Candace Cameron Bure speaks out after Miss Benny insinuated the Christian actress wanted her queer persona removed from More complete house. In a statement, Bure denied having anything to do with the 24-year-old’s arc on the show.

“I never asked for the character of Miss Benny to be removed from More complete house and did not ask the writers, producers, or studio executives not to have queer characters on the show. More complete house has always welcomed a wide cast of characters,” Bure told Yahoo Entertainment on Friday. “I think Miss Benny did a great job as ‘Casey’ on the show. We didn’t share any scenes together, so we didn’t get to talk much while filming on set. I wish Miss Benny the best.”

The 47-year-old’s response came after Miss Benny’s TikTok about her experience on More complete house has gone viral – here’s a look at what’s going on.

Miss Benny claimed ‘one of the Tanner sisters’ was unwelcoming on set

“One of the Tanner sisters is like very publicly, uh, not for the girls, if that makes sense. I remember being sat down by the writers and the studio to tell me basically how that person would have tried to have the character removed and not have a weird character on the show,” Miss Benny shared.

“I was also kind of warned and prepared that this person’s fan base might be encouraged to target me, in particular,” she continued. “The fact that this teenage actor who comes to make jokes about wearing, for example, a scarf is suddenly the target of an adult is crazy to me. So to this day, despite the fact that I worked on the show every day for two weeks straight, I only had one conversation with one of the Tanner sisters. What’s good is that I had a really fun time shooting the series with all the other actors who were willing to talk to me.”

Although Miss Benny, which is now playing on Netflix Glamourdid not name Bure, she included the hashtag #CandaceBure.

Hallmark, under new management, had featured more progressive storylines as the network released its first original holiday movie featuring an LGBTQ love story. Bure declined to specifically explain why she left Hallmark, but shared, “It’s basically a completely different network than when I started because of the change in management.”

Bure said same-sex couples won’t be featured prominently at the GAF, adding, “I think the big American family will keep traditional marriage at their hearts.”

Bure responded to the outcry in a statement

The actress, who is never afraid of her faith, said she had “great affection for everyone” but didn’t necessarily back down on her comments.

“Any of you who know me know without a doubt that I have a lot of love and affection for everyone. It breaks my heart that anyone would think that I would intentionally want to offend and hurt someone. It saddens me that the media often seeks to divide us, even over such a heartwarming and joyous topic as Christmas movies. But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t not be surprised. We need Christmas more than ever,” she said. Weekly entertainment. “I am a devoted Christian. Which means that I believe that every human being bears the image of God. Because of this, I am called to love everyone, and I do. If you know me, you know that I am a person who loves fiercely and indiscriminately.My heart longs to build bridges and bring people closer to God, to love others well and to simply be a reflection of God’s immense love for all of us.

She added, “To those who hate what I enjoy and attack me online: I love you. To those who tried to assassinate my character: I love you. To everyone reading this, of any race, creed, sexuality or political party, including those who have tried to bully me with name calling, I love you.”
