The hits keep coming to Donald Trump - and he's swinging right back.

The latest response to Trump's words about Mexican immigrants comes from Miss Universe Paulina Vega, who has spoken out about her social media feud with Trump in Latina Magazine.

Reacting to Trump's declaration that Mexican immigrants are "bringing drugs" and "crime" and that they're "rapists," Vega posted her own message on Instagram condemning the words. "I strongly believe that dividing and categorizing humankind only holds it back," she wrote.

Trump responded by calling Vega a hypocrite for not giving up her Miss Universe crown.

In the magazine, the 22-year-old pageant queen explained why she felt she needed to stand up to Trump, who has seen himself dropped from Univision, NBC and Macy's, among others.

"Like I said in my statement, I'm naturally worried - not only as Miss Universe but as a Colombian and a human being - when injustices are going on," she said. "I found it necessary to act. It was a case that was directly connected to me in different aspects: legally, with my job, and emotionally, with the comments about Latinos. Everyone appreciated my statement and understood it because it was concise and to the point. I'm really happy with the result.

Vega also called Trump's labeling her a hypocrite" "the most comical thing."

"I think what I'm doing is the least hypocritical thing I can do by using my voice clearly," she added. "Speaking out does not mean I have to renounce my crown. I have a legally binding contract and legal relationship with the organization, so it's not easy for me to say, 'I'm not working for you anymore.' I have a one-year contract, so it's a much more complicated situation. But we have to understand that Trump is a very polemic person. I'm going to keep moving forward, and I refuse to let his comments affect me. Miss Universe the organization and I are much more than what that man says on Twitter."
