Full House’s Candace Cameron Bure has recently become the chief creative officer at the Great American Family network and has commented that she wants to keep traditional marriage at the core of the movies she will create at the network.
In response to this comment, Bure has been labeled as a bigot by her Hollywood counterparts as two actresses have come forward to condemn her.

Candace Cameron Bure’s comments about not featuring same-sex couples in her films have met criticism.
Bure, who is now working as Great American Family’s chief creative officer, recently spoke about wanting to put religion back into Christmas movies. The actress’ departure from Hallmark comes as the network attempts to add more diversity to its lineup.
“The Holiday Sitter,” Hallmark’s first original film to focus on a same-sex couple, is set to be released next month.
When asked by the Wall Street Journal if her new channel will feature any LGBTQ storylines, Bure said no.
“I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core,” she said.
However, the chief executive of Great American Media and orginal creator of the Hallmark Channel noted that there isn’t a set plan.
“It’s certainly the year 2022, so we’re aware of the trends,” Bill Abbott told the outlet. “There’s no whiteboard that says, ‘Yes, this’ or ‘No, we’ll never go here.’”
Bure’s statement was called out by Hilarie Burton and Jojo Siwa.
Burton reacted to the comments on Twitter, slamming Bure as “disgusting.”
“Now they’re just openly admitting their bigotry. I called this s— out years ago when Abbott was at Hallmark,” she wrote. “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.”
“Bigot,” Burton added. “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.”
Siwa shared her thoughts on Instagram.
“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 wrote.
“This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people.”
Jodie Sweetin, Bure’s “Full House” co-star, was seen in Siwa’s comment section, showing her support. “You know I love you,” she wrote, adding two red heart emojis.
Bure is a Christian who simply wants to focus on creating meaningful movies that focus on traditional relationships and marriages. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
But in today’s toxic and corrupt world where Hollywood is shoving the LGBT alphabet down everyone’s throat, Bure is quickly labeled a bigot by her hateful peers because she stands for God’s view of marriage, which is really the only view since he created it.
