A JoJo Siwa TikTok video left Candace Cameron Bure completely baffled when it labeled her the “rudest celebrity” the teenage reality star had ever met. And Candace responded to the drama in the most Biblical way possible!
Candace Cameron Bure is certainly known for being outspoken. The Christian celebrity has never shied away from talking about her faith or conservative values. And she’s certainly never let online trolls and bullies get away with making nasty comments about her or her family.
But she’s never come across as mean-spirited or disrespectful. Even when facing controversy or criticism, Candace Cameron Bure typically does so with grace.
So, it came as a shock when Candace found herself in the crosshairs of the 19-year-old former reality star, actress, singer, and YouTuber, JoJo Siwa.
JoJo Siwa TikTok Calls Out Candace Cameron Bure
JoJo Siwa, who appeared on the show Dance Moms as a child, shared her opinions on different celebrities in a video on TikTok. And when flashing a photo of Candace Cameron Bure, JoJo included a caption stating, “Rudest celebrity I’ve met.”
The TikTok ended up going viral and JoJo’s label left Candace shocked and confused.
“Honestly, I was shocked when I saw the TikTok on Sunday and had no idea where it came from,” the Christian celebrity explained on her own social media account.
Hurt and stunned, Candace Cameron Bure followed the advice found in Matthew 18:15:
“If your brother sins against you, go, show him his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained back your brother.”
The Christian star began looking for a way to speak directly with JoJo Siwa about her TikTok video. And once she had the opportunity to speak with the 19-year-old, she immediately asked how she had wronged the young lady.
“What did I do to you?” Candace asked JoJo.
JoJo Siwa, who never expected her TikTok video to go viral, hesitantly described an encounter with Candace from years ago.
JoJo Siwa Shares Story Behind Her TikTok
At 11 years old, JoJo asked Candace Cameron Bure for a photo when running into her on the red carpet. The Fuller House star reportedly responded with, “not right now.”
Even though Candace didn’t remember the incident, she immediately took responsibility for hurting the young girl’s feelings.
“JoJo, I’m so sorry,” she said. “Please know, especially as a mom, it breaks my heart that I made you feel that way.”
Candace said the conversation with JoJo Siwa about her TikTok video went very well and there were no hard feelings on either side. But the Christian celebrity took it as an opportunity to remind everyone to use their words wisely because they have power and influence.
“I think the lesson that we can learn is to be mindful that, no matter how many followers you have, even a 10-second trending TikTok video can do damage because our words matter and our actions matter,” Candace explained. “Whether you have 50 million followers, or 500 followers, or five followers, we all influence the people around us.”
