Bure responded to the controversy by blaming the media for “using this opportunity to fan flames of conflict and hate.”

“It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone,” she wrote on Instagram. “It saddens me that the media is often seeking to divide us, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies. But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised.”

Days later, Bure responded on Instagram with a video through which she claimed to have been “shocked” by Siwa’s evaluation, however apologized for her perceived habits nonetheless.

Whereas Siwa has little interest in partaking with Bure immediately, she advised the actor can be greatest served by taking the supply of GLAAD’s president and CEO, Sarah Kate Ellis, to have a conversation relating to LGBTQ inclusion.

“Sarah is a genius when it comes to the gay community,” Siwa instructed Folks. “And I think that Candace having a conversation with her would be not only eye-opening to Candace but eye-opening to a whole world of people who might have those same beliefs.”
