Dolly Parton is an iconic figure of the South and if you know anything about her it’s that she doesn’t like publicly taking sides in politics. So, of course, she was upset when you 9 to 6 co-stars went on stage at the Emmys and began bashing trump with her right there in the center.
And since then, she’s taken a lot of crap from people and is getting tired of it!
“Everybody knows I don’t do politics,” the 71-year-old legendary country singer said during an interview Monday on “Fox and Friends,” noting that her mother was a Democrat and her dad was a Republican.
“I’ve got as many Republican fans as Democrats and I don’t want to make any of them mad at me,” she added. “I don’t play politics. Plus, I’m an entertainer. I don’t usually voice my opinion in a situation like that.”
“I was a little nervous, but I knew I wasn’t going to play the game,” she continued. “A lot of people got mad at me because I didn’t say something. I thought, ‘what if I had said something.’ I didn’t know what to say. I just always go to a boob joke if all else fails.”
The comment stems from a slam by Tomlin and Fonda during the “69th Primetime Emmy Awards” when the stars compared Trump to the boss character in the hit 1980s movie.
“In [9 to 5], we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot. And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” Tomlin and Fonda explained to the audience as Parton stood by.
Don’t worry, Dolly… we know what’s up. You just keep doing your thing and you’ll always have fans around these parts!
What did you think of what Dolly Parton had to say? Are you as annoyed with her co-stars as she is?
