Joy Villa is Actively Being Censored By YouTube

Singer songwriter Joy Villa (the MAGA dress lady) is making the rounds on right wing and free speech circuits due to active censorship of one of her songs by YouTube.

She tweeted on Saturday 26 August 2017:

YouTube’s methods of censorship through view count and comment manipulation are explained in this five minute, 27 March 2017 video entitled A Tale Of Two Accounts by Mister Metokur.

A few hours later, Joy tweeted that she reuploaded the video.

She continues to reach out, and her story is passing through the fast-responding channels like The Independent Journal Review (Joy Villa Is Given 48 Hours to Remove ‘Make America Great Again’ Song for Violating YouTube Standards, 26 August 2017), TheBlaze (YouTube targets multiple pro-Trump musical artists, 26 August 2017) before moving on to Fox News (Joy Villa: YouTube Took Down My ‘Make America Great Again’ Song, 28 August 2017)

I like Joy. I’m biased towards women who commit to red lips and she could easily be out selling her back workout routine instead of records.

We’ll be seeing her carry the mid-week human interest on conservative sites and if YouTube doubles down and deletes her re-upload (and if she continues to earn Amazon sales), there’s a good change this’ll carry into next weekend.
