Candace Cameron Bure’s Perfect Response to Being Called a ‘Homophobic Republican’
“Fuller House” actress Candace Cameron Bure has responded to a popular drag queen’s public name-calling with nothing but love.
Roy Haylock, also known as Bianca Del Rio, is a well-known drag queen who won the sixth season of “Rupaul’s Drag Race” on VH1. He is a vocal critic of people of faith and decided to target Bure on Instagram last week, calling her a “homophobic Republican.”
Haylock reposted a picture of Bure wearing a T-Shirt that said “Not Today Satan” with a caption saying “IF ONLY THIS HOMOPHOBIC REPUBLICAN KNEW.” Haylock is known for popularizing the phrase “Not Today Satan” during his time on the show.
Bure is no stranger to criticisms for her conservative Christian views, and she saw the attack as an opportunity to share God’s love.
She wrote: “Why do you have to be nasty to me? You don’t know me or my heart. I’m not homophobic and always sad when people think otherwise. Loving Jesus doesn’t mean I hate gay people or anyone. You sent a bunch of hateful people to my page writing horrible things. I hope next time you’ll spread love and kindness, even when you disagree with people. Sending you love and wish you all the best. Truly. – Candace.”
This is not the first time Bure has defended her Christian faith in love.
She spoke out on “The View” in support for the Christian bakers from Oregon who were ordered to pay a $135,000 fine for declining to bake a cake for a gay wedding.
Despite her concerns surrounding the debate between religious freedom and LGBT values, Bure isn’t afraid to integrate LGBT-related issues into the television shows she stars in.
