Just like us, Becky G is not here for Donald Trump's discriminatory comments about Mexicans.

The Mexican-American singer debuted her new song "We Are Mexico" Friday, tweeting, "This is for you @realDonaldTrump." In it, she starts off singing, "Hard work, double time, overtime, two jobs, working till our heads hurt, but, we ain't never late to pay the bills."

"Mother said, 'Always follow your heart, make sure you keep your head above the water,' and I promised her I always will...If you don't know, now you know. We are Mexico," she croons. "#WeAreMexico just started trending. I'm honestly almost in tears. This song means so much to me. It's for us," she tweeted that day. "When I say us I don't just mean the Latin community. I did this for everyone who came to this country for a better life." The Donald, who announced he's running for president, said, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," he said. "They're sending people that have a lot of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Becky G wasn't the only one firing back at The Donald after those scathing remarks. Four days after Univision pulled out of its business relationship with him because of his comments, NBC said it will no longer air the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which they own jointly, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Looks like this time you're fired Trump.
