Candace Cameron Bure paused her social media break to address Brother Kirk Cameron's controversial Christmas carols. In the meantime, he continues to defend the maskless protests.
The Fuller House star quelled any speculation she had among the hundreds of people attending Cameron's mass gatherings in the greater Los Angeles area, where COVID-19 cases rose and ICU capacity fell. But she won't stand for "hideous tweets" about her brother.
“I haven't attended any Christmas carols lately. I also choose to follow the larger guidelines by wearing a mask and social distancing in public, ”wrote the Hallmark Channel darling. "However, I don't appreciate the hideous tweets about my family. I believe that respectful dialogue is the key to being heard."
Cameron, 50, has teamed up with Sing It Louder USA to lead peaceful protests against the policy of California Governor Gavin Newsom. The Christmas carol events posted on the Growing Pains star's social media accounts feature hundreds of people singing Christmas carols with no masks or social distancing in sight.
Cameron was hosting three this month in Thousand Oaks, California, about 60 km from LA, as COVID-19 cases skyrocket in the area. The former child star turned evangelist has been labeled "unchristian" and "irresponsible", among other things, for promoting mass gatherings amid the pandemic.
During the interview with Newsmax TV on Wednesday, Cameron himself was before criticism when he slammed the "masked Gestapo".
"You know, we've all heard of The Masked Singer and it's pretty angry, but since we started those peaceful Christmas protests I've been affectionately called 'the exposed singer' and caused a whole different kind of anger. Cameron quipped. He said he was trying to offer hope with his events to people struggling with mental health problems in isolation.
Cameron was asked to respond to critics who wonder why "you can't practice safety and spread happiness."
"I'm not the masked police," he said. "This is America. We shouldn't have masked gestures and distance surveillance when people are adults, they're not babies. You can make decisions about your own health ... you are responsible for your health care, not the government."
For his part, Cameron has chosen to travel and collect wherever he wants. Between the protests, he and his 17-year-old son attended an “unforgettable” event in Mar-a-Lago with the conservative student group Turning Point USA.
