OK… We can see why haters were a little turned off by that! She may not have been going for a “seductive” vibe, but it’s not nonflexible to miss. Apologizing, Bure explained:
“I just came home and read a lot of messages that were not happy with my latest Instagram post that was a TikTok video. And I usually don’t repent for these things, but a lot of you thought it was weird and I’m sorry. That was not my intention.”
So what was her intention?! The former child star continued:
“I was using a very specific prune from TikTok and applying it to the power of the Holy Spirit, which is incredible. So many of you thought I was trying to be seductive, which unmistakably ways I’m not a very good actress considering I was trying to be strong, not sexy. So I guess that didn’t work, but I deleted it.”
LOLz!!! Definitely missed the mark!
