Selena followers became enraged right after a photograph of a gentleman putting a MAGA hat on the statue of the beloved singer in Texas went viral about the past week.
Perez, the operator of a President Trump memorabilia store, can be noticed in the picture wearing a Trump shirt and positioning a MAGA hat atop the statue’s head.
The monument was erected in 1997 on Corpus Christi Bay, two several years immediately after the 23-yr-aged singer was murdered at the palms of her assistant in 1995.
“Hispanic Republican? Yep, and they’re speaking up,” reads the caption of Corpus Cristí Crónicas put up.
“Joe Michael Perez locations a Donald Trump ‘Keep The usa Great’ hat on the Selena Quintanilla statute in downtown Corpus Christi in way to express the symbolic Latino assist for President Donald Trump.”
It provides: “As for the immigration critics, Joe Michael Perez claims ‘do it the correct way.’”
The article has produced hundreds of irate feedback and “angry face” emoji reactions from displeased fans of the late singer on Facebook, who accused Perez of using the statue as a political prop.
“Selena would have hardly ever supported Trump, his administration, or anything that arrives out of his idiotic mouth,” wrote Anela Woolsey-Jackson.
“I consider he is a disrespectful fool,” Abraham Quintanilla, Selena’s father, informed the Houston Chronicle in reaction to the picture of Perez. “Selena was never included with politics.”
