Dolly Parton: ‘Of course black lives matter!’

US country music star Dolly Parton has come out in support of Black Lives Matter, in a rare comment on politics.
She told Billboard Magazine: “Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!”
With a broad fan base that spans the right and the left, the singer generally eschews political subjects.
Her comments come amid a nationwide reckoning on race that has impacted all of US society, including country music.
Although Ms Parton has not attended Black Lives Matter marches, she said she supported anti-racism activists’ right to protest.
