Jojo Siwa called Candace Cameron Bure “rude and hurtful” after the Full house star announced she would be appearing in Christmas movies that focus on “traditional marriage,” not LGBT+ relationships.
In a new interview with The Wall Street Journalformer Hallmark darling Bure, known as the station’s “Queen of Christmas,” spoke about a move to the more “conservative” Great American Family network.
With Hallmark to release The Holiday Sitter The next month, when her first original Christmas film focused solely on an LGBT+ love story, Bure was asked if Great American Family would also feature LGBT+ storylines.
Bure said no, adding, “I think the Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at its core.”
On Tuesday night (November 15), Siwa, who announced that she will be part of the LGBTQ+ community in 2021, shared her frustration at Bure’s words.
Referring to her public feud with the actor earlier this summer, the 19-year-old posted a screenshot of an article paraphrasing Bure’s comments to say there would be “no gay people” on her channel.
“Honestly, after everything that happened a few months ago, I can’t believe she wouldn’t make a film with the sole intention of excluding LGBTQIA+ [people]but then also talk about it in the press,” Siwa replied.
“This is rude and hurtful to an entire community of people.”
Siwa was supported in the comments section, with actress Alyssa Milano commenting, “Thank you for being such a positive role model for my kids. Love you so much.”
“You know I love you,” Jodie Sweetin added, while Maddie Ziegler wrote, “Go away Jojo!!!!!!”
The Independent has reached out to Bure representatives for comment.

Bure seemed to respond by posting a Bible verse on Instagram.
