“Fuller House” actress Candace Cameron Bure issued an apology after making a video on TikTok meant to convey the power of the Holy Spirit but instead offended and confused a number of her Instagram fans who found it “seductive” and “weird.”
In the video, she is holding a Bible while lip-syncing a Lana Del Rey song “Jealous Girl.” The inspiration for the video came from Bure’s 22-year-old daughter Natasha. However, the message of strength and faith that she meant to convey was lost as her five million-plus followers saw her dress in cutoffs swaying seductively to the music. Many considered it bizarre and a poor testimony to her Christian faith.
“Baby, I’m a gangster too and it takes two to tango / You don’t wanna’ dance with me, dance with me,” the devout Christian sings while leaning over a table lifting a Bible and clutching it to her chest with a smile.
“When they don’t know the power of the Holy Spirit,” was written over the top of the video display.
Bure later wrote on Instagram that she had deleted the video from her page because of all the negative feedback she got over it. Her followers mistakenly believed she was trying to use sex appeal in the video as a come-on which disrespected her Christian faith.
“I just came home and read a lot of messages that were not happy with my latest Instagram post that was a TikTok video,” she noted. “And I usually don’t apologize for these things, but a lot of you thought it was weird, and I’m sorry. That was not my intention. I was using a very specific clip from TikTok and applying it to the power of the Holy Spirit, which is incredible.”
Bure proclaimed that she was a lousy actress. That she had actually meant to convey strength, not sexiness in the video.
“And so many of you thought that I was trying to be seductive, which clearly means I’m not a very good actress because I was trying to be strong, not sexy or seductive,” she explained laughing. “So I guess that didn’t work, but I deleted it.”
“I was trying to do my own version of it with the Bible and talk about the Holy Spirit that basically nothing can trump the Holy Spirit and we only know that by reading the Bible. Maybe I was just trying to be too cool or relevant in a Biblical way that didn’t work,” Bure concluded. “Anyway, most of you didn’t like it, clearly, but there was a small percentage of you that appreciated what I did and understood my intention. But anyway, it’s gone. Now I know what you don’t like.”

Bure made a similar faux pas when it comes to her Christian faith last year. In September of 2020, she was hammered for sharing a PDA-filled image on Instagram that featured her husband fondling her breast.
“For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband’s hand on my boob — my husband of 24 years — thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it’s my husband,” she claimed at the time. “We have so much fun together.”
The actress recently stated that she believes sex is considered too taboo in the Christian community.
“So sometimes there’s a view about sex that — within the Christian community — that I get really sad about,” she remarked on the Confessions Of A Crappy Christian Podcast. “Because if we are to promise ourselves for one another and preach saving yourself for marriage, then sex needs to be celebrated within marriage and it’s not to be shameful.”
