Candace Cameron Bure to Popular Drag Queen: ‘Loving Jesus Doesn’t Mean I Hate Gay People’

Candace Cameron-Bure arrives at the Teen Choice Awards 2014 in Los Angeles, California August 10, 2014.

Candace Cameron Bure responded to popular drag queen Bianca Del Rio on an insulting Instagram post which pegged the actress a “homophobic Republican.”

The “Fuller House” star responded on Instagram last week when Bianca Del Rio re-posted a photo of Bure wearing a T-shirt that said “Not Today Satan” with a caption written by Rio stating, “IF ONLY THIS HOMOPHOBIC REPUBLICAN KNEW.”

Roy Haylock, better known as Bianca Del Rio, is a drag queen who won the sixth season of Rupaul’s “Drag Race” which aired on VH1. He decided to pick on Bure because the catchphrase “Not Today Satan” was a phrase he believes he made popular.

Since Bure re-emerged in mainstream media, she has suffered a great deal of criticism for her conservative Christian views. The actress constantly addresses her naysayers and after receiving a slew of insults from Rio followers she responded to the costume designer’s post as well.

“Why do you have to be nasty to me? You don’t know me or my heart. I’m not homophobic and always sad when people think otherwise. Loving Jesus doesn’t mean I hate gay people or anyone. You sent a bunch of hateful people to my page writing horrible things. I hope next time you’ll spread love and kindness, even when you disagree with people. Sending you love and wish you all the best. Truly. – Candace,” she said in response.
