Candace Cameron Bure has addressed the heavy criticism she received after posting what some fans deemed an “inappropriate” photo of herself with husband, Valeri Bure.
The offending image showed Val, 46, resting his hand on the 44-year-old “Fuller House” star’s breast, apparently offending her more conservative supporters who chose to call her out for the snap. Candace eventually deleted the photo from her Instagram page, venting her frustration over being judged for being affectionate with her husband of over two decades. She later re-uploaded the image to her Instagram Stories.
“For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband’s hand on my boob — my husband of 24 years — thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it’s my husband. We have so much fun together,’ she responded in a series of since-deleted videos, The Daily Mail reports.
“He can touch me any time he wants, and I hope he does,” she continued. “This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about.”
Candace was also close to issuing an apology to those offended before stopping herself.
“I’m sorry if it offended you — I’m actually not sorry,” she said with a laugh. “I’m glad we have fun together after so many years. He can touch me all day long.”
Candace and Valeri married in 1996 and share daughter Natasha, 22, and sons Lev, 20 and 18-year-old Maksim.
