Candace Cameron Bure is telling folks what it is like “when you’re a conservative in Hollywood.”
The former Full House star posted a TikTok on Tuesday with these phrases typed throughout it. In the video, she lip-synced to the phrases, “Is it me? Am I the drama? I don’t think I’m the drama. Maybe I am. Am I the villain? I don’t think I’m the villain.”
Just final week, the actress defined the issue of getting hosted ABC’s daytime speak present The View, from 2015 to 2016, as a result of she had been pushed to speak politics.
“I was pitched a completely different direction, because that was my hesitation. I said, ‘Politics is not, it’s not my bag. I’ve never spoken publicly about politics. I don’t even come from a political family, meaning I didn’t grow up speaking about politics,’” Bure informed Sara Haines, certainly one of her former co-hosts who continues to seem on the present, on the Behind the Table podcast. “So they had told me, ‘We’re going so much lighter,’ a lot more would be evergreen. We want to talk more about family and sex and life, so I was, like, absolutely, 100 percent, I’m onboard. And then it all changed when Trump entered the race.”
Bure mentioned she felt the stress of getting to symbolize politically conservative ladies, since she was the one one on the panel of hosts who recognized that method. Sometimes, she would get sick to her abdomen and crying earlier than the present was an everyday factor.
“The View, by far, was the toughest job,” mentioned Bure, who’s labored within the leisure trade since 1983. “And as soon as Donald Trump won that election, I was like, this has got to go, because I could not, I did not want to be the punching bag for the next four years in that conservative seat. I just didn’t want to. And it wasn’t worth it to me. It wasn’t worth my mental health, which was already suffering, so it was a very easy decision.”
Earlier this month, she drew criticism (and a few cheers) when she mentioned that she’s not anti-vaccine, however “pro-medical freedom,” “pro-informed consent,” “pro-immune system,” “pro-early intervention” and “pro-sunlight, exercise, real food & vitamins.”
