Princess Joy Villa is showing her support for President Donald Trump – and fans are not happy about it.

The 25-year-old "Vagabonds" singer walked the red carpet at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, rocking a floor-length dress that caused quite a stir.

She was all smiles as she posed for photographs in the controversial dress, which she styled with a white flower headpiece, dangly earrings and a heart –shaped clutch.

Villa -- who was not nominated for an award but is known for making red carpet statements, like the barely-there cut-out "dress" she wore to last year's show -- originally stepped out in a white cloak, before throwing it off to reveal the pro-Trump number. And judging by the reactions the frock received, perhaps she should have kept it on…

GRAMMY viewers quickly weighed in on the questionable look via Twitter, writing things like, "Umm, who even is this? You are a JOKE!" "Anything just to be famous," "You committed career suicide" and "That dress is hideous."

Even comedian Margaret Cho chimed in, tweeting the following messages:

Just moments before walking the red carpet, Villa took to Instagram, writing, "My whole artistic platform is about love."

“I couldn't be where I am today without the love and tenderness of those beautiful supporters and friends around me. Thank you ❤" she wrote. “" hope you enjoy tonight's @grammysawards2017 and remember to forget your problems and focus on your future! You are infinite and beautiful and no one can stop you but you. 💋So go out and celebrate yourself as a winner no matter what, together with those you adore."
