:01:42.269 One of the organizers of Fashion Week heard I was coming. He said no not that Trump girl. She's not allowed here. Hi, everyone 0:01:42.270,0:01:49.560 I'm Joy Villa coming to you from Trump Tower in New York. What if they erected statues of prominent 0:01:50.110,0:01:55.199 African-american historical figures? That is a perfect idea. I think what we need to do instead of tearing down America 0:01:55.200,0:01:59.250 We need to build America up. We do need to focus. We need to pivot away from this 0:01:59.250,0:02:03.209 we need to stop trying to destroy things that offend us and let's put things that 0:02:03.759,0:02:07.949 Celebrate what happened and let's say yes history was bad that happened now 0:02:07.950,0:02:13.539 What can we do to celebrate people that fought against slavery that ended the civil war 0:02:13.540,0:02:17.349 Joy I think you just made my point for me I made my own point. 0:02:19.099,0:02:25.029 For having made that comment. Oh, they're gonna bash him. I mean, you can't even be slightly pro-Trump in those circles 0:02:25.030,0:02:26.269 I know in Hollywood 0:02:26.269,0:02:30.339 It's you hate Trump and you're with the group if you say well let's give him a chance 0:02:30.349,0:02:33.789 They shun you so he may lose some jobs. Sales for her album 0:02:34.549,0:02:40.749 Rocketing to number one on iTunes and Amazon better seller than both Lady Gaga and Beyoncé 0:02:41.239,0:02:44.168 it would be very brazen and very bold but 0:02:44.719,0:02:45.980 my 0:02:45.980,0:02:53.799 internal beliefs are about love and unifying for the country and unifying under our president and for me I voted for Trump and 0:02:54.019,0:02:58.388 A lot of my friends did as well and we felt like we had to be closeted 0:02:58.389,0:03:01.749 We had to be quiet about it or we would face a backlash 0:03:01.750,0:03:05.319 I decided that you know, I really want to be an activist for the things 0:03:05.319,0:03:09.279 I hold dear and I am proudly pro-life and a woman of color 0:03:09.709,0:03:13.959 Conservative woman who is sharing my beliefs and what my value system it 0:03:13.959,0:03:20.078 I had given a child up for adoption ten years ago, and that's why I'm pro-life. It's a struggle to have to identify 0:03:20.599,0:03:24.608 So much as black and it's such an identity thing. It's like you have to hold on to it 0:03:24.609,0:03:30.999 so strongly I'm black and I'm this and I see it from a lot of light-skinned black people a lot of mixed people that they 0:03:31.549,0:03:38.258 Favor their black side more. Yeah, because otherwise they get ostracized and for me, I've always been myself. I'm mixed-race 0:03:38.290,0:03:42.849 I mean, I'm American. It's not a big deal the identity politics. I'm a conservative 0:03:43.069,0:03:45.789 So love me for my values not for the way. I look 0:03:48.739,0:03:56.319 Your support for the presidents and what that has gotten you from Hollywood did you watch the Emmys I watch the Emmys 0:03:56.870,0:03:59.259 Unfortunately only because I know everyone's gonna ask me about it 0:03:59.259,0:04:05.139 It's a bunch of Hollywood elitist talking about Hollywood elitist talking about how great Hollywood elitist on 0:04:06.229,0:04:09.339 Our sister network fox news channel that you're thinking of running for office 0:04:09.439,0:04:09.939 joy 0:04:09.939,0:04:12.728 Right the president even gave you his blessings 0:04:12.919,0:04:17.978 Tweeting this good luck to Joy via on her decision to enter the wonderful world of politics 0:04:18.739,0:04:23.829 What about your potential bid for Congress? I'm really looking at making a difference for the American people 0:04:23.830,0:04:27.609 I really think that if I were to run I'd want to win and I'd want to do it on a 0:04:27.740,0:04:32.710 Populist message the same message that the president has and that's sovereignty back to the people 0:04:32.990,0:04:39.550 Lowering taxes giving small businesses and families a chance to thrive again because this is I'm sick of the Hollywood elitist 0:04:39.730,0:04:45.399 Running our country. Do you have any advice but you got across the country. What do people really really care about? 0:04:45.920,0:04:50.529 People care about you know, they want legal immigration not illegal immigration 0:04:50.530,0:04:55.299 They want to stop the illegals from coming in from bringing drugs from draining resources 0:04:55.300,0:04:59.380 They want to be given tax breaks for small businesses. They want to be able to 0:04:59.900,0:05:02.200 You know help their families with good education 0:05:02.720,0:05:07.809 Just sort of down home values that I was raised on that. I feel like are not here anymore 0:05:08.050,0:05:12.850 But it seems like joy you might be able to affect change outside of Washington rather than inside 0:05:13.010,0:05:17.920 Washington on those things that you're talking about, that's a good point. You know, I look at that. I'm looking at different things 0:05:17.920,0:05:21.909 I'm still gonna be an entertainer still doing music. I'm my second album coming out 0:05:22.130,0:05:22.990 so for me 0:05:22.990,0:05:25.930 I want to affect the most change that I can and 0:05:26.090,0:05:32.260 Bring that message to the most people that I can and and help people and help Americans if it's more on the outside 0:05:32.260,0:05:36.159 Then that's what I'll do, you know what gets me upset is that Congress is not getting anything done 0:05:36.200,0:05:40.839 Now we have a Republican majority in the Senate in the house and we have a Republican president 0:05:41.150,0:05:45.820 But for some reason things are moving at a very very slow speed 0:05:45.820,0:05:51.730 I mean just like Hollywood where I come from the artist industry is filled. It's rife with sexual allegations 0:05:51.980,0:05:54.789 In fact, I'm an independent artist. I make my own money 0:05:54.790,0:06:01.299 I'm not bought and paid for continue to deliver on his promise to make America great again 0:06:01.490,0:06:04.750 I'm Joy Villa and that is the real news
Original Article for NEWSWEEK by Dory Jackson
Singer Joy Villa slammed the growing ban of conservative radio personality Alex Jones amid YouTube's decision to pull his channel from its website Monday. His channel was removed for being in violation of YouTube's Community Guidelines.
Villa notably made headlines for wearing a "Make America Great Again" dress in support of President Donald Trump to the Grammy's in February 2017. On Monday, she stood by the far-right radio host amid his ban. "WHAT?!?!! Over a billion views, millions of subscribers and nothing R rated AT ALL yet they get quietly and quickly taken off while we slept," Monday with a quote tweet that featured his now-defunct YouTube page. "This is NOT OK. If you don't think you’re next, you’re fooling yourself."
YouTube's Community Guidelines lists multiple reasons that can lead to a channel's termination. The website prohibits content that contains nudity or sexual content, harmful or dangerous content, hateful content, violent or graphic content, cyberbullying and harassment, threats, spam, misleading metadata, scams, impersonation, privacy purposes or it tampers with the safety of children.
"All users agree to comply with our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines when they sign up to use YouTube," a YouTube spokesperson confirmed to Newsweek. "When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts."

Facebook pulled Jones's content from its website on Monday as well. Like YouTube, the company claimed it violated its community's standards. "We believe in giving people a voice, but we also want everyone using Facebook to feel safe," Facebook wrote via its newsroom Monday. "It's why we have Community Standards and remove anything that violates them, including hate speech that attacks or dehumanizes others. Earlier today, we removed four Pages belonging to Alex Jones for repeatedly posting content over the past several days that breaks those Community Standards."
Spotify, Apple and Stitcher joined YouTube and Facebook in disassociating with Jones. Apple, however, was the first to pull Jones's content. In a statement to BuzzFeed News on Sunday, Apple stated: "Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users."
Jones addressed the situation on Monday. "We've been banned completely on Facebook, Apple, & Spotify," Jones, 44, tweeted. "What conservative news outlet will be next?"
The Infowars host said his content will "always" be available via the show's official website, adding: "Spread the links to help #Infowars fight #Censorship."
My statement for the 60th Grammys is Choose Life. I believe in loving the child and the mother, and I am proudly Pro Life, without any judgment to those to choose otherwise.
Why did I wear a baby image surrounded by a brightly colored womb on my dress and a purse with “Choose Life” to the 60th Grammy Awards?
