Big things sure do come in small packages. At least that’s what fans were greeted with on Wednesday night’s “Toddler and Tiaras” when a 4-year-old was dressed to look like Dolly Parton—breasts and booty-shaking enhancements included. Needless to say, many viewers were not amused, reports The New York Post.

“It is extremely disturbing the things these parents are allowing their children to wear,” Marion A. Vail Pollak wrote on TLC’s Facebook page. “Where is child protective services when you need them? Enhancements? Really?…What the heck are you enhancing?”

Others viewers labeled the cushy additives as “not appropriate,” “child pornography,” and “the ultimate in bad taste.”

However, mom Lindsay, who dressed her daughter, Maddy, as the famous pint-sized country icon, found the whole get-up pretty hilarious.

“When she wears the fake boobs and fake butt, it’s an added, extra bonus,” she said in the episode. “It’s really funny when she comes out onstage. Everyone thinks it’s hysterical. All of a sudden, they realize that not only is she Dolly, but she has the enhancements just like Dolly.”

Despite the controversy, the judges enjoyed Maddy’s little hip-and-booty shaking act and eventually awarded her “Sweetest Face.”

“With anything, people are gonna think things are over-the-top,” Lindsay told the “Today Show” on Wednesday. “To some people, it’s over-the-top. To us, it’s just what happens. It’s normal.”

While some fans agreed with Lindsay and took light of the situation, they were few and far between.

“Fake boobs are going to be a drop in that dysfunctional bucket,” wrote Heather Campbell Harris.

If mom had only dressed lil Maddy as Taylor Swift, there’d be nothing to freak out about. Know what we mean?
