Candace Cameron Bure apologizes to JoJo Siwa for red carpet interaction

Candace Cameron Bure apologized to JoJo Siwa and says that their feud has been squashed.

The former “Full House” star, 46, took to Instagram Tuesday to say that she reached out to Siwa, 19, and asked her why she called her the “rudest celebrity” she’d ever met.

During their conversation, Cameron Bure learned she had snubbed Siwa when the then-preteen dancer asked her for a picture at the 2016 premiere of “Fuller House.”

The actress told Siwa, who was 12 at the time, “Not right now,” and then proceeded to “take pictures with other people.”

Cameron Bure, who felt “crummy” hearing the story, apologized numerous times for “breaking” the child star’s “heart.”

She added that, as a mother, she felt even worse for likely hurting Siwa’s mom’s feelings in the process.

However, Cameron Bure said Siwa acknowledged during their chat that it was no longer “a big deal” and even felt somewhat “silly” telling her the story.

Siwa apparently had no idea her remarks would spark controversy, which is the “lesson” Bure had for her fans.

The Hallmark actress said, “Even a 10-second trending TikTok video can do damage because our words matter and our actions matter,” regardless of a person’s level of fame or number of followers.

The pair’s unlikely feud began Sunday when Siwa called out Cameron Bure in a viral TikTok video.

The clip showed the YouTuber quickly flashing photos of celebrities to categorize them as the “rudest,” “nicest” and her “crush,” among others.

When it came time to reveal the “rudest celebrity” she’s ever met, the singer showed a photo of Cameron Bure on the set of “Fuller House.”

She captioned the post, “Pool day = exposed hahahha.”

After the unexpected response made headlines, the actress – who is a devout Christian – posted to her Instagram Story the Bible verse Isaiah 26:4, which reads, “Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.”
