Candace Cameron Bure and JoJo Siwa are on good terms after the actress-singer called out the “Full House” star in a recent TikTok video.
Siwa published a TikTok video with a collection of the “rudest celebrity” she’d ever met. In the six-second video, Siwa displayed a snapshot of Bure on her phone screen for the “rudest celebrity” category.
Bure took to Instagram on Tuesday to respond to Siwa’s post and announce that the situation had been settled. She said that the 19-year-confession old’s was motivated by a red-carpet encounter she had with Siwa some years ago.
What made JoJo Siwa think Candace Cameron Bure was rude?
Bure claimed she was taken aback by Siwa’s TikTok video, which has received 19 million views to far.
“I was startled when I saw the TikTok on Sunday and had no idea where it came from,” Bure said. She said that she immediately contacted Siwa via a mutual acquaintance, her publicist, and direct messaging. “I had no idea what had transpired.”
Bure stated that she was able to contact Siwa on Tuesday morning and that the two had a “wonderful chat,” during which Siwa disclosed that she felt rejected by the Emmy-nominated actress when she attended the red carpet premiere of Bure’s Netflix comedy “Fuller House.”
“‘I met you at the Fuller House premiere when I was 11 years old, and we were all on the red carpet, and I had come up to you and asked, ‘Can I have a picture with you?’ and you said to me, ‘Not right now,’ and then proceeded to do what you were doing and take pictures with other people on the red carpet,” Bure said of Siwa’s explanation.
According to Bure, Siwa informed her that when she shared the video, she didn’t think much of its impact.
“I didn’t expect this was going to become viral and they’d pick it up,” Bure remarked. “It was such a ridiculous TikTok fad that I didn’t believe it was a big problem.”

Siwa informed Bure that the interaction was “really not a huge issue” since she understood the situation as an adult, but Bure claimed she still felt horrible about what happened.
“I destroyed your 11-year-old heart by not taking a photo with you. ‘Ugh, I feel awful.'” Bure stated that she informed Siwa. “I’m really sorry, JoJo.”
Bure went on to say that the two were “joyful for one another in that we are both cheerful, encouraging individuals.”
“I told JoJo how much I’ve always respected her because she’s been a terrific role model because of her optimism throughout her entire life and career,” Bure added.
“So we had all the sensations, and everything was fine, and there was no drama.”
Bure also stated that the digital drama serves as a lesson to be “mindful” of what people say on social media.
“Regardless of how many followers you have, even a 10-second popular TikTok video may inflict damage because our words and deeds count,” Bure said. “And we all impact the people around us, whether we have 50 million followers, 500 followers, or five followers.”
“And there concludes your ‘Full House’ lesson for the day,” Bure said.
