Candace Cameron Bure can’t win these days. Ever since Netflix rolled out Season 1 of Fuller House late last week, the conservative Christian actress has been under attack by her own fans for her sexy outfits and even racier scenes on the comedy series.
Fuller House has already been one of the most popular series on the streaming service. On Wednesday, March 2, it was announced that the comedy series has been renewed for Season 2. That means viewers will get to see more of Candace Cameron Bure taking on the role of the widowed DJ Tanner, who balances her career with dating and family life. If you binge-watched the series, it’s obvious that Bure’s character has grown up, but her fans can’t handle it.
An article entitled “Did Candace Cameron Bure Lower Christian Standards for Fuller House” was published by the Christian Post. The article was questioning the actress’ Christian faith when she was previously slammed by her fans for being too Christian. It seems like Candace can’t win no matter what she does, and she already highlighted that in her blog post from 2014.
“‘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 few of the types of comments I get no matter what I share, what photo I post or what I say.”
Candace Cameron Bure recently received backlash from her fans on Instagram. Leading up to the debut of Fuller House, she posted a photo of herself with co-stars Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber in sexy club dresses.
Bure wrote, “4 more sleeps until Kimmy, Stef and Deej are back in action!!”
In the photo, Candace is seen wearing a black lace jumper with a plunging neckline. Fans took to the post to share their disappointment over Candace’s outfit, which one referred to as “lingerie.”
Meanwhile, other of Candace Cameron Bure’s fans have taken to her official Facebook page to express their disgust and shock over the lewd jokes and adult themes in Fuller House. Although the show is family focused like Full House, there’s a lot more references to drugs, alcohol, and sex in the reboot. There’s also some same-sex kissing featured in a few of the episodes. Some of Bure’s own fans aren’t too pleased watching the adult content.
“We were promised over and over again that this would be the ‘family friendly’ show that we loved in the original ‘Full House,'” one fan wrote.
Another fan added, “I waited a long time to watch this and I was so excited, but the gay/lesbian act scenes uh NO..the profanity used, and the lack of clothing on some were just a huge disappointment..if you’re going to state youre a Christian then you can’t live in a world of sin and act like it’s ok.”
Candace hasn’t responded to her haters on Instagram or Facebook pages — and she doesn’t need to. Instead, she removed the Instagram post and has celebrated the exciting news that Fuller House is being renewed for a second season.
The child star has also overcome her struggle with bulimia. She recently shared a photo with celebrity fitness trainer Kira Stokes, where she reveals her curvier figure. Candace was diagnosed with bulimia in her early adult years. She detailed her struggles with bulimia in her 2011 memoir, Reshaping It All.
“When I was 16, I filmed an episode of ‘Full House’ where my family goes to Disney World. I remember putting on baggy overalls just to hide my stomach. When I watched it, I was pretty disappointed and bummed out looking at myself. I didn’t feel good about my own body.”
Since 2010, the actress has been treated for the eating disorder and has focused on maintaining a healthy weight and even healthier lifestyle. These days Candace works out four to five days a week doing cardio, Pilates, weight training, or some yoga.
