Hilarie Burton is putting Candace Cameron Bure on notice.
The “One Tree Hill” star took to Twitter on Monday to call out Bure over comments she made about “traditional marriage” amid her move to the Great American Family Network.
Candace Cameron Bure Says She’s ‘A Happier Person’ When She’s Had Sex With Husband Valeri
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Bure was asked whether her new network home would follow The Hallmark Channel in featuring LGBTQ representation and same-sex couples in their programming.
The 46-year-old said they would not, explaining, “I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.
Bill Abbott, chief executive of Great American Media, then clarified, “It’s certainly the year 2022, so we’re aware of the trends. There’s no whiteboard that says, ‘Yes, this’ or ‘No, we’ll never go here.’”
Burton was not having it, though, writing in a tweet that “they’re just openly admitting their bigotry,” and adding, “I called this s**t out when Abbott was at Hallmark. Glad they dumped him.”
She also noted that “there is nothing untraditional about same-sex couples.”
Now they’re just openly admitting their bigotry.
I called this shit out years ago when Abbott was at Hallmark. Glad they dumped him.
Being LGBTQ isn’t a “trend”.
That guy and his network are disgusting. You too Candy. There is nothing untraditional about same-sex couples. https://t.co/38XIg5XeMP

In another tweet, Burton specifically called Bure a “bigot” and said, “I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy. But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank.”
