Candace Cameron Bure Unfollows Jodie Sweetin Amid 'Traditional Marriage' Backlash

Last week, Hallmark star Holly Robinson Peete shared a post to Instagram that denounced Candace Cameron Bure’s “traditional marriage” comments. Bure’s onscreen sister in Full House, Jodie Sweetin, shared this post to Instagram on Saturday (November 26th)—doubling down on her support for the LGBQ+ community. Following this, Us Weekly reports Bure unfollowed Sweetin on the platform.

The post in question read, “There was a time when the words ‘tradition’ and ‘traditional’ were used to denigrate others … And to justify discriminatory laws like it wasn’t ‘traditional’ for people to marry interracially.”

The text continued, “So when we hear the words ‘traditional’ marriage to describe one type of marriage, it belittles the love and commitment that many legally married people have for each other and it triggers many of us to a time that we remember how the word ‘tradition’ was cloaked in Christianity and we were basically told that God didn’t want equality for all.”

Helena Bonham Carter Defends Both J.K. Rowling And Johnny Depp

Helena Bonham Carter is getting involved in the controversy. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the Great Expectations actress defended both J.K. Rowling and Johnny Depp.

“It’s horrendous, a load of b——t,” she said, regarding the backlash J.K. Rowling has received for her transphobic remarks. “I think [Rowling] has been hounded. It’s been taken to the extreme, the judgmentalism of people. She’s allowed her opinion, particularly if she’s suffered abuse.”

As for Johnny Depp, whom she starred alongside in multiple films, Carter said his highly publicized trial against Amber Heard left him “completely vindicated.” She added, “My view is that [Heard] got on that pendulum. That’s the problem with these things – that people will jump on the bandwagon because it’s the trend and to be the poster girl for it.”

I'm from the south, so I love being in church. I've never been married in a church, and Simon's never been married in a church, so it's going to be a new experience for both of us."

Although they had a ceremony the night before, the couple waited to exchange their wedding bands until they met each other at the altar on Saturday.

Kevin Hart Addresses 'Cancel Culture' And Learning From One's Mistakes

On Monday's (November 21st) episode of The Verywell Mind podcast, Kevin Hart spoke with licensed therapist Amy Morin about "cancel culture" and having the opportunity to learn from one's mistakes. Hart faced backlash in 2018 for resurfaced homophobic tweets he once shared, after he was chosen to host the 2019 Academy Awards.

Morin asked Hart if he felt he had to be "more careful" with his jokes in "the world of ‘cancel culture.'" The Jumanji actor replied, "Absolutely." He explained, "Let's be honest, I think there was a lot of changes that were needed and necessary, right? And I think being aware is something we should all prioritize. Just being aware. We're learning to better understand each other, and in doing so, respect should be attached to that."

Hart believes social media has introduced a "heightened level of sensitivity" and a "heightened level of opinion." He continued, "So now the things we didn't hear on a regular basis you are hearing. The conversations you may not have been aware of, well, you are hearing because they're all happening in real time."

The Me Time actor also commented on how we need to make space for people to learn from their mistakes. "We're forgetting that there has to be a world that presents the opportunity to improve. Without that, what the f---? Where do we go?" he said. "If everything is deemed bad once it's done and there is no other thing that you can do because you did the thing and that's it for you, well, what the hell? ... You have to make the mistakes to learn and to basically have real-life examples of what you're supposed to grow from."

Celebrities React To Colorado Springs Shooting

Many in Hollywood took to social media on Sunday (November 20th) to express both heartbreak and outrage following the horrific mass shooting over the weekend at Club Q, an LGBTQ+ nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The tragedy, which took place the day before Trans Day of Remembrance, resulted in five deaths and more than a dozen injuries.

Ellen DeGeneres, Andy Cohen, Hilarie Burton Morgan, Bette Midler, George Takei, Jeffrey Wright, and Ethan Embry all spoke out in response to the violence.

"My heart breaks for the victims and LGBTQ+ community in Colorado Springs. Words matter. Hate speech leads to lost lives. No one should have to live in fear for who they are," DeGeneres wrote.

Hilarie Burton Morgan connected the shooting to her recent dispute with Candace Cameron Bure: "THIS! This is why we have to speak out against bigotry of any kind - even the ‘aren't-I-cute-girl-next-door' bullshit that I called out last week. The bigotry of @GAfamilyTV is the most dangerous kind. It normalizes exclusion under the guise of ‘protecting traditional values.'"

Others blamed politicians for spewing hateful rhetoric. "What a sad morning in America. Perhaps this sick attack in Colorado will cause politicians to think twice before fanning flames of homophobia. Let people be who they are for once and for all," Cohen wrote.

Takei added, "This begins with our political leaders. Call them out when they promote hate and bigotry. Remind them of the violence of Colorado Springs. Of the massacre at Pulse Nightclub. Of what nearly happened at Coeur D'Alene. Don't let them spread hate. Don't let it go unanswered."

Todd has been sentenced to 12 years and 16 months probation, while Julie was sentenced to seven years and 16 months probation. Prosecutors wrote in a memorandum last week, "The jury's unanimous verdict sets the record straight: Todd and Julie Chrisley are career swindlers who have made a living by jumping from one fraud scheme to another, lying to banks, stiffing vendors, and evading taxes at every corner."

This comes after their son Grayson was hospitalized following a car accident last weekend. Tennessee police told TMZ Monday (November 21st) that Grayson drove into the back of a Dodge pickup truck that was stopped in standstill traffic. No arrests or charges have been made.
