Speaking her truth of the matter. Candace Cameron Bure opened up about the challenges of “cancel culture” immediately after sharing her controversial reasoning behind leaving Hallmark Channel for Fantastic American Media.

Specially when you are a compassionate human being and you have a coronary heart for individuals. … It is essential that we don’t back again down.”
While Cameron Bure admitted that there are “places in the entire world the place persons get seriously persecuted for their faith,” she still does not always truly feel like she can “speak her truth” openly.
“There are some days where I want to transfer to Texas,” the Full Dwelling alum, who is a California resident, quipped to host Julia Jeffress Sadler.
The Christmas Town actress built headlines in November 2022 when she discovered her motive for exiting Hallmark.“My coronary heart wishes to tell stories that have a lot more this means and goal and depth at the rear of them,” she explained to The Wall Avenue Journal’s WSJ. Magazine at the time. “I realized that the folks powering Great American Household have been Christians that really like the Lord and wished to advertise faith programming and great family enjoyment.”

“It certainly breaks my coronary heart that anyone would at any time feel I deliberately would want to offend and damage any individual,” she shared. “It saddens me that the media is typically seeking to divide us, even all over a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas films. But, given the harmful local climate in our lifestyle proper now, I shouldn’t be astonished. We require Xmas much more than at any time.”
Despite her endeavours, Cameron Bure’s controversy ongoing to make headlines when Neal Bledsoe declared he was stepping away from GAC in support of the LGBTQIA+ local community.
“I are not able to go on with business as normal. I are not able to take consolation from, nor will I give refuge to, these who justification exclusion and market division in any way, shape, or kind. Absolutely everyone is entitled to their beliefs, and these are mine: the new reviews created by leadership at Terrific American Household are hurtful, mistaken, and replicate an ideology that prioritizes judgment over adore,” the actor, 41, told Variety in a November 2022 statement. “I was elevated as a Christian, and imagine in the critical message of enjoy and forgiveness. That stated, I could by no means forgive myself for continuing my connection with a community that actively chooses to exclude the LGBTQIA+ local community.”
