Candace Cameron Bure Slammed By JoJo Siwa For Defending Traditional Marriage – ‘F***ed Up’
Jojo Siwa is saying that she probably won't be speaking to Candace Cameron Bure again because of comments she made on traditional marriage.
The social media influencer Jojo Siwa, who feuded with Candace Cameron Bure over the summer, is saying that she likely will never speak to the former “Full House” star again after the conservative Christian actress defended traditional marriage last week.
Cameron Bure, 46, has found herself in hot water with the left over the past few days after she dared to say that her new network Great American Family will “keep traditional marriage at the core” of its’ storytelling. This didn’t sit well with Siwa, a 19 year-old lesbian who immediately fired back by branding Cameron Bure’s comments as “rude and hurtful.”

Siwa Sounds Off Against Cameron Bure
“As I’m getting older, I’m starting to realize what an impact I really do get to have,” Siwa told People Magazine. “I think that’s a really cool position to be in. I am being honest and maybe being a little disruptive to somebody’s life, but it’s what I believe in. And so to have good people stand behind you with it felt really nice.”
“We have not [talked], and I don’t think we ever will again,” she added of herself and Cameron Bure. “That’s what’s f—ed up. You not liking gay marriage, do your thing girl. You being religious, do your thing girl. Of course, I would want everybody to do what they want to do. But to purposely exclude someone because of who they love, that’s sh—y.”
Since Cameron Bure has signed on as chief creative officer for Great American Family, she’s been accused of trying to exclude members of the LGBTQ community with her comments about traditional marriage. This narrative has continued to be pushed despite the fact that Cameron Bure has released a statement saying that “people of all ethnicities and identities have and will continue to contribute to the network in great ways both in front of and behind the camera.”

Siwa Issues Demand To Cameron Bure
Ignoring this, Siwa called on Cameron Bure to accept an invitation from GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis’ to “come have a conversation.”
“That’s what I would want Candace to do,” Siwa said. “I would want her to have a conversation with GLAAD. Because even though I am educated, GLAAD is such an incredible organization. Sarah is a genius when it comes to the gay community. And I think that Candace having a conversation with her would be not only eye-opening to Candace but eye-opening to a whole world of people who might have those same beliefs.”
This comes after Siwa and Cameron Bure made headlines back in July when the teenager accused the former “Fuller House” star of being the “rudest celebrity” that she’s ever met. Cameron Bure later apologized in an emotional Instagram video, and the feud was seemingly put to rest after that.

Siwa Reignites Feud
Siwa reignited the feud, however, last week after she saw what Cameron Bure had to say about traditional marriage.
“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,” she said immediately after Cameron Bure’s comments came out. “This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people.”
At this point, Cameron Bure probably has no interest in speaking to Siwa again, so the teenager’s latest remarks likely don’t hold as much weight as she thinks that ey do. Here’s hoping that the liberal mob leaves Cameron Bure alone at some point, and that she’s allowed to resume her career in peace.
