During an interview with Billboard, Country music legend Dolly Parton shared he support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,” the 74-year-old Parton said, referring to the latest wave of racial justice protests sweeping the United States. “And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!”

Other segments of the interview detail Parton’s role during the COVID-19 pandemic, including the singer’s donation of $1 million toward coronavirus research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the release of her inspirational song “When Life Is Good Again.”

“As the Scripture says, ‘To whom much is given, much is required.’” Parton said. “So I look at my life with that every day and think that God expects it of me. … If I can be an inspiration, then I want to be that. That makes me feel good.”

The interview didn’t seem to sit well with supporters of Donald Trump. Many of them took to Twitter to express their outrage with the country star.
