Candace Cameron Bure Claims It’s Her ‘God-Given Nature’ to Respond to Online Critics

by Josh Lanier

Candace Cameron Bure said social media is a two-way street. She’s happy to accept criticism when she’s wrong. But when trolls attack her for no reason, she’s going to clap back.

The former Fuller House star has received backlash a number of times over the past year. Some of the criticism, she admits, is legitimate, but there have been plenty that made no sense to her. So, she wants to stand up for herself.

“Honestly, I feel like that’s just part of my God-given nature,” she told the “Whine Down” podcast, according to Us Weekly.

“Maybe because I had children in my 20s,” she continued. “God gave me a lot of patience and it’s tested all the time, but I’ve had a lot of time to practice my patience. It’s not great every day.”

The most recent incident happened when Candace Cameron Bure posted a bizarre TikTok where she danced while holding a Bible and lip-syncing to “Jealous Girl” from Lana Del Ray. She said the point of the video was to show the power of the Holy Spirit. But it put off most of her fans who called it bizarre and seductive.

Cameron Bure deleted the video and apologized.

“I will say, I enjoy apologizing. I like receiving an apology if someone is wrong,” she admitted. “So I’m quick to say, like, ‘Hey, if I got that wrong, so sorry.’ The apology was as easy as that. It was a TikTok gone wrong.”

But she pushed back last year when a photo of her husband with his hand on her breast went viral.

“He can touch me any time he wants, and I hope he does,” she said at the time. “This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about. I’m sorry if it offended you — I’m actually not sorry. I’m glad we have fun together after so many years. He can touch me all day long.”

Cameron Bure Struggles as Son Leave for College

Candace Cameron Bure said seeing her son leave for college was incredibly difficult. Not only because it was her youngest child finally leaving the nest.

“College bound!!!” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m so excited for him, although as his mama, and him being the baby, I’m so 😭.”

Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to drop him off at college herself. She and her husband, Valerie Bure, saw him off at the airport. While she hated not being able to go with him, she didn’t get much support from her husband. Valerie Bure, a Russian-born former NHL star said he moved across the world as a teenager to play hockey.

“He’s 19 years old, by the way. I moved from Russia to the U.S. by myself. I was 16 or 17,” he said in Candace Cameron Bure’s video of their trip to the airport. “My mom didn’t drop me off, by the way.”
