Candace Cameron Bure has apologized for a video her followers found too ‘sexy’.
Earlier this week, the fuller house star, who is a devout Christian, posted a TikTok set to Lana Del Rey’s sultry song “Jealous Girl,” which reads “Baby, I’m a gangsta too, and it takes two to tango.”
Bure captioned the video, “If They Don’t Know the Power of the Holy Spirit,” and held up a Bible. In addition to publishing the video on TikTok, she shared the video on Instagram, where she has more than 5 million followers.
Her Instagram followers, it seems, did not get the intent — which prompted Bure to remove the video and post a lengthy apology on her Instagram story.
“I used a very specific clip from TikTok and applied it to the power of the Holy Spirit, which is incredible,” says the Make it or break it actress explained. “And so many of you thought I was trying to be seductive, which clearly means I’m not a very good actress because I was trying to be strong, not sexy or seductive.”
She added that it was her daughter Natasha who inspired the video, as she had previously shared her own rendition of the TikTok meme. Natasha’s version reads, “If he raises his voice to you, but you were raised by a Russian NHL player,” referring to her father and Bure’s husband Valeri Bure.
Bure admitted in her apology, “Maybe I was just trying to be too cool or relevant in a biblical way, which didn’t work.”
Although the actress has removed the video from Instagram, it can still be viewed on TikTok.
While Bure insisted she wasn’t trying to be sexy to her Holy Ghost TikTok, she recently spoke about how she believes sex is considered too taboo in the Christian community.
“So sometimes there is an opinion about sex that – within the Christian community – makes me very sad,” she shared on the Confessions of a crappy Christian podcast, which is hosted by Blake Guichet. “Because if we have to promise ourselves to each other and preach that we save ourselves before marriage, then sex within marriage should be celebrated and it’s not to be shameful.”
While Bure may want her social media followers to approve of her content, what she shares about her family doesn’t. The mother of three became confused after a family Christmas photo she posted was mocked.
In February, she told Yahoo Life, “Anytime you attack my kids, I’m never going to sit back and watch that,” Bure says. “I loved that photo…I loved that it showed my kids’ personalities…so it felt very authentic to me. But you know, when you start talking about my family, of course you get a kick me, because I will always protect my children.”
