Dolly Outraged Over Howard Stern Prank

Dolly has expressed outrage over a recent prank on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show when the shock-jock aired a lewd segment featuring Dolly’s voice. The segment featured audio taken from Dolly’s audiobook and was edited to create vulgar and racist sound bites using her voice. Dolly fired back today at the radio host by saying, “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.”

    Hi again Dolly! You should (if possible) do a cover of the Stevie Wonder song “Stay Gold”. I think it would be very theraputic for this whole nasty situation. I think you would do a nice version. Please listen to the song & lyrics. Great tune!!!

    Is it not a slap in the face of country music when the ACM awards aired two SIRIUS ads promoting howard stern, the INFIDEL durning the show? I am canceling my SIRIUS radion because of this!

    Dolly- You have your fans backing you 100%. It is quite obvious he did editing on this. I honestly believe that no one is going to buy this crock of crap. You are beautiful inside and out and everyone in the free world knows you wouldn’t say such things. We love you, Dolly! Keep your head up.

    I think you are down to earth person. I am a fan of yours, as for Howard, what he done to you was not right. He should be taken off the air for good.

    I think it’s harsh that people could abuse others this way without there being more outrage about this. I mean, he’s done it to other celebrities before (and none that I actually liked) but I’ve never agreed with cutting and diceing what others say to make them sound bad- its as bad as plagerism, which you could sue over.
    I don’t know what you’ll decide to do, but if you did decide to take this up with that (insert rude words here) then you go girl!
    You’re a strong woman, with high morales, and you shouldn’t let anything that Stern says get you down.
    My parents are totally behind you, and I only just started listening really, but I’m already a huge fan, and there’s millions of people behind you!
    Just keep facing the world, chin up and smiling… that’s one of the things I love about you.
    It’s one of the things that makes you real.
    Howard Stern is dirt, and he’s got nothing on a shooting star like you.

    I do not find Howard Stern Funny at all. He is pornographic, Rasist and gross. His fans that find him amusing are probably all on drugs.. Look at him he looks like a junkie… Dolly, I think you should sue him. Even tho it is a tape of your voice that he spliced together, he used your voice without written consent to demean or make fun of you. Slander, Deformation of cariture. Also using the clips from your book on cd he is violating your copywrite. Those of us who adore you and think you should be up for saint hood are hurt by this deeply because we know you better and we know its not you making those comments thats not the point. The point is he doe’nt have the right to abuse or slander anyone…

    I love you Dolly!
