Candace Cameron Bure is apologizing to fans after posting a controversial video on Instagram.
The Fuller House actress took to Instagram Story on Wednesday, July 28, to clear the air regarding a since-deleted Instagram clip about the Holy Spirit.
“I just came home and read a lot of messages that were not happy with my latest Instagram video post that was a TikTok video,” she said in her apology video. “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.”
The video, filmed on TikTok and reposted to her Instagram account, features Bure lip-syncing Lana Del Rey’s “Jealous Girl” with the caption, “When they don’t know the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Bure mouthed the words, “Baby I’m a gangsta too and it takes two to tango/you don’t want to dance with me, dance with me,” while leaning toward the camera, gazing at her Bible that she held up in the clip.
“So many of you thought 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,” she explained.
She also noted that she got the idea from her daughter, Natasha Bure, who she shares with husband Valeri Bure.
Bure's 22-year-old daughter had just used the same audio clip on her own TikTok page, which the mom-of-three explained as her inspiration to make her own version of the trending audio.
“Maybe I was just trying to be too cool or relevant in a Biblical way that didn’t work? Most of you didn’t like it, clearly,” the Full House alum said in the clip. “But there was a small percentage of you that appreciated what I did and understood my intention.”
Bure noted in the video that she deleted the reposted clip from Instagram, but the video is still live on her TikTok page.
