But here's a twist...
Parton's account being banned is more than what it seems. It turns out that the account was fake and the video it posted was a clip that Parton filmed for her charity in 2020. Nine.com found that this clip was originally posted on TikTok in 2020 by Parton's charity Imagination Library.
Among Parton's recent works is an eight-part Netflix series called 'Dolly Parton's Heartstrings' that aired in November 2019. The series features her music career. A biographical documentary 'Here I Am' was added to the catalog of the Netflix streaming service in December 2019. This documentary is a co-production of Netflix and the BBC, and takes its name from the singer's 1971 song, which was included in her album 'Coat of Many Colors'. Parton produced and starred in the Netflix musical film Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square in November last year. Her work won her a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Movie.
