Dolly Parton, 77, was shamed over her Dallas Cowboys outfit. Here's why critics are 'ageist'

Dolly Parton drew criticism for her sultry attire after performing at a Dallas Cowboys football game last week while sporting the team's cheerleader uniform,

which consists of white shorts and a blue crop top. Some were apprehensive, but many thought the country music icon was "killing it" in her costume.

The statement "A 77-year-old woman shouldn't be on stage pretending they're 20..."

 was made by one X (formerly Twitter) account. We must cease normalizing this conduct." One other person asked X users if they thought her outfit was "OK".

Indeed, and why not? She looks amazing at 77 years old." The post received one reply.

"No woman gives a flying s—- what your opinion is of their outfit choices," another stated.
