Pro-Trump Joy Villa ordered to remove popular MAGA song; singer fights YouTube over censoring

While singer Joy Villa made a bold statement earlier this year in a MAGA dress at the Grammys,  she says her voice is now being silenced on YouTube.

The singer, who burst onto the red carpet event in February in a Donald Trump-themed dress, said her song “Make America Great Again” was taken down by YouTube.

The song, which has no references to the president, was released on the Fourth of July as a “love song for America,” Villa said. But after a few weeks on the site, the video was taken down according to a tweet by the 26 year-old.

But an hour later, Villa tweeted that she would not be silenced and posted her video to YouTube again.

She also tweeted a warning letter she received from YouTube about a complaint that had been filed, giving Villa 48 hours to edit her video or face having it removed again.

Villa countered that she had received written consent from everyone in the video.

But according to the letter, YouTube claimed “we cannot accept or review agreements granting consent before the video was uploaded.”

Villa noted that although the complaint was once “nameless,” YouTube eventually sent a time stamp with a woman’s face which apparently had violated the video-sharing site’s policy.

And while the face was blurred to comply, Villa said there seemed to be no issue with the image being used later in the video as YouTube only provided one time stamp.

“I personally shot each beautiful American in my video and received written and verbal consent from everyone, and they all knew what the project was,” Villa told The Blaze. “The video’s been up for a few weeks, yet no one said anything until now.”

Villa noted that despite a continual increase in her subscriber count, her views have dropped from about 20,000 per week to 2,000 per week and subscribers have told her they no longer see her videos in their feeds.

The singer had also pointed out that singer and fellow Trump supporter Kaya Jones had her views for her song, “What the Heart Don’t Know,” removed by YouTube, declining from 60,000 to 53,000.

Jones, a former Pussycat Dolls member, also took to Twitter to call out YouTube for censoring her views while promoting Katy Perry.

“We have joined together in fighting this censorship because we know we are the only voice pro-American artists out there, and this is not a coincidence,” Villa told TheBlaze. “Katy Perry’s video has been pushed to the top of each search for Kaya’s videos, even though Perry’s videos have nothing to do with hers.”

“YouTube is censoring Pro America artists,” she added.
