Candace Cameron Bure clarifies JoJo Siwa’s rude claims

JoJo Siwa, who joined a viral trend, recently sparked new controversy when she shared in a TikTok clip that the “rudest celebrity I’ve ever met” was “Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure. The video, which has been viewed over 14 million times, also shows Siwa responding to prompts of “celebrity crush” and “nicest celebrity I’ve ever met” by flashing images of Zendaya and Miley Cyrus, respectively. Fans weren’t surprised by the stars Siwa complimented, but the Bure reveal left many wanting more. “Storytime on candance???” wrote one follower. Another fan responded to the former, sharing her own allegedly awkward encounter with Bure. “We brought our notebooks to her and asked her for an autograph and smiled and looked straight and into the eyes and said no,” wrote the user named “Rachel.”

With Siwa’s whopping 42.4 million TikTok followers, the video obviously grabbed more than a few headlines. Bure didn’t immediately respond to Siwa’s claims, and a day later shared a cryptic Instagram story as she quoted the Bible verse from Isaiah 26:4, “Trust in the Lord always,” per Cosmopolitan. However, on July 26, the actress finally addressed the allegations with a video of her own.

Candace Cameron Bure spilled the tea on her and JoJo Siwa

Candance Cameron Bure and JoJo Siwa are “all good” now. In a July 26 Instagram video, a smiling Bure revealed that she and Siwa had “a great conversation” that morning and cleared the air about Siwa’s labeling of Bure as “rude.” Bure was initially “shocked” to hear this and claimed she reached out to the Nickelodeon star “immediately” through mutual friends, publicists and DMs.

According to Bure, Siwa allegedly just dismissed her video as a “silly TikTok trend.” When Bure asked what she’d done in the past to upset Siwa (“I just remember we met on the ‘Kelly Clarkson Show,’ and it went really great,”” Bure recalled, she said Siwa), the latter said clearly. “I met you at the ‘Fuller House’ premiere when I was 11,” Siwa reportedly shared. “I came up to you and said, ‘Can I have a picture with you?’ and you said to me, ‘Not now.’ And then you just kept doing what you were doing and taking pictures with other people.” Bure reportedly responded, “I feel lousy. JoJo, I’m so sorry,” the Full House graduate captioned a reminder on Instagram -Follower added that “even a 10-second trending TikTok video can do harm because our words count.”

Bure’s followers warmly accepted her apology, with one commenting that she met Bure “years ago in NYC” and recalled that Bure was “one of the absolutely FRIENDLIEST people I’ve ever met.”
