Another day, another Candace Cameron Bure clap-back.
After defending herself and her family following her brother Kirk Cameron’s decision to go maskless caroling amid the COVID-19 pandemic back in December, the “Full House” actress is clearing the air about who she follows on social media.
On Thursday, January 21, the Hallmark star took to Instagram Story to explain her decision to follow accounts with diverse viewpoints and beliefs.
“I read several comments from people … that were disappointed or told me that they were unfollowing me because of the people I choose to follow on Instagram,” she said. “And it’s always strange to me because I follow a very broad range of people — politically, within my work industry and then personal friends and things I like. But a follow does not mean an endorsement.”
Her response comes after she received backlash for following both red and blue politicians including President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Barack Obama, Candace Owens, Melania Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and more.
The 44-year-old went on to state that giving someone a “follow” doesn’t necessarily mean she agrees with “everything they say or do.”
“It just means I follow a broad range of people so that I have perspective,” she explained. “I want to know what’s going on in the world, I want to hear different sides of the argument. I follow people in entertainment that I don’t necessarily agree with or act the same way, but I want to hear what our society, what culture is dishing out.”
“I follow left and right, but it doesn’t make my blood boil,” she added. “I don’t get angry at it. So maybe it’s healthy for some of you not to follow people you disagree with. But it doesn’t upset me. It just gives me perspective.”
Last month, the California native told people to “do better” after her family was criticized for a Christmas photo.
“Do you think it’s funny to criticize someone’s children? To make jokes about them? To critique our poses? The direction in which we are looking? Our physical appearance and facial expressions?” she wrote on Facebook.
