Lacey Chabert subtly disses Candace Cameron Bure’s comments against Hallmark, calls the channel a 'real home'
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Lacey Chabert has taken a stand for Hallmark while taking a subtle dig at Candace Cameron Bure's controversial comments against the channel. In an interview, the former ‘Party of Five’ actress asserted that in the television network she’s “found a real home.” She also stated that “I’m able to be more of who I am here than possibly anywhere else I’ve worked.”
Chabert’s statement came as actress Bure left Hallmark for the Great American Family (GAF) channel, saying the latter would “keep traditional marriage at the core” seemingly taking a swipe at Hallmark for making LGBTQ+ inclusive programs. Though the ‘Lost in Space’ star did not directly mention Bure but she reportedly said, “You know what, I wish everybody the best. I really can’t comment on it further other than I care about everybody involved.”

But when she was asked by Vulture to comment on Bure’s remark on Hallmark that now it’s a “completely different network,” she answered, adding, “I’ve felt has been embracing our creative ideas and it’s my responsibility to the audience, who continue to tune into my movies, that I give the best I have to offer.”
Chabert said, “That’s always my mission. I’ll never abandon what Hallmark means for me, which is that everything is centered around the heart. I don’t think there are any plans for that to change anytime soon,” before adding, “I see myself being a lifer as long as I’m inspired by the stories and as long as they’ll have me. I have ideas for 50 more. I hope this is just the beginning.”
Her stance has gained a lot of positivity on social media with a Twitter user saying, “Thank you for being real and stand firm above all the hate and cancel culture. We all should be able to hold our own beliefs. Classy and thoughtful Lacy!” Another user wrote, “She has class. Candace should learn from her.” The third one added, “Burton could learn some class and tolerance from Chabert. There are literally dozens of networks based on interests and beliefs. This is nothing new. So EVERY network is bigoted for not including ALL interests? So every network should be identical? Whatever!”

Earlier, Bure had issued a statement via her social media page after receiving a lot of backlash for apparently shedding Hallmark and its new projects. She had told The Wall Street Journal, “My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning and purpose and depth behind them. I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.”
On her Instagram, the 46-year-old actress shared, “All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people. It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone." She added, "It saddens me that the media is often seeking to divide us, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies. But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn't be surprised.”
She then wrote, "To the members of the media responsible for using this opportunity to fan flames of conflict and hate, I have a simple message: I love you anyway. To those who hate what I value and who are attacking me online: I love you.” Bure had also added, “I’ve never been interested in proselytizing through my storytelling, but in celebrating God’s greatness in our lives through the stories I tell. I hope you'll join me in sharing God's hope for all the world this Christmas season...Call that my Christmas wish.”
