Candace Cameron Bure Blasts Fuller House Critics as ‘Ridiculous,’ Posts Lustful Kiss From Show

Unrepentant talk show host and actress Candace Cameron Bure is taking issue with “negativity” and “religious debates” from her fans who are flooding her social media pages with concern about the content in “Fuller House”—a restart of the 80’s show “Full House”—which features immodesty, lesbian kissing, sexual and alcoholic references and other controversial content. Days after calling for an end, she posted a photograph of a scene where she jumps on a man who is not her husband and passionately kisses him.

“This is getting ridiculous!!” she fumed last Saturday, next to a cartoon of an annoyed Cameron Bure saying “c’mon.” “STOP 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!”

Cameron Bure instructed fans to ignore negative comments and to take the talk elsewhere.

“If someone makes a rude or negative comment, ignore it! You’re feeding and driving the negativity,” Cameron Bure continued. “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,” she said, not addressing the concerns that caused the comments in the first place.

Fans had been posting remarks on Cameron Bure’s social media pages in expressing concern about her role in “Fuller House.”

“I’m a little dissapointed with the show,” one commenter wrote. “There are sexual references, immodest clothing, and you even said a curse word. It makes me sad.”

“I quit watching the show after the fourth one. There is too much crude humor and half nakedness and body flinging,” another stated. “For somebody who’s supposed to be a Christian is trying to please both worlds—it’s sad it had to come to this. It’s not something today’s kids should watch either.”

“I doubt @kirkcameron would ever go on Fuller House,” a third wrote. “Really disappointed that @candacecbure turned her back on her beliefs by being on a show where kissing someone who isn’t her husband is done and where sexual innuendos and other ungodly things are promoted. I used to be a huge fan. Very sad.”

Fans went back and forth in discussing and debating their thoughts, as well as thoughts about Christianity and morality.

As previously reported, in the episode entitled “Funner House,” Cameron Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner, spends the evening drinking and dancing at a night club with her best friend Kimmy Gibbler and sister Stephanie Tanner.

As the women are preparing to leave the house, Tanner comments about her low-cut, short black dress, “I don’t know if I should be tugging this thing down or pulling it up.”

The women, who refer to themselves as the “She-Wolf Pack,” go to a night club called “Euphoria,” where they decide to order tequila shots. While at the club, Tanner tells Gibbler about her idea to do the “Dirty Dancing” routine together, and sister Stephanie Tanner speaks to M.C. Macy Gray about performing the song to get back at Gibbler’s “two-timing ex.”

During the dance-off, which also includes two men dancing suggestively, Tanner concocts a means to win by “bust[ing] out our big Dirty Dancing lift.”

“Sure that’s not the tequila talking?” Gibbler asks.

“Well, yeah, it totally is,” Tanner replies.

As the women win the dance-off, they are announced by Macy Gray as “luscious lesbians,” at which neither Tanner or her friend bat an eye.

“And the winners are these two luscious lesbians!” Gray declares. “Get up here you sexy people!”

“We’re the sexy people!” Tanner proclaims as she hurries to the stage and grabs the microphone. “I was just gonna stay in tonight, but my friends insisted that I go out and have some adult fun. They knew I needed to take care of me. Oh, I love you guys so d*rn much! Thank you, Euphoria! And the wait staff and the bartenders!”

“Shots for everybody! She-Wolf Pack is buying!” she announces.

The 12th episode of “Fuller House,” entitled “Save the Dates,” shows Kimmy Gibbler and Stephanie Tanner locking lips for several seconds until Gibbler’s ex-husband pulls them apart, and another contains a scene with heavy sexual references. Cameron Bure took down a photograph of her lingerie-type dress in the “Dirty Dancing” episode last month after fans quickly expressed concern.

“I am so sad! I thought @Candacecbure stands up for Christian values?!?!” one commenter wrote. “This makes me so sad. I can’t let my kids watch this. Is this how you dress?”

After taking issue with “negativity” and those who engage in “religious debates” over her last Saturday, on Wednesday, Cameron Bure posted a photograph of herself kissing another man who is not her husband.

In “Fuller House,” Cameron Bure is torn between two men as lovers, and in “Secrets, Lies, and Firetrucks,” she runs into the arms of a divorced man named Matt and kisses him passionately. As she turns to walk away, he grabs her arm and they kiss again.

“DJ and Matt, sitting in a tree,” she wrote, asking, “Who’s team are you on?”

“Team Candace’s real husband,” one follower replied.

In September, Cameron Bure had acknowledged that the show was “racier” than “Full House,” but asserted that it would be fine for children to watch.

“Tonally, the show is very much the same, but it’s updated,” she told TVLine. “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.”

    Honestly…..if she posted it, then she should expect the results. No matter how much she dislikes it, when you are in the public eye, you are accountable for what you say and do. If she is going to blatantly talk about her faith….then the ‘walk’ has to match the ‘talk’.

    • Josey

      They do print “good news” articles too, I’ve read them.

      • storie

        Glad to hear it! =)

    • The church

      Yes exactly!!!

  • Guest

    She’s always been a walking contradiction. I feel sorry for her children.

    • The church

      Yes she needs prayer and if you watch her on some of her other movies she does have one foot in the world and one in the word… But god says PICK because you either love one or despise the other … You can’t have two like the two men she was making out with while she is a married woman in real life..

  • My amazement of the level of the journalistic integrity found in this article is only surpassed by my awe at the judgemental and condemning attitude demonstrated by the people cited within.

  • Becky

    As an auntie, I’d never let my niece and nephew watch this secular show.

      There is always 7th Heaven. Oh wait…the dad was a child molester in REAL life. This is all pretend on a paid subscription service. Vote with you dollars. That’s all.

      • barbie5944

        I am not responsible for the private lives of anyone except my own…what the dad did in privately was his own business even though he portrayed differently on screen…BUT with Mrs. Bure my children loved the older version of Full House and when you try to mix our current culture with one 20-30 years ago it is a disaster…for sure…choose this day whom you will serve…can’t have it both ways without problems…

        • kate lynn

          Did you seriously just say someone molesting a child is their own business?…

  • Danielle Theresa Battisti

    The pressure of hollywood must be great! I am disappointed and Jesus said a lot of negative things to people who claimed to follow Him yet did not show it with how they lived. This “negative” excuse is just as bad as the “don’t judge me” excuse.

    She might want to consider how she is representing Jesus. I haven’t and won’t watch the show but sounds like the feedback that ppl are giving doesn’t represent Christ. Negativity when given in reproof isn’t a bad thing, the Lord chastises those He loves. And as far as productive conversation she is referring to as not being respectful, then repent and stop promoting the show which is why there is conversation over it.

    • The church

      Yes not only should she watch how she is representing Jesus but how she is promoting the devils work … The devil attacks the Christians but the truth will set us free and yes it needs to be discussed with love and we are praying for her. She is not even sorry or anything she just wants us to not post the Christian remarks under the picture. Why do you think that is?

  • acontraryview

    Wow. Slow news day, huh?

    • AndrewDowling

      Slow porn day, huh?

      • acontraryview

        I have no idea, but I’ll take your word for it.

  • ZF911

    It saddens me that Netflix would knowingly publish a show so inappropriate and wordly. It feels like sin is trying to invade at every corner, disguised as a family friendly television show. I will turn my eyes to holier things, such as season two of Marvel’s daredevil, a show about a good Christian man clinging to his faith while trying to make the world a better place.

    • barbie5944

      Really it is morally wrong in so many ways…we need to see morally right shows…with moral right values…just tell it like it is…it is not family friendly…

    • kate lynn

      Do you really expect Netflix, a company not outwardly run by Christians, to follow Christian priciples? This isn’t Chick-fil-a…
      And…Jw how you reached the conclusion that Daredevil, which I had to stop watching because the violence made my stomach churn, is holy, much less more appropriate than Fuller House?? Just curious.

  • david

    hell is pretty negative but Jesus preached on it. if you do not like what Jesus taught , the negative and the good, then you are not His follower . get real with your faith and repent from sin.

  • Doone00

    Is this seriously what Christians argue about? Wake up and realize that there are way more important things in the world to be worried about right now.

      False Christians need to be exposed.

        Judge not lest ye be judged

        • Guest

          “For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?” (1 Corinthians 5:12).

      • How do you know that is what is going on here, Guest? Do you know Ms. Bure personally to say that she is a “false Christian”? Were you there when she made the choice to be a part of Fuller House, and started getting the scripts? Did she give you a call to talk about her thoughts on the direction the show is taking, and how it is liable to influence her career and reputation? Did you sit and pray with her about her career, and her potential influence as a Christian in Hollywood?

        Or, are you basing this 1 Cor 5:12 judgment on a few gossipy internet stories?

        Just wondering.

        • Guest

          Candace has done what she’s done publicly. By her fruits I know her. You should, too. And yes, she did used to live here when her husband still had a hockey career.

          • So, I know Jackie Chan, because he lives in Hong Kong, and I live just across the bay bridge from Hong Kong? Cool!

          • Guest

            Naw, she lived here. 🙂

        • barbie5944

          She certainly is a Christian…I think the question is to all of us are you a good example…just sayin..her relationship with God is between her and God but she is out there in the public that is where the problem comes in…

  • Sherry

    Sorry Candace, but your show is NOT something I would want to sit and watch with kids and feel comfortable about it. As Christians, we should be standing up for Christian values and morals, not becoming secular to please the world. The bible says we cannot serve two master. We live in this world but should not be part of this world. I am keeping you in my prayers.

    • The church

      Exactly!! I love what you said

  • Stanley Joon-ya Rodrigues

    Didn’t know it was a Christian show. I for one love it because they’re acting like young adults and the show is corny as ever. You can’t please everyone so don’t like it, don’t watch it, it’s that simple.

    • barbie5944

      Well said…it is because Mrs. Bure has come from a line of public speaking and acting family that she is gets flack…I am not letting my 10 year old granddaughter watch this…my choice…I look for wholesome because that is what is so lacking in our current culture…

  • tigersfan61

    I’m sorry but this show is not for children…

    • TheBottomline4This

      Nor for Christian adults. It isn’t edifying at all. It’s not that we can’t handle the subject matters, but what’s the point in watching it past it just being mindless entertainment.

  • Very sad. –I guess we all now know why it is that The View hired her.

  • Candace has the right to act anyway she wants, whether I agree with her moral choices or not. The main issue I have is that Netflix has rated this show a ‘G’ rating which shows up in kids programming… I think a PG or PG-13 Rating is more appropriate considering the story lines, innuendo, etc.

  • TheBottomline4This

    We can judge her or anyone else as long as we don’t do so hypocritically. Candace seems to be a compromiser. She is in the world, but of the world in a lot of ways. She doesn’t listen to any Biblical comments against her. She is closed to it, which is telling. Of course she can’t address each complaint, but some of the things she has said/done indicates she pretty much ignores anything someone is trying to point out to her. She seems to be compromiser a little more each time she continues to stay on the path she is on. I hope she is convicted someday by the Holy Spirit to stop compromising. Some of her choices are not rightly, Biblically reflecting Jesus. (To those who may ask for examples of her compromise, use Google please. You’ll eventually run across some stuff)
