You can say this much about the Village People’s Victor Willis: he doesn’t mince words.
In an eventful 24 hours, the singer, who already has had some choice words for President Trump after telling him to stop using their “Macho Man” before his rallies, mocked the Republican National Convention in a Facebook post after it played “Y.M.C.A.” after officially tapping Trump as its 2020 nominee for president.

But in a bit more positive news, Willis also said on Facebook that the Village People are getting a biopic — or are at least far down that road.
“You heard it here first. A Village People biopic is in the works (serious negotiation stage). The first real Village People motion picture! The biggie are the music rights.
