Dolly Parton Is Facing a Boycott for Collaborating with Kid Rock
Dolly Parton’s rock album is coming this fall, and the list of featured artists is insane. But now some fans who were planning to buy it say they WON’T be. And it all stems from everyone’s favorite topic . . . Bud Light.
In case you’ve been living under a rock: People started boycotting Bud Light last month after they partnered with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
One of the things that kickstarted it was Kid Rock’s video where he shot up a bunch of cases of Bud Light with an assault rifle.
And now because he helped start it, people are threatening to boycott DOLLY for featuring him on one of her new rock songs. He’s on a song called “Either Or”. And some Dolly fans say they won’t buy the album unless she drops that song.
Dolly’s been a vocal supporter of LGBT rights for years, and Kid Rock has decisively NOT been. So, a lot of people just don’t get why she put him on her album in the first place.
The LGBT magazine “The Advocate” posted a big op-ed calling it a “slap in the face.” They say having him on there makes it seem like she’s okay with his views.
“The implication is ‘Oh, he must be a good person if Dolly chooses him along with all these other luminaries.’”
They also took issue with him being thought of as a huge rock star in general.
Quote, “Many of these musicians [on her album] are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but not Kid Rock. He’s in the WWE Hall of Fame.”
