Candace Cameron Bure is serving as the chief creative officer of the Great American Family (GAF) network, and just made an unsavory comment to the Wall Street Journal about the network keeping "traditional marriage" at its core.

Princess Diana refused to wear shoes higher than 2 inches because of then-Prince Charles' ego when they were married: book

  Princess Diana refused to wear shoes higher than 2 inches because of then-Prince Charles' ego when they were married: book In "The Lady Di Look Book," Eloise Moran writes that Diana opted for flats before her marriage to Charles fell apart. Then, "the heels got higher."The princess shared these thoughts on a recording used by journalist Andrew Morton to write the 1992 biography, "Diana: Her True Story.

The comment was made in response to Candace being asked if GAF will "feature same-sex couples as leads in holiday movies." In response, she said, "I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core." Meanwhile, GAF's chief executive Bill Abbott said, "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.'"

Candace was swiftly called out for her remarks—including by JoJo Siwa (who she feuded with earlier this year): "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," JoJo said in a statement on Instagram. "This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people."

Candace's Full House costar Jodie Sweetin supported JoJo in the comments, writing, "You know I love you." Meanwhile, actor Hilarie Burton Morgan also called out Candace, tweeting, "Bigot. I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy. But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank."

FYI, GLAAD's President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis made the following statement about Candace's words:

“It’s irresponsible and hurtful for Candace Cameron Bure to use tradition as a guise for exclusion. I’d love to have a conversation with Bure about my wife, our kids, and our family’s traditions. Bure is out of sync with a growing majority of people of faith, including LGBTQ people of faith, who know that LGBTQ couples and families are deserving of love and visibility. As the company’s Chief Creative Officer, her statement is harmful and insulting to LGBTQ employees, as well as employees with LGBTQ friends and family. If GAC Family’s plan is to intentionally exclude stories about LGBTQ couples, then actors, advertisers, cable and streaming platforms, and production companies should take note and seriously consider whether they want to be associated with a network that holds exclusion as one of its values.”

At this point, Candace doesn't appear to have publicly acknowledged the backlash or apologized about her comments.

This Media Room Is Proof That a Family-Friendly Space Can Be Luxe, Too .
Keia McSwain created a space that's both luxe and family-friendly.That multifunctionality set the stage for her media room in the 2022 Whole Home. McSwain's scheme for this long, narrow space started with a poster from her father’s favorite movie, Across 110th Street, featuring deep greens and orange. Unwilling to compromise coolness, McSwain wrapped the entire space in a luxe, stitched-hide chevron wallcovering from Arte and added a tortoiseshell gold glass pedestal table (for perching one’s drink) at the room’s entrance. “The overall vibe,” she says, “is about warmth and fellowship.
