Dolly Parton has caught flak in the past for not speaking out on political issues of the day.

An entire November 2019 episode of the podcast "Dolly Parton's America," called "Dollitics," focused on her ability to stay neutral because, as she said then, she has fans on all sides of the political spectrum.

In a new interview with Billboard, though, she was adamant about her feelings on protesters and the Black Lives Matter movement.
