Candace Cameron Bure’s 23-Year-Old Daughter Condemns JoJo Siwa, “Sensitive” Generation
Last weekend, JoJo Siwa destroyed Candace Cameron Bure, identifying her as the “rudest celebrity” she’s ever met.
Candace is a Full House alum and spent time as the primary antagonist on The View.
JoJo is a beloved entertainer known for her relentless positivity, and she explained her disappointing encounter in a thoughtful way.
That was not enough for Candace’s daughter, Natasha. She is lashing out at JoJo and their entire “sensitive” generation.
23-year-old Natasha Bure took to her Instagram Story to demand that JoJo Siwa “grow up.”
“Respectfully,” she began, “someone saying ‘no’ to taking a photo with you is not a ‘rough experience.’”
That is certainly true. And, had she left it at that, we’d still be nodding our heads in agreement.
Instead, Natasha continued by voicing some weird generational contempt that decent people just don’t say.
“This generation is so sensitive and has zero backbone,” Natasha whined.
“Grow up,” she demanded of the teenage performer.
Natasha then added: “There are bigger issues in the world than this.”
Just for the record, 19-year-old JoJo Siwa is, by most accounts, Gen Z.
Natasha Bure, is arguably Gen Z but could just as easily be a Millennial.
Generational divides largely arbitrary and entirely made up.
But Natasha seems to be parroting some hostile weirdos.
Given her mother’s public stances, it’s probably not surprising to see Natasha speaking like an old rich conservative.
Anyway, Natasha went on to acknowledge that JoJo felt disappointed after meeting Candace as an 11-year-old.
However, she declared that her mom is “the most kind, soft-spoken, apologetic, class act” that anyone is likely to meet.
She argued that Candace declining to take a photo did not merit JoJo’s reaction.
“For someone to say that they don’t want to take a photo with you,” Natasha noted.
She continues: “or that it’s a bad time because they’re working is not a ‘rough experience.’”
Natasha pointed out: “There are people who are dying in other countries, there are children who are starving.”
“Those people are having a rough experience,” Natasha declared.
Well, yes, but it’s important to remember that we don’t grade human suffering on a curve.
A stubbed toe still hurts, even if someone else lost their leg in a minefield. Someone else’s cancer doesn’t make your cold more bearable.
That said, is it possible that JoJo’s reaction was out of proportion with Candace’s brush-off 8 years go?
But … what reaction did JoJo have, exactly?
“I will say because I had a bad experience, that doesn’t mean that she is an awful human,” JoJo said at the time.
“I think it just was an inconvenient time for her,” she admitted.
“And,” JoJo detailed, “little 11-year-old me was just so pumped up and so excited.”
“But,” JoJo emphasized, “that doesn’t mean she’s the worst human ever.”
She explained: “It just, you know, it was a rough experience for me.”
It makes sense that an excited tween would feel disappointed by an encounter.
And Candace being the “rudest celebrity” that JoJo has met simply means that JoJo has not met someone ruder.
It does not mean that a ruder celebrity does not exist. JoJo never implied anything of the sort.
Honestly, both JoJo and Candace herself gave fairly nuanced public statements. This didn’t escalate into a feud.
Natasha’s comment took a swipe at millions of people while sounding like an ornery retiree grumbling over clickbait. Super weird.
