Whoopi Goldberg, Others Defends Dolly Parton’s Cheerleader Costume Amidst Backlash

Veteran superstar Dolly Parton has been the target of criticism ever since she appeared in a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader outfit during last week’s Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign halftime show. Critics slammed Dolly’s choice of clothing, suggesting it wasn’t age-appropriate. But, Stella, the singer’s sister, and Whoopi Goldberg have defended her in subsequent clapbacks. Stella responded to the criticism on Twitter X by writing,

“I personally thought my big sister Dolly was cute as hell in her Dallas Cowboys cheerleading costume at the half time show on Thanksgiving. To those of you being so critical of a 77 year old kicking up her heels, I say f*ck yourself. Shame on you not her.”

On the November 27 episode of The View, Whoopi discussed her thoughts on the subject and made a joke about how her personal social media frenzy about her gloveless Thanksgiving turkey preparations wasn’t “the only thing online that people were hating.”

“Apparently, my turkey wasn’t the only thing online that people were hating,”

“77-year-old superstar Dolly Parton stole the show on Thanksgiving at the Cowboys-Commanders game dressed as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, but some critics told her to act her age.”

She then remarked, staring straight into the camera,

“Bite me!” “Everybody that participated in this—you should be ashamed of yourself,”

Whoopi’s remarks clearly garnered overwhelming approval from her other The View cohosts. In a press release, Dolly, who just released her 49th solo album Rockstar—which ended up being her highest-charting album on the Billboard 200 charts—spoke about how it was “an honor” to work with The Salvation Army to perform at the halftime show.Whoopi Goldberg, Others Defends Dolly Parton'S Cheerleader Costume Amidst Backlash, Yours Truly, News, June 13, 2024
