Candace Cameron Bure spoke up after the controversy and defended her beliefs.
Candace Cameron Bure, who plays DJ Tanner on “Full House,” is no stranger to controversy. She was recently criticized for comments she made in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that seemed biased.
The actress told the magazine during her interview that she hoped to revive Christian values in family entertainment during the holidays.
She said that she wanted to tell stories about faith, which she thinks is something that many channels no longer do. When asked if her movies would have gay couples, Bure said that they wouldn’t be on the Great American Family channel and added:
“I think that marriage will be at the center of Great American Family.”
Fans and other celebrities were very upset by what she said. After Bure’s comments, actress Hilarie Burton Morgan went on Twitter and called him a hypocrite.
She criticized the “Boy Meets World” actress for being openly racist and for saying that same-sex couples are nothing out of the ordinary. Burton’s husband, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, agreed with what she said and thanked her for calling out Bure.
Jojo Siwa, who is also a member of the LGBTQ community, spoke out about the situation and said Bure was wrong for what she said. Siwa wrote in an angry Instagram message:
“This is rude and hurtful to a group of people as a whole.”
In what way did Candace Cameron Bure’s daughter stand up for her?
When everyone started criticizing Bure for what she had said, someone close to her decided to stand up for her and defend her.
Natasha Bure, the actress’s daughter, defended her mother against the criticism in a long Instagram post where she talked to Bure and told her that she loved her for always putting Christ first.
She wrote that words are often taken out of context and twisted, but she praised her mother for always being true to what she believes and acting with grace.
After the backlash, what did Candace Cameron Bure say?
Since then, Bure has responded to the uproar with a long Instagram post in which she says she loves and cares about everyone. She said she would never hurt or upset someone on purpose.
She also told anyone who was “trying” to ruin her reputation that she loved them anyway. As a devout Christian, she said, she wanted to build bridges, bring people closer to God, and show God’s love to everyone she met.
She said that she loved everyone, even those who had tried to hurt her reputation. This included people of all faiths, races, sexual orientations, and political views.
She then said that, in her quest to find a home for more faith-based programs, she had worked with people of all races and religions in the past, and that she had no intention of changing anyone’s beliefs through her stories.
