Candace Cameron Bure went full-on ’Merica throughout a July 4 TikTok final month. Within the video, Bure sports activities an ensemble brimming with nods to the American flag, full with a headscarf topped with stars.
As she exhibits off her over-the-top outfit, she laughs and says, “I mean, c’mon, did you expect anything less from me? Happy Fourth of July!”
Nicely, it appears not everybody was a fan of Bure’s submit — however not as a result of she regarded like a cartoonish embodiment of the Pledge of Allegiance.
Musician Mathew Koma, who’s married to actor Hilary Duff, took situation with Bure’s selection of background music.
Presumably Bure thought the track she selected to play — Bruce Springsteen’s 1986 hit “Born in the U.S.A.” — was an uncomplicated celebration of patriotism and would lend itself to the campiness of her submit.
However Koma identified in his personal TikTok that the upbeat tune has a darker that means than most suspect.
“Yeah, that song you’re playing,” he says in a side-by-side duet submit that options Bure’s July 4 video. “It’s about veterans coming home from Vietnam and being treated like shit. It’s not about the Fourth of July.”
In his 2016 memoir “Born to Run,” Springsteen known as “Born in the U.S.A.” a “protest song.” He was impressed to put in writing it after going to a 1981 profit live performance in Los Angeles for Vietnam veterans, per NPR. The lyrics of the verses describe a person who feels misplaced, enlists, and returns house to a nation that might care much less about his service to the nation. The track’s upbeat refrain is significant as nicely.
“The pride was in the chorus,” Springsteen mentioned to host Terry Gross in a 2005 interview. “In my songs, the spiritual part, the hope part, is in the choruses. The blues and your daily realities are in the details of the verses.”
Bure has not responded to being known as out for her foible — but when she does, right here’s hoping she doesn’t simply reply with a “Full House” GIF with one of many present’s catchphrases.
