Candace Cameron Bure apologizes for ‘sexy’ TikTok video about the Holy Spirit… where she lip-syncs to Lana del Rey while ‘seductively’ holding a Bible
Candace Cameron Bure has apologized to fans after she was criticized for posting a ‘seductive’ TikTok video where she posed with a bible while lip-syncing to the Lana Del Rey song Jealous Girl.
In the video, the 45-year-old actress, who is a devout Christian, mouths the lyrics, ‘Baby, I’m a gangster too and it takes two to tango / You don’t wanna dance with me, dance with me,’ while a caption across the video said: ‘When they don’t know the power of the Holy Spirit.’
However, some deemed the video offensive prompting the Fuller House star to take down the video on her Instagram feed, saying it was not her intention for the clip to be deemed as ‘weird’ or ‘seductive.’

‘I just came home and read a lot of messages that were not happy with my latest Instagram post that was a TikTok video,’ Candace said in her apology.
‘And I usually don’t apologize for these things, but a lot of you thought it was weird and I’m sorry. That was not my intention,’ she added.
‘I was using a very specific clip from TikTok and applying it to the power of the Holy Spirit, which is incredible. So many of you thought I was trying to be seductive, which clearly means I’m not a very good actress because I was trying to be strong, not sexy. So I guess that didn’t work, but I deleted it.’

Some fans commented that the post seemed ‘sexy’ which they felt was inappropriate considering she was holding up a copy of the Bible.
Candace had tried to pin it on her daughter Natasha who posted a similar video, saying she was trying to follow her lead.
‘Maybe I was just trying to be too cool or relevant in a Biblical way that didn’t work,” she explained in her Instagram video.
Addressing the hullabaloo: ‘I just came home and read a lot of messages that were not happy with my latest Instagram post that was a TikTok video,’ Candace said in her apology
‘Anyway, most of you didn’t like it, clearly, but there was a small percentage of you that appreciated what I did and understood my intention.’
‘But anyway, it’s gone. Now I know what you don’t like,’ she added.
The actress is open about he faith, and said last year in an interview that is the ‘foundation of who I am.’
She told Fox News: ‘It’s so important to me, and it’s always a part of me, whether it’s at home and privately, or when I’m reading the Bible in Bible study. But also at work, and the choices I make within work, and the companies I choose to work with and the projects that I choose to take on.’
