Dolly Gives Stern Comment
On Wednesday, May 14, Dolly Parton expressed outrage over the airing of a segment on the radio program The Howard Stern Show where her speaking voice was electronically manipulated to create racist and vulgar comments.
Dolly issued the following statement. “I have never been so shocked, hurt and humiliated in all my life. I cannot believe what Howard Stern has done to me. In a blue million years, I would never have such vulgar things come out of my mouth. They have done editing or some sort of trickery to make this horrible, horrible thing. Please accept my apology for them and certainly know I had nothing to do with this. If there was ever going to be a lawsuit, it’s going to be over this. Just wanted you to know that I am completely devastated by this.” Stern’s national show airs over Howard 100, a Sirius Satellite Radio station.
