Hollywood is extremely left-wing and secular.
People with religious values within the film industry tend to be low-key about their faith.
And one Christian actress was blindsided by the last person she saw coming.
Actress Candace Cameron Bure is one of the few people in the film industry who is very open about her Christian values.
Both her and her brother Kirk Cameron are outspoken about their faith, and they have carved out a niche for themselves in Christian-themed and family-oriented content.
Bure is best known for playing eldest sister DJ Tanner in the 1980s-90s sitcom Full House and the recent sequel Fuller House, and her television sister Jodie Sweetin, who played Stephanie Tanner in both series, seems to have an issue with her.
Bure recently got criticized by teen pop star Jojo Siwa for being the “rudest” celebrity she had ever encountered.
The two seemed to have patched things up, but Siwa again went after Bure in response to an interview where Bure talked about moving from the Hallmark Channel to Great American Family.
Great American Family is more conservative while Hallmark is trending leftward; the channel is making a concerted effort to include for homosexual couples in lead roles.
Siwa wrote on social media, “Honestly, I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with intention of excluding LGBTQIA+, but then also talk about it in the press…This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people.”
Siwa sent out another Instagram post that included that screen caption, “Candace Cameron Bure’s Plans for New Cable Channel: No Gays,” and Sweetin replied to Siwa, “You know I love you,” suggesting that she was throwing shade at Bure.
The controversy brewed after comments made by Bure in a Wall Street Journal interview.
The Wall Street Journal reported that “Great American Family pushes both [network founder Bill] Abbott and Mrs. Bure deeper into culturally conservative territory as other networks are taking steps to trumpet diversity. Next month, Hallmark debuts ‘The Holiday Sitter,’ the G-rated network’s first original holiday film solely focused on an LGBT love story. Asked if she expects her new channel to feature same-sex couples as leads in holiday movies, Mrs. Bure said no. ‘I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.’”
Other left-wing celebrities pounced on Bure’s interview.
Actress Hilarie Burton said of Bure, “Bigot. I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy.
But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank.”
Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Burton’s husband, dogpiled and wrote on Twitter, “How’d I miss this twit?! Who the f*ck is this person? Hey Hil? You’re awesome. We lucky to have ya.”
Burton added, “Now they’re just openly admitting their bigotry. I called this sh*t out years ago when Abbott was at Hallmark. Glad they dumped him. Being LGBTQ isn’t a ‘trend’. That guy and his network are disgusting. You too Candy. There is nothing untraditional about same-sex couples.”
This is the “tolerant” left in action.
Hollywood leftists cannot stand that anyone has traditional religious beliefs.
