Singer Joy Villa has once again decided to make a political statement at the Grammy Awards, showing up at this year’s ceremony in a dress calling for the support of a border wall.

Villa, who is a supporter of President Donald Trump, wore a white dress with a brick print that featured the words “Build the Wall” on the back. On each strap of her dress, there was a ball of metal shaped like barbed wire. The singer also carried a red purse that read “Make America Great Again.”

“I don’t care what anyone thinks. I 100% support the wall & our President @realDonaldTrump. Do you want more drugs brought in?” she wrote on Sunday.

In 2017, Villa showed up wearing a dress that featured the words “Make America Great Again,” a slogan Trump used during his 2016 campaign. Last year, the singer wore a white dress that depicted an unborn baby in the womb and a purse that read, “Choose life.”

Social media users criticized Villa for her support of Trump, and many people wondered who she was.

“I’m crying because she does this every year and every year we collectively scream “WHO?!” wrote Twitter user @natural_OneDurr.

“Just a thought… If Joy Villa had more singing talent then she wouldn’t need attention each year but posing in racist dresses,” comedian Tony Posnanski wrote on Twitter.
