Traditional marriage only advocate Candace Cameron Bure issued a statement in response to accusations that she attempted to have a queer character cut from Fuller House.

The claims were brought to light by Miss Benny who played Casey, a gay character, on the Netflix series.

While Miss Benny never named Bure as the "Tanner sister" who "was not for the girls," she did use the hashtag #cameronbure accompanying a TikTok that elaborated on the allegations.

In the TikTok, she explained:

“I remember I got sat down by the writers and the studio to basically warn me how this person allegedly was trying to get the character removed and not have a queer character on the show."
"I was also sort of warned and prepared that this person's fan base might be encouraged to target me specifically."

Miss Benny also added:

"[It] continuously blows my mind how queer people, specifically queer young adults and queer children, are being targeted and having to advocate for themselves against adults.”

In response, Bure issued a statement to People, denying any claims that she asked for the removal of Miss Benny's character.

“I never asked Miss Benny’s character to be removed from ‘Fuller House’ and did not ask the writers, producers or studio executives to not have queer characters on the show."
“‘Fuller House’ has always welcomed a wide range of characters."
"I thought Miss Benny did a great job as ‘Casey’ on the show. We didn’t share any scenes together, so we didn’t get a chance to talk much while filming on set."
"I wish Miss Benny only the best.”

But given Bure's history of her outspoken anti-LGBTQ+ views and her very conservative Christian beliefs, people on social media weren't buying her statement.

Aside from that particular experience, however, Miss Benny shared being on the show was overall very positive and even led to more opportunities, such as being cast in Netflix's Glamorous.

"Positive is that I had a really fun time actually shooting the show with all the other actors who were willing to talk to me, and the show ultimately led to me being on 'Glamorous' on Netflix."
"So, everything happens for a reason."
