Candace Cameron Bure has spilled the tea on JoJo Siwa calling her “the rudest celebrity” she’s ever met. On July 24, Siwa posted a viral TikTok where she ranked her thoughts on different celebrities with superlatives like “nicest” and “the coolest”. Revealing the ‘rudest’ celebrity she’s met, the the dancer quickly flashed a photo of Bure. Although Siwa never explained why she chose Bure, the More complete house alum took to Instagram on July 26 to clear up the controversy and explain what happened with Siwa.
While dubbing the video for a special edition of “Candace’s Car Chronicles,” the actress recorded herself in her car and opened up about the drama with Siwa. She said she was ‘shocked’ by Siwa’s TikTok post and reached out to the former dance moms star. According to Bure, they were talking the same thing morning, she posted her Instagram video.
“I called her and we had a great conversation,” Bure said in the video. “[Siwa] was like, ‘Hey, how are you?’ I said, ‘Well, I’ve been better. What happened?'”
Bure said Siwa told him the video was a “Silly TikTok Trending” and didn’t think it would go viral. However, Bure told her that the post “was a big deal” and that she wanted to figure out what happened. Bure thought they were on good terms after appearing on the same episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show in December 2019.
Bure said Siwa agreed they were hitting it off during the talk show appearance, prompting the More complete house star to ask when she had offended the dancer. Turns out it was at More complete house first in 2013.
“She said, ‘You know, I met you at More complete house premiere, and I was 11,” Bure said, recounting that Siwa had mentioned that she had come to Bure for a red carpet photo, but the actor had declined the request. “‘You said to me, ‘Not now’ and then you kept doing what you were doing and taking pictures with other people on the red carpet,” she recalled telling Siwa when they called telephone.
Bure claims she later apologized to Siwa, noting that she was heartbroken for unknowingly hurting the dancer’s feelings; however, Siwa obviously reassured her that she understands now, as an adult, why Bure refused the photo and understands that his intentions weren’t bad.
Bure ended his video by saying the lesson to be learned from the situation is “to be mindful” of what you post online.
So, it looks like Bure and Siwa are on good terms, at least according to the actor. It’s nice to see that the situation has cleared up.
