Candace Cameron Bure is calling out the “haters.”
Over the weekend, the 44-year-old Fuller House actress took to Instagram to share a family photo with husband Valeri Bure and their three kids – Natasha, 22, Lev, 20, and Maksim, 18 – along with a message in honor of the New Year.
“Happy New Year from the Bures!! Looking forward to what 2021 has in store. I’m praying for unity, grace, humility, compassion and love for mankind. With God, all things are possible 🙏🏻. Sending virtual hugs and kisses! XO,” Candace wrote along with the photo.
People then started to react to Candace‘s photo, while making comments about her kids’ appearances in the photo.
“What a weird pose your daughter’s doing,” one user responded, referring to Natasha, who was looking away from the camera. Another user also wrote, “Why do your daughter and son [Lev] look so angry?”
Candace then took to the comments section to respond to the negative comments.
“Wow-I post a family photo and you all find everything you don’t like about it or can make fun of. Do better than that. Please,” Candace wrote.
Natasha also clapped back, writing, “Omg!!!! I didn’t smile or look at the camera. Sue me!!!”
Candace then took to Facebook to share a lengthier message, explaining her disappointment to the comments.
If you missed it, Candace‘s older brother Kirk Cameron recently came under fire for breaking COVID safety protocols.

“I posted my family Christmas photo and sadly, there were so many unkind comments,” Candace wrote. “Do you think it’s funny to criticize someone’s children? To make jokes about them? To critique our poses? The direction in which we are looking? Our physical appearance and facial expressions?
“I wished blessings upon everyone as I shared it in the spirit of a happy new year, yet so many of you came back with jokes about our appearance and criticism of what you thought would have been a better photo,” Candace continued. “Shame on you. It doesn’t matter if you’re 10 or 90 years old, rude is rude. Be better than that. I’m praying for humanity. Manners and respect. If you don’t like something, just move on. There are people and real feelings behind every screen.”
Candace concluded: “P.S. Please don’t tell me to ignore the ‘haters.’ There were plenty of well meaning people who thought it would be funny to point out things and share their commentary, ‘with love.’ Umm… that’s not love. That’s rude. Try kind. It looks good on everyone.”
