Taking to Twitter, one person wrote, "Okay, but why is nobody talking about how Dolly Parton was banned from TikTok today? Her first day?? What did she do?” alongside a crying emoji.

Another fan said the social media app needs to go easy on the community guideline violations, noting they removed the “Jolene” singer of all people, alongside an expressionless emoji.

Despite fans’ concerns about the seemingly unfortunate fiasco, it turns out Parton was never really on TikTok as the video was deemed fake.

According to Celebrity.nine.com, the account had reposted a clip from when the Tennessee native filmed for her charity back in 2020.

Following its removal from the app, it was accompanied by a screenshot stating the account violated multiple Community Guidelines.

According to ET Canada, the songwriter herself remains mum on the controversy as she has not addressed the situation on either of her social media accounts.
