Candace Cameron Bure is under intense scrutiny from the Christian community after appearing on Netflix’s new series, Fuller House.
Candace Cameron Cure has been facing plenty of backlash from her own fans after Fuller House debuted on Friday, Feb. 26. Bure is known for her conservative and Christian values, especially on ABC’s daytime talk show, The View. But now the actress has been receiving criticism from her own conservative fans on Instagram. Bure took to her Instagram page to share a seemingly innocent photo of herself posing with her co-stars Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber in sexy dresses.
It’s obvious that Candace’s dress is the skimpiest out of the bunch, but it’s nothing to write home about. The black lace jumpsuit has a plunging neckline, but it doesn’t reveal any cleavage. And yes the shorts do show off her legs, but it still keeps Candace’s bottom covered. On the post, fans commented their feelings about Candace’s ensemble, which one commented referred to as “lingerie.”
“I thought she stands for Christian values,” one commenter wrote on the now deleted post, according to Christian Today. Another fan added, “Seriously though! I am so sad! I thought @Candacebure stands up for Christian values?!?! This makes me so sad. I can’t let my kids watch this, is this how you dress?”
Bure didn’t address the backlash from her fans, but she did remove the photo from her Instagram account. This isn’t the first time that Bure has been slammed for her sexy attire. Back in 2014, she wrote a blog post on her website about the challenges of being a Christian actress in Hollywood.
“‘I’m too religious, I’m not Godly enough, I’m too thin now, I’m not very humble, I’ve had too much plastic surgery, My brother Kirk is a better Christian than me, I’m too worldly, I’m too conservative, I’m not modest enough, I’m a show-off.’ Those are just a few of the types of comments I get no matter what I share, what photo I post or what I say.”
Candace Cameron Bure wore the racy outfit in Episode 3 of Fuller House, where she embraced her sultry side. She also busted out her “dirty dancing moves” with her BFF Kimmy Gibbler, with the two being referred to as “luscious lesbians.” The episode has been raising concerns among Christian fans who have always looked up to Candace as a Christian role model for young women, according to Christian News.
In the “Funner House” episode, Candace Cameron Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner, decides to have a girl’s night out with both Kimmy and her sister Stephanie Tanner.
As the women arrive to the Euphoria nightclub, Tanner adjusts her super-short outfit, saying, “I don’t know if I should be tugging this down or pulling it up.”
The girls are also seen referring to themselves as the “She-Wolf Pack” as they down tequila shots and cut loose with Maskim “Maks” and Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Dancing With the Stars) who were hoping to score with both sisters at the end of the night. You can read the rest of the episode summary here.
There’s also another scene on Fuller House that Christian fans won’t be happy about. That is, if they make it that far. If you haven’t binge-watched all 13 episodes, then you haven’t gotten to the moment when Kimmy planted a kiss on Stephanie’s lips in Episode 12, as D.J. looks on in shock.
The kiss – along with Macy Gray mistaking D.J. and Kimmy for a lesbian couple in Episode 3 – means that the House franchise is finally realizing the existence of gay people living in San Francisco.
Back in January, Candace Cameron Bure revealed that she would be open to having lesbian and gay people included in future storylines on Fuller House.
“I’m always defending religious freedom and that’s what I was talking about on The View. But, I’m an actress on a television show and I support all things that we go through as human beings and would love all our characters to explore whatever issues that are current in our culture and our society today and I’m 100% on board with that.”
