Recently, actress Candace Cameron spoke publicly about how there should be more “traditional marriages” in Christmas movies.

Cameron is an actress who famously starred in the sit-com “Full House,” and later the reboot “Fuller House.” Earlier this year, Cameron left the Hallmark network channel after working with them for 14 years to be chief creative-officer for another channel network, Great American Family.

With Christmas season slowly approaching, Cameron was asked about the new Christmas movies Great American Family will be producing.

Cameron said that her new network’s Christmas movies will focus on “traditional marriage,” and that she wants to put Christianity back into Christmas movies.

“I knew that the people behind the Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment,” Cameron said in an interview with Wall Street Journal.

Cameron also said that she does not expect the network to even feature same-sex marriage at all in any of the movies they may produce.

“Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core,” Cameron said.

Although Cameron was very set on her statement that Great American Family will not be showing any same-sex marriage, Bill Abott who owns Great American media said something different.

“It’s certainly the year 2022, so we’re aware of the trends,” Abott said. “There’s no whiteboard that says, ‘Yes, this’ or ‘No, we’ll never go here.’”

Cameron’s comments got the attention of social media star and dancer, Jojo Siwa, who criticized Cameron on Instagram, following Cameron’s interview.

“Honestly, I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with the intention of excluding LGBTQIA+, but then also talk about it in the press,” Siwa wrote. 

Other stars commented under Siwas post including Cameron’s former co-star, Jodie Sweetin. 

“You know I love you,” Sweetin wrote with two red heart emojis. 

“Go off jojo!!!!!!!” fellow “Dance Moms” alum Maddie Ziegler also commented.

Hallmark recently came out with a statement addressing their opinions on same-sex marriage in their movies.

“We want all viewers to see themselves in our programming and everyone is welcome,” a Hallmark spokesperson said when interviewed by Wall Street Journal.

Cameron is receiving tons of backlash after this interview went public, and Cameron has yet to address or apologize to her hurtful comments towards the LGBTQ+ community.
