Dolly Parton apologizes to gay couple

Singer Dolly Parton has issued a personal apology to a gay couple.

A woman was asked to turn a shirt that read "Marriage is so gay" inside out before she could enter Dollywood's Splash Country.

The woman was visiting the park last month with her wife and friends when her shirt was deemed inappropriate.

The park has a dress code.

The woman complied but later sent an email to the park about the incident.

In response, the park offered to refund the couple's admission fee.

Dolly Parton responded with a note saying in part "Dollywood is a family park and all families are welcome."
