Whoopi Goldberg has slammed critics who have been hating on Dolly Parton for not "dressing her age."

The 68-year-old decided to speak out against the recent trolling against the popular country singer following her appearance at The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Kickoff Halftime Show during the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game against the Washington Commanders.

Parton, 77, showed up at the event wearing her rendition of the iconic Cowboy's cheerleader uniform which consisted of belted white booty shorts, a dark blue cropped shirt with a matching white and blue sleeveless vest on top. Under the 'fit, the star also wore a bedazzled mesh catsuit to cover her skin, giving her that glam factor she loves so much.

However, as gorgeous as she looked, it seemed as though the haters couldn't help but band together online, telling the '9 to 5' hitmaker that she should "dress her own age."

Imagine thinking that you could chat to the legend that is Dolly f****** Parton like that - ew.

Anyway, it seems as if Goldberg - who has always been pretty outspoken with her views - also decided that this was just not the vibe, defending the singer on a recent episode of the talk show, The View.

"Apparently, my turkey wasn't the only thing online that people were hating," started the co-host.

"Seventy-seven-year-old superstar Dolly Parton stole the show on Thanksgiving at the Cowboys/Commanders game dressed as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, but some critics told her to act her age," continued Goldberg. "Bite me."

Sunny Hostin also echoed the same sentiments saying: "If I looked like that in one of them Cowboy things, I might have everything out."

While pointing at a picture from Parton's performance, the 55-year-old also added: "I don't know if that's a belly ring or what, but I want what she has."

Have a look at the video below:

Parton gave one hell of a performance, starting with 'Jolene' before going on to cover Queen's 'We Are the Champions.'

In a press statement released prior to getting on stage, Parton spoke about how grateful she was to be partnering with The Salvation Army.

"Those Red Kettles have long been a symbol of hope for our friends and neighbors who are facing hard times," she said via the statement. "My goal is to encourage everyone who can to donate and support their neighbors in need. Every small act of generosity helps, and together, we can all love our neighbors this holiday season and beyond."

The news comes shortly after the release of Parton's 49th studio album, which ultimately became the singer's best-performing album on the Billboard 200 chart.

Speaking of the achievement, she said: "I owe a thank you to the fans who have always been there for me. Their support made this achievement possible. I'd also like to thank my producer Kent Wells, all the wonderful artists, musicians, and engineers who brought their talents to this project."
