American actress Candace Cameron Bure denied ‘Glamorous’ star Miss Benny’s homophobic claims after a Tiktok video saying that “one of the Tanner sisters is not for the girls.”
Bure, 47, told People Magazine later that Miss Benny and she had limited interaction on the show but added she only wants “the best” for the trans actress.
“I never asked Miss Benny’s character to be removed from Fuller House and did not ask the writers, producers, or studio executives to not have queer characters on the show,” Bure said.
“Fuller House has always welcomed a wide range of characters. I thought Miss Benny did a great job as ‘Casey’ on the show. We didn’t share any scenes together, so we didn’t get a chance to talk much while filming on set. I wish Miss Benny only the best.”
This was in response to Miss Benny’s TikTok video where she alleged an incident in which she was told that her character Casey, Fuller House’s first gay character, was at risk of being cut because one of the Tanner sisters was “very publicly not for the girls.”
“I remember I got sat down by the writers and the studio to basically warn me how this person allegedly was trying to get the character removed and not have a queer character on the show,” the trans actress said in her video.
