“The Walking Dead” star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is taking his wife Hilarie Burton’s side regarding her comments about Candace Cameron Bure’s recent “traditional marriage” remarks.
Bure was criticized by numerous celebs after claiming Great American Family had no plans to feature same-sex couples in the movies shown on the channel.
Burton posted earlier this week:
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. https://t.co/X70aO4WIcB

Her husband Morgan then replied: “How’d I miss this twit?! Who the f**k is this person? Hey Hil? You’re awesome. We lucky to have ya. X”
He added, “‘Make your money honey.’ Lol… cooked kids dinner and was laughing whole time. Wife has words AND timing.”

Bure said during a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal: “I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.”
She has since released a lengthy statement to ET, saying in part that she has “great love and affection for all people.”
“I had also expressed in my interview, which was not included, that people of all ethnicities and identities have and will continue to contribute to the network in great ways both in front of and behind the camera, which I encourage and fully support,” she shared.
