Full House alum Jodie Sweetin has come out in support of JoJo Siwa amid her clash with Candace Cameron Bure.

The 40-year-old who played Cameron Bure's on-screen sister has voiced her support for the So You Think You Can Dance judge after Cameron Bure made some controversial comments about marriage during a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal.

In the piece, the Christmas Under Wraps actress explained how "new leadership" prompted her to leave Hallmark and join the Christian-led conservative network, Great American Family.

"I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment," she told the outlet. "I think that [the company] will keep traditional marriage at the core."

Upon hearing the insensitive comments, JoJo Siwa, best known for her bright and bubbly personality online, came out to slam Cameron Bure as "rude" and "disrespectful."

In an emotional Instagram post highlighting a snippet of the comments, the 19-year-old wrote: "Honestly, I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with intention of excluding LGBTQIA+ [people] but then also talk about it in the press. This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people."

It wasn't long before the YouTuber's comment section was filled with praise from other celebrities, including Cameron Bure's Fuller House cast mate Jodie Sweetin, who wrote: "You know I love you," alongside two red heart emojis.

Disney actress Mollee Gray left a comment suggesting Cameron Bure's recent remarks were the only way she could stay "relevant".

And the criticism of Cameron Bure's comments weren't limited to Instagram.

Hilarie Burton took to Twitter to label her a "bigot."

"Bigot," she tweeted. "I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy. But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank."

"Now they’re just openly admitting their bigotry. I called this s*** out years ago when Abbott was at Hallmark. Glad they dumped him," the One Tree Hill star added, alluding to a 2020 incident that saw the former CEO of Hallmark Media, Bill Abbott, step down after pulling an ad that featured a lesbian couple.

"Being LGBTQ isn’t a 'trend'," Burton continued. "That guy and his network are disgusting. You too Candy. There is nothing untraditional about same-sex couples."

So far, there has been no further response from Cameron Bure, but given the nature of her comments, I don't think anyone will be in the mood for forgiveness this holiday season.
