Candace Cameron Bure Fires Back About Chick-fil-A Photo After She’s Accused Of Lying About Not Eating Fast Food
Candace Cameron Bure has broken her silence after she was accused of lying about not eating fast food by eating Chick-fil-A.
Last week, we reported that the actress Candace Cameron Bure had claimed that she’d not eaten fast food in twenty years, only to be accused of lying when fans found a 2012 Instagram photo in which she appeared to be enjoying Chick-fil-A with her son. Now, she’s firing back at her accusers in a big way by shutting them down.

Cameron Bure’s Chick-fil-A Scandal
“I haven’t eaten fast food except for In-N-Out in 20 years,” Cameron Bure, 47, wrote on her Instagram Story last week, according to Fox News. “Some days I wonder what a burger and fries is like from McDonalds or Burger King or Wendy’s or any of those other places I’ve never eaten at … Am I going to find out? No!”
“I don’t regret it. You can’t convince me otherwise,” she added.
Cameron Bure was then accused of lying when social media users found a 2012 photo in which she was holding a Chick-fil-A cup in the car with one of her sons.
“We love Chikin!” she captioned the post, which has since been deleted.
Perhaps Candace Cameron Bure shouldn't say that she hasn't eaten fast food in 20 years because that's a blatant lie. She bought Chick Fil A in 2012 to own the libs. Bigot.

Cameron Bure’s Eating Disorder History
Cameron Bure has long been open about suffering from an eating disorder in the past.
“I knew I had a problem but again, it’s like being on a runaway train and you wanna get off but you don’t know how to get off,” Cameron Bure told Entertainment Tonight in 2016. “I kind of lost my identity in a sense and what happened was I turned to food for comfort when my husband was traveling and when I was alone.”
“I had a very unhealthy relationship with food that turned into bulimia. I dealt with it for several years but it wasn’t about body image and trying to feel good — It was about trying to find comfort or fill voids within myself,” she continued, adding that “the most important thing for me to teach my children is about health and fitness.”
Cameron Bure shares three children with her former professional hockey player husband Valeri Bure, who she’s been married to since 1996: Natasha, 24, Lev, 23, and Maksim, 21.
“It’s about taking care of your body and eating foods that are good for you and getting the right exercise that you need,” she concluded. “… It’s just about living a healthy life for longevity and a healthy heart.”

Cameron Bure’s Plant-Based Diet
In 2018, Cameron Bure revealed that she typically sticks to a plant-based diet.
“I eat a very plant and grain-based diet,” she explained. “I follow a more Mediterranean diet, so I eat lots of fresh vegetables and whole grains and fish. I don’t eat dairy very often, and I’ve cut most of the sugar out of my diet — I see the biggest effect from not eating as much sugar.”

Cameron Bure is one of the only openly Christian conservative actresses in Hollywood, so she’s frequently the target of ridiculous attacks of the left, and this is a prime example of that. It’s sad that a good Christian woman like Cameron Bure has been put into the position of having to explain why she’s holding a Chick-fil-A cup in an old photo.
