JoJo Siwa Won't Talk to Candace Cameron Again Following 'Hurtful' Take on 'Traditional Marriage'

The 'Dance Moms' alum can't imagine herself talking to the 'Full House' actress again after the latter shows support for projects that 'purposely exclude' same-sex couples.

AceShowbiz - JoJo Siwa doubts she'll "ever" talk to Candace Cameron Bure again. The 19-year-old star made the remarks after recently slamming Candace for her comments about "traditional marriage" as she highlighted the fact Christian conservative network Great American Family (GAF) - where she is chief content officer - won't be featuring same-sex couples in their festive movies.

"We have not [talked], and I don't think we ever will again," JoJo has told PEOPLE magazine. Noting she wants "everybody to do what they want to do," she was angry with Candace for trying to exclude LGBTQ+ couples.

She added, "That's what's f***** up. You not liking gay marriage, do your thing girl. You being religious, do your thing girl. Of course, I would want everybody to do what they want to do. But to purposely exclude someone because of who they love, that's s*****."

The 46-year-old "Full House" star sparked backlash after explaining she left the Hallmark Channel to work with GAM, noting the latter - which was founded by ex-Hallmark CEO Bill Abbott - wanted to "keep traditional marriage at the core."

JoJo shared a screenshot of Candace's comment and wrote on Instagram, "Honestly, I can't believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with intention of excluding LGBTQIA+, but then also talk about it in the press. This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people."

JoJo - who came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community last year and is currently dating Avery Cyrus - received support from Candace's "Fuller House" co-star Jodie Sweetin. The actress commented on her friend's post, "You know I love you [heart emojis] (sic)."

During her interview with the Wall Street Journal, Candace was asked if the network would feature same-sex couples in its Christmas movies. She said, "I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core."

CEO Bill added about focusing on same-sex couples, "It's certainly the year 2022, so we're aware of the trends. There's no whiteboard that says, 'Yes, this' or 'No, we'll never go here.' "
