Dolly Parton has legions of fans around the world, and she wanted to make sure they heard an important message.
Reports have been spreading around the internet that the 77-year-old superstar endorses Keto oils and CBD gummies that promise to prevent dementia. The ads feature realistic-looking reports and photos of Dolly claiming that she went on television to publicly endorse the products. Snopes fact-checked the claims and posted an article addressing the topic, calling the "allegations" against Dolly "false," "spammy," and "completely fictional."
Dolly herself spoke out about the claims and shared a message with her fans on Instagram. And she included a bit of her trademark humor in the statement.
Dolly's message says, "Dolly Parton is not affiliated with, has not endorsed and is not associated with any keto or CBD gummy product. She's more the cake, cookie, and cornbread type. —Team Dolly"
Fans flooded Dolly's comments section with supportive messages, like, "Who is after our queen 😭?," "This is the most drama Dolly ever will get involved with 💅," and "I don’t know what’s going on, but I’ll throw hands." Gwen Stefani chimed in with, "I love u gx"
Dolly is far from the first celebrity to face these types of false claims. According to Snopes, Blake Shelton, Reba McIntire, Tom Selleck, Ree Drummond, and Keanu Reeves have all experienced similar false reports.
Take this as another reminder to be careful about what you read on the Internet! And, when in doubt, listen to Dolly.
