Everywhere you look, everywhere you go is a heart. But JoJo Siwa broke down when she had a disappointing run-in with “Full House” star Candace Cameron Bure.
On Tuesday, Bure responded to a viral TikTok video posted Sunday, in which Siwa called her the “rudest celebrity” she’s met. In an Instagram video, the actress shared that she spoke directly to the singer-dancer to clarify the situation.
After Siwa’s TikTok went viral over the weekend, Bure appeared to respond with a Bible verse on Monday. The next day, however, she addressed it head-on.
“Honestly, I was shocked when I saw TikTok on Sunday and I had no idea where it came from,” Bure said Tuesday.
Bure said Siwa told her on the phone that she thought the actor was the “rudest” after snapping a picture with her at the Netflix red carpet premiere of Fuller House, a spin-off series of Full House”, had declined. Bure said Siwa admitted her TikTok diss was “silly” and that she didn’t mean for the video to explode on social media.
“She said, ‘I met you at the ‘Fuller House’ premiere and I was 11 years old and we were all on the red carpet. And when I came up to you and said, “Can I have a picture with you?” You said to me, “Not now,” and then just kept doing what you were doing, taking pictures with other people on the carpet,” Bure said.
Bure said she apologized to Siwa during their conversation, unaware that the interaction left such a lasting mark. However, she said that Siwa, who recently rose to fame after her “Dance Mom” days, said she now understands what it’s like in public. While the enema was years ago, Siwa told Bure, “I remember that.”
Bure replied, “As a mother, it breaks my heart for making you feel this way and I’m sorry for your mother too for doing that to her daughter.”
After the TikTok drama was cleared up, Bure said “all is well on the JoJo front” and insists lessons in kindness, mindfulness and grace are the key takeaways from the social media anger.
“No matter how many followers you have, even a 10-second trend on TikTok could do harm because our words count and our actions count. … We all influence the people around us,” Bure said.
The actor also apologized to other fans who didn’t have pleasant encounters with her.
“If you ever meet me in person and I wasn’t the person you hoped or expected to be, I just want to say I’m sorry — sorry in the sense that I get asked for photos and autographs a lot,” he said you. “Ninety-nine percent of the time I enjoy doing that, I enjoy talking to people. … I am still human.”
