Dolly Parton is known to keep her political views to herself. She refrains herself from giving statements on hot and heated topics and generally stays out of trouble. But, it seems like that otherwise careful Dolly Parton has finally decided to shed her apolitical views and stand for BLM. During an interview with Billboard, she strong supported Black Lives Matter movement.
She said that the understands that every individual wants to be seen and known. It is not just white people that matters, obviously black lives matter! Dolly in her vast career has never been known to give such direct statements. She has refrained from hurting feelings of any of her fan. However, she realizes that BLM is more than just ‘hurting someone’s sentiments’.
Dolly Parton has not taken part in any BLM rallies or protest but made sure to get her voice heard loud and clear. She says that ‘the good christian’ people do not get the right to judge other people. Only God should judge others and she lets everyone live without any judgements.
Dolly has a pure soul and she proves that time and time again. When fans pointed out that the word ‘Dixie’ in her theme park Dollywood is offensive, she immediately dropped the name. Dolly says that you have to dumb to continue to do something that hurts others. She says that it was just a business, so if it hurts other, it will just be called ‘The Stampede’ and not ‘Dixie Stampede’.
