From same-sex marriage commentary to TikTok videos

Sparkling kickback. Candace Cameron Bure has found herself at the center of controversy several times over the years. The Fuller House alum faced criticism most recently after claiming that she quit working with the Hallmark Channel and moved to Great American Family because the new network does not feature same-sex couples at the center of her projects. After she made the comment in a Wall Street Journal interview published on November 14, several stars took to social media to criticize Candace. “Fanatic. I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy,” Hilarie Burton wrote via Twitter in response to an article summarizing the interview. “But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that wave of prejudice all the way to the bank.” Meanwhile, JoJo Siwa took to Instagram to call the former Full House star for the interview. “I honestly can’t believe that after everything that happened just a few months ago, she would not only create a movie with the intention of excluding LGBTQIA+, but also talk about it in the press,” the Dance Moms alum wrote in November 15. “This is rude and hurtful to an entire community of people.” Candace finally addressed the criticism via Instagram on November 16. “It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would think that I would intentionally want to offend and hurt someone,” she wrote. “It saddens me that the media often seeks to divide us, even around something as comforting and joyful as Christmas movies. But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, it shouldn’t surprise me. We need Christmas more than ever.” Her comment about depicting same-sex marriage on screen isn’t the first time Candace has faced backlash. She has been criticized for her conservative views and admitted that she felt “pressure” to represent conservatives on television while serving as a panelist on The View from 2015 to 2016. “Stress and anxiety: I actually have a hole in my stomach. now,” she said while appearing on the “Behind the Table” podcast in October 2021. “There was only one type of stress that I felt in my life, that came from that show. Me too [have] PTSD, like, I can feel it. It was very difficult, and managing that emotional stress was very, very difficult.” Candace decided to leave the show a month after Donald Trump won the presidential election in November 2016 because she felt that defending his political positions would be even more difficult.
