He continued, “I just hope you a–holes are happy you took a good Man and talent down. You succeeded. Be proud that you ruined a person’s life all because of [the] Freak Show called ‘Dolly Parton and BLM.’ Thanks a lot. I gave my best to you assholes for over 30 years. I guess you just love to kick someone when they’re down. That’s so twisted and perverted. Again, thanks! I’m remember you bastards!”
Baker, who has voiced Squidbillies‘ Early Cuyler for 12 seasons, was fired over “incendiary” Facebook posts in which he referred to country singer Dolly Parton as a “freak titted, old Southern bimbo” and a “slut” after she came out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
