Tennessee couple Jennifer Tipton and Olivier Odom are accusing Dolly Parton's theme park, Dollywood, of anti-gay discrimination. A park employee asked Odom to turn her "Marriage is so gay" t-shirt inside out because the park is "family friendly."
Parton, however, has publicly said that she supports marriage equality. During an appearance on The Joy Behar Show, she was asked, "Would you say that you are pro-gay marriage?" by Behar, who noted that Parton's Southern roots might bias her against gay people.
"I know that's true," Parton replied. "I always say, 'Sure, why can't they get married? They should suffer like the rest of us do.'"
