Candace Cameron Bure found herself receiving significant backlash this past week. The actress, who moved from Hallmark Channel to Great American Family earlier this year, he spoke about the creative direction the latter network is taking with its content. In the process, Cameron Bure revealed that the channel will focus solely on stories that feature “traditional marriage” instead of including LGBTQ+ storylines when it comes to his films. The star has since addressed his comments, as the backlash continues. Now, amid controversy, Cameron Bure is opening up about his faith and making Christmas movies.
The Sold out the alum has been very vocal about his faith over the years, and it partly influenced his decision to join GAF. In his own words, he believed the team “were made up of Christians who love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.” The 46-year-old Hollywood veteran delved into her religion during an interview with Fox News, as she explained that her faith is synonymous with who she is:
That devotion to Christianity emerged when Candace Cameron Bure explained her comments on the management of GAF. In a statement, Cameron Bure said she has “great love and affection for all people” and that it “absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think that I would intentionally want to offend and hurt anyone.” He also called on the media to “use this opportunity to fan the flames of conflict and hatred”. In this period, former Hallmark star Hilarie Burton called her offand fellow alumni of the network Holly Robinson Peete and Jonathan Bennett responded also. JoJo Siwa, who has had a conflict with Cameron Bure earlier this year, he also applauded her comments and received support from Fuller houseit’s Jodie Sweetin after doing it. GLAAD also condemned the commentscalling them “irresponsible and abusive”.
Despite this current wave of backlash and more Candace Cameron Bure has received over the years, she remains arguably the queen of made-for-TV holiday movies. Her vacation-focused work at Hallmark has earned her considerable recognition and likely rejuvenated her career. And as Cameron Bure herself explained during the same interview, she didn’t see herself becoming a Christmas staple:
His role in this type of productions is also quite appropriate. The Aurora Teagarden Mysteries Alum is personally a huge fan of the holiday, as he went on to explain. She also shed some light on why she’s like this:
Candace Cameron Bure has apparently built a strong fan base through her work on Hallmark, and one would imagine that many of them will check out his Christmas present GAF when it comes down. There’s also a solid possibility that pushback could further ensue in relation to her statements about the network’s focus on traditional marriage. Though based on Cameron Bure’s comments, one could imagine she’ll look to his faith in case of further criticism.
