Dolly Parton had the best response to rumors that she was selling CBD gummies.
The country music legend addressed these claims on her official social media accounts Wednesday, denying the gossip with her signature brand of wit and humor.
“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,” the post said. It was signed, “Team Dolly.”

The website Snopes.com previously addressed the claims as well, saying they were false and that Parton never endorsed those products. Users had apparently been reacting to Facebook ads using the country music star’s image to sell CBD gummies that could allegedly “reverse dementia.”
The ad includes a photo of Parton with the headline: “Allegation(s) Against Dolly Parton Have Been Confirmed.” Snopes confirmed this was all false, and that the accompanying link revealed no allegations or proof after clicking on the ad.
Fans rallied around the “Jolene” singer in the comments, writing, “I’ll get the pitchforks,” and, “You let me know where to meet you.”
“Dolly is such a class act,” another person shared. “(And also WHO had the nerve?!)”
Many fans found humor in Parton’s reaction, pointing out how she’s never involved in scandals and gets along with everyone.
“This is the most drama Dolly ever will get involved with,” one follower observed.
Another said the singer should consider making the rumors a reality.
“Okay but imagine Dolly CBD products….. we would go crazy over that,” someone else said.
While she’s not promoting CBD gummies, Parton did recently join with Duncan Hines for a special line of Southern-inspired cake mixes and frosting flavors which sold out just after they debuted, per Today. She said the match-up made sense because she “loved to cook and, growing up in the South, I especially love that authentic Mom and Pop kind of cooking.”
The publication noted that the country legend also published a cookbook in 2006 called “Dolly’s Dixie Fixin’s: Love, Laughter, and Lots of Good Food.”
