A photo of Candace Cameron Bure and husband Valeri Bure is receiving backlash from some who are calling it inappropriate. But the Christian celebrity isn’t standing for it.

Candace Cameron Bure and husband Valeri Bure met at a hockey game in 1994. Two years later, on June 22, 1996, they became husband and wife. 

With more than 20 years of marriage under their belt, the flame is still very much alive for these love birds.

And that was very apparent in a playful photo Candace shared in her Instagram stories. However, the Christian celebrity caught heat from some who felt the image was inappropriate.

But Candace isn’t backing down and even reshared the photo along with a rebuttal to all the controversy!

In the post, Candace Cameron Bure shared two photos of her and husband Valeri Bure captured “sweet and spicy”. And in the second “spicy” photo, Valeri has his arm around Candace, with his hand resting directly on his wife’s chest.

Some folks commenting blasted her for a public display of affection (PDA) they considered too racy for a Christian celebrity.

Candace Cameron Bure is known for being outspoken. She’s not afraid to speak out about her faith. And she’s also not afraid to face controversy. So, rather than back down or remove the image, Candace fired back.

“Sorry if it offended you… I’m actually not sorry,” she laughed in a follow-up video shared to her Instagram stories. “I’m glad that we have fun together after so many years.”

Candace pointed out that most of her followers loved the photo. But for those who found it offensive, she insisted it reflected a “good and healthy marriage” of 24 years.

“It makes me laugh because it’s my husband,” she responded in a follow-up video shared to her Instagram stories. “He can touch me any time he wants and I hope he does.”

It’s not surprising that some might consider the PDA shown by Candace Cameron Bure and her husband to be too much. But at the end of the day, it’s not really for us to judge.
