“Full House” star Candace Cameron Bure criticized over “traditional marriage” comments
The views of former “Full House” actor Candace Cameron Bure on marriage are now in the spotlight following a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal .. Bure left Hallmark Channel earlier in the year to join cable network Great American Family. When asked if she expected same-sex couples as leads in movies on the channel’s channels, Bure replied, “I think Great American Family will keep traditional married at the core.” “
The comments caused outrage among LBGT online, including Jojo Siwa, a singer and dancer who posted a photo to Instagram of a news story discussing Bure’s comments.
“This was rude and hurtful for a whole community,” she wrote. Jodie Sweetin, Bure’s former “Full House”, costar, commented on Siwa’s post with the following: “You know that I love you. “
This is not the first time Siwa has criticised Bure. According to Billboard, Siwa called Bure “the “rudest celebrity” in July. This was in a TikTok video which went viral.
Bure responded to the online criticism, telling People, “It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone. “
” I had also stated in my interview, which wasn’t included, that people from all ethnicities and backgrounds have and will continue contributing to the network in great and varied ways both in front and behind the camera. This is something I encourage and fully support,” she said.
Bure told The Wall Street Journal that her faith was part of her move from Great American Family. “My heart desires to tell stories with more meaning, purpose, and depth. I knew that Great American Family was run by Christians who love the Lord and wanted good family entertainment and faith programming. “
GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis criticized Bure’s comments. She tweeted, “It’s irresponsible, hurtful for Candace Cameron Bure, to use tradition as an excuse for exclusion.” The organization supports LGBT people in media.
“Bure “is out of sync to a growing majority people of faith including LGBTQ peoples of faith who know that LGBTQ couples are deserving love and visibility,” she stated.
