Parton had a 9 to 5 reunion with her former co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin while presenting an award. The presentation was well-received by the Emmy audience and most people watching at home but some of Parton’s fans weren’t all too happy about the company Parton seems to keep.

Fonda and Tomlin used their platform to speak out about an issue important to them with Fonda saying, “In 1980 we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot boss.” Comedian Lily Tomlin came in at the end saying, “And in 2017 we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot boss.”

Tomlin’s final words were clearly meant to show a parallel between 9 to 5 movie boss played by Dabney Coleman and President Donald Trump. Parton was smack dab in the middle in the middle of her two former co-stars and while she didn’t have anything to add, she also didn’t argue or defend Trump either. Instead, Parton talked about how happy she was to be reunited with her two friends up on stage and she remained mostly positive.
