I still have a hand! Candace Cameron BureThe experience on social media drew a lot of reactions, but she was shocked when fans didn’t understand her take on the “power of the Holy Spirit” video.
“It’s quite funny. In fact, I didn’t expect the TikTok video to have the reaction it did at all,” Bure, 45, said exclusively. We Weekly while promoting her new Hallmark movie Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Honeymoon, Honey Murder, premiering on Sunday, August 22.
Even if the Full house alum admitted that the backlash “caught me by surprise” she still wanted to use this situation as a way to start a conversation with her followers.
“I brought it up because I’m very honest and open on all my social media,” the actress told We. “So because I was apparently wrong and I was surprised. I just had to say to everyone, like, ‘Oh, OK. I thought that was cool. I guess not.
Bure may have tried to clarify what she meant, but she didn’t consider it a “formal apology” as it was just a difference of opinion between her and her fans.
“I just feel like I have very open communication with the people who follow me. So it was actually pretty laid back to address that,” she added.
Late last month, Bure posted a clip of her lip-syncing to “Jealous Girl,” while holding her Bible. An accompanying message read: “When they do not know the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Following the social media backlash, the Hallmark star addressed her intentions with trending TikTok.
“I just got home and read a lot of messages that were unhappy with my last Instagram post which was a TikTok video. And I don’t usually apologize for these things, but a lot of you thought it was weird, and I’m sorry,” the Aurora Teagarden star shared via her Instagram Stories in July. “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 amazing.
the Dancing with the stars alum also responded to people who called the video too sexual.
“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,” she noted. at the time. “So I guess it didn’t work, but I deleted it.”
Bure explained that his intention was just to be funny.
“Maybe I was just trying to be too cool or relevant in a biblical way that didn’t work,” she added. “Anyway, most of you clearly didn’t like it, but there was a small percentage of you who appreciated what I did and understood my intention. But anyway, here we go. Now I know what you don’t like.
Since then, the old To see host, who shares daughter Natasha, 22, and sons Lev, 21, and Maksim, 19, with her husband Valéri BureRecount We that she started wondering what should appear on her social media.
“I guess things all the time now, especially if it’s a bit out of my comfort zone and I guess that’s what TikTok is for me,” the California native shared with We. “I watch my kids do it, or at least Natasha do it, for that particular one, and I was trying to do my own iteration of what she did.”
Although Candace used her daughter’s videos for inspiration, she realized that each social media platform should be approached differently.
“It’s like TikTok is this other being that I’m still figuring out, you know?” the More complete house detailed alum. “So when it comes to something like that, I’m going to guess myself, but on some things, no, I’m not going to guess myself at all.”
One thing Candace has gotten right to is the Aurora Teagarden mystery films, though the plot twists continue to surprise her.
“There were only a few times I figured out who did it in the second act of the movie, but most of the time I’m guessing with everyone, because I’m reading the script for the first time,” she said. Recount We. “It’s always great fun.”
She added, “That’s when I know if it’s going to be, like, a really good movie — [is] if I can’t understand by reading, because I’m the amateur detective, then it’s going to be difficult for the public.
Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Honeymoon, Honey Murder will premiere on Hallmark Movies + Mysteries this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
