Candace Cameron Bure has apologized after critics called a recent TikTok video, in which she holds a Bible while lip-syncing Lana Del Rey tunes, “too sexy.”
“… I don’t usually apologize for these things, but a lot of you thought it was weird and I’m sorry,” Bure, 45, said in a video on his Instagram story Wednesday. ” It was not my intention. “
In the video, the actress – a devout Christian who often discusses religion with her followers on social media – is seen lip-syncing to Del Rey’s song “Jealous Girl” while picking up a Bible and watching the camera.
She captioned the video, “When They Don’t Know the Power of the Holy Spirit.
Bure explained that she didn’t mean harm and that she wasn’t trying to look sexy in any way.
“I was using a very specific clip from TikTok and applying it to the power of the Holy Spirit, which is amazing,” she said. “And a lot of you thought I was trying to be attractive, which clearly means I’m not a very good actress because I was trying to be strong, not sexy or attractive. “
In the clip, she syncs the lyrics, “Baby I’m a gangster too and it takes two to dance / You don’t wanna dance with me, dance with me / Honey, I’m in love with you. “
The former sitcom star said she made the video after seeing her 22-year-old daughter, Natasha Bure, use the same audio, and stressed that she was trying to have a religious discussion.
“I was trying to make my own version of it with the Bible and talk about the Holy Spirit and the power of the Holy Spirit, but basically nothing can trump the Holy Spirit and we can’t. know that by reading the Bible, ”she said. .
But Bure admitted that her post was not what she had planned and she ultimately deleted the video from Instagram, although it remains on TikTok.
“Maybe I was just trying to be too cool or relevant in a Biblical way that didn’t work,” she said. “Anyway, most of you clearly didn’t like it, but there was a small percentage of you who enjoyed what I did and understood my intention. But anyway, it’s gone. Now I know what you don’t like.
This is not the first time that some of Bure’s devotees have criticized the actress. In September 2020, fans slammed Bure for posting a photo in which her husband, Valeri Bure, was seen grabbing one of her breasts. But this time, she defended her actions instead of apologizing.
” It is my husband. We have so much fun together, ”she said at the time. “He can touch me whenever he wants, and I hope he will. This is what a healthy and good marriage and relationship is. “
She added, “I’m sorry if this offended you – I’m actually not sorry. I’m glad we’re having fun together after so many years. He can touch me all day.
Bure was open about her feelings towards Instagram critics, saying in January, “Look, on social media everyone gets criticized, and if you’re a celebrity it comes with the territory and I can handle it. ”
