JoJo Siwa says Candace Cameron Bure wants to ‘put down’ LGBTQ people

JoJo Siwa is reflecting on her rocky relationship with Candace Cameron Bure.

Last summer, the YouTube star went viral with a TikTok video dubbing Bure the “rudest celebrity” she’d ever met. The “Fuller House” actress publicly apologized and the two made nice.

But bad blood was reignited last November, after the Wall Street Journal published an interview with Bure about her faith-based channel Great American Family. Asked if the channel will feature LGBTQ storylines, Bure responded that programming will “keep traditional marriage” – meaning between a man and a woman – “at the core.”

Siwa, who identifies as queer, criticized Bure’s comments in an Instagram post at the time, writing, “This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people.”
