Candace Cameron Bure wants you to know that words hurt, even if they are simply meant to be funny. In one of the more unlikely feuds in the Hollywood circuit, you may have seen headlines talking about JoJo Siwa, of Dance Moms fame, and Candace Cameron Bure, of Full House fame, being pitted against one another.
Well now, Bure is “spilling the tea” and letting the world know what this is all about. According to the actress, this all started with 19-year-old JoJo creating a TikTok.
JoJo Siwa Called Candace Cameron Bure the Rudest Celebrity She Knows, Now Bure Is Speaking Out
The TikTok was her response to a trend in which people flash photos of certain celebrities. One of the questions is “who is the rudest celebrity?”
Well, in JoJo’s video, she opted to flash a photo of Bure. And because JoJo has a very dedicated fan base, they came for Bure.
Unable to recall why JoJo labeled her as rude, Bure made the effort to reach out to JoJo and clear the air. “Honestly, I was shocked when I saw the TikTok on Sunday,” Bure explained from her car. “[I had] no idea where it came from.”
Bure said the conversation she eventually had with JoJo was great from start to finish and that this all stemmed from when JoJo first met Bure when JoJo was just 11 years old. “What happened,” Bure said she asked of JoJo, to which she replied, “I didn’t think this was going to go viral and they were going to pick that up. It was such a silly TikTok trend. I didn’t think it was a big deal.”
As Bure continued, she didn’t recall the first time she met JoJo in person. In fact, she recalled a different meeting when Bure and JoJo were guests on The Kelly Clarkson Show together, a meeting Bure and JoJo agreed went well.
As JoJo explained to Bure, during their second meeting JoJo saw a different, kinder, more personable side of Bure, but it was their meeting on the red carpet of the Fuller House premiere that left a bad taste in JoJo’s mouth.
“I met you at the Fuller House premiere and I was 11 years old and we were all on the red carpet,” JoJo explained to Bure. “I had come up to you and asked for a picture. You said to me, ‘Not right now.’ And then proceeded to do what you were doing and take pictures with other people on the red carpet.”
Bure admitted she fiercely apologized for dissing JoJo at that moment. And JoJo admitted that she now gets it and that she really doesn’t hold that grudge anymore. But Bure continued saying she gets how that rubbed JoJo the wrong way, “I broke your 11-year-old heart,” Bure told JoJo.
Bure said she and JoJo are now in a good place. However, Candace Cameron Bure made a point to turn this all into a session, saying “no matter how many followers you have, even a 10-second TikTok can cause damage. Our words matter…”
Thankfully, it seems just as fast as the feud started, it ended as well. Several of Bure’s famous acquaintances sent encouraging comments as well.
“Candace. I so agree,” Amy Roloff wrote. “It’s too bad something like that had to show up on [TikTok]. I don’t get that nearly like you may but sometimes when we’re in our element, working, in public, out with friends, family, we may not be able to stop for every single person.”
“We do our best. Like you, I so enjoy meeting others, hearing their stories, taking photos… sometimes there’s just not enough time to take a moment for everyone and We don’t intentionally not do it. It happens though. I have a harder time when I’m with others or my friends and someone will interrupt and expect we drop whatever we are doing or saying to others for them instead of just waiting a few moments so I have more time to chat with them. All of us impact others with our words and actions and we do our best.”
Tori Spelling added, “You are officially my spirit animal! So eloquently put. I’m sitting here crying watching this video. Rings soooooo true. You are truly an inspiration! Love you. Xo.”
