Good on Joy Villa (the African-American, Native American Indian and Italian – for the identity brigade) for using the most topical debate in recent times to her advantage. I have written in previous posts that celebrities should thank Trump for the huge bump he gives their social media exposure when they rant at him. Joy Villa took the opposite point of view and saw her single sales skyrocket from 542,000-odd to 3rd on the charts. For all the political persuasion that celebrities think they have, people admire those who have the guts to take a stand. She wrote on her Instagram:
“Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree. See the person over the politics, carry yourself with dignity, always. Life is made to be lived, so go boldly and give no effs! 😊❤️😘😱💋🏆⭐️💥✨ #love #peace #joyvillagrammys #joyvilla #maga #grammys2017 #style #supportamerica #”
Meryl Streep is now criticizing ‘brownshirts’ (aka Trump supporters) that are taking umbrage to her comments when all they are doing is saying that she don’t speak for them. At the Golden Globes, Streep said, “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. If you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.” I see that Jason Statham and Daniel Craig have been deported for their potential risk of violence as shown in their movies. Maybe they should deport Arnold Schwarzenegger due to his Austrian roots.
Once again, like small business confidence, the silent ranks of Trump supporters runs far deeper than the minority of whining liberals.
