After drawing criticism from some for her performance on Fuller House, Candace Cameron Bure told critics they weren’t “represent[ing] Jesus.”
"This is getting ridiculous!! STOP (stop emoji) having religious debates about me and my family on my comments thread after EVERY single photo I post when they have nothing to do with the picture!" Bure posted on her Instagram page.
"If someone makes a rude or negative comment, ignore it! You're feeding and driving the negativity. This is NOT productive or respectful conversation. And I'm talking to BOTH sides! It's getting old and downright ugly. This does not represent Jesus well. Let's encourage one another as well as take the debates to a private page. Please and thank you," Bure said.
Fans and critics have taken to Bure’s Instagram page to debate her Christian values after her new series, Fuller House, released at the end of February on Netflix.
Some have said the show was a “disappointment” and a step away from her Christian values.
One Twitter viewer wroter: "@candacecbure You should talk to Kirk about this new show you are promoting. I don't think he'd approve. Where's your witness?"
Just before the show’s premiere, Bure told the press that the show was modern but still family-friendly.
"Tonally, the show is very much the same, but it's updated" she explained. "I'm sure a few of the jokes are a little bit racier now than they would have been in the '90s, but it's still nothing that's inappropriate or that you would feel uncomfortable watching with your kids. We're three grown women, and I have to say, we're all pretty good-looking, too. [Laughs] We have some cute guys on the show, too, so that's fun," Bure said.
