Candace Cameron Bure Unfollows Jodie Sweetin After Gay Marriage Drama
The Full House girlies are fighting.
For all her “I love you anyway” (damage control) messages, Candace Cameron Bure isn’t afraid to get petty with her social media unfollows. She unfriended her sitcom sibling Jodie Sweetin after the latter wrote a supportive message on JoJo Siwa’s social media during the fallout from Bure’s comments about only “traditional marriage” being featured on her new network, Great American Family.
Earlier this month, Bure, who has moved from the Hallmark Channel to GAF, was asked by The Wall Street Journal if its holiday programming, like that of Hallmark, would be inclusive of LGBTQ+ couples. Bure quickly shut that down.
“I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians and love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment,” she said, adding that GAC “will keep traditional marriage at the core.”
The backlash was swift with stars like Hilarie Burton Morgan, Jonathan Bennett, and JoJo Siwa calling out Bure for her bigoted comments.
“Honestly, I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with the intention of excluding LGBTQIA+ but then also talk about it in the press,” wrote Siwa in an Instagram post, referring to their previous feud. “This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people.
The comment received lots of support, including from Sweetin who wrote, “You know I love you” in the comments, seemingly shading Bure’s statements.
Bure and Sweetin have worked together since childhood, starting on Full House for eight seasons, then reprising those roles in the Netflix reboot Fuller House. But that long friendship, it seems, may have come to an end.
