Candace Cameron Bure posted a video about how God is her “defender” and more following the latest slam on her, this time by actress Hillary Duff’s husband Matthew Koma. It comes after a string of attacks against the star.
The 46-year-old actress took to her Instagram story Monday to read a bible verse on camera after Koma roasted the “Full House” star. Koma slammed Bure over a post she made back on the 4th of July in which a Bruce Springsteen song played in the background, which Koma said was about Vietnam vets being “treated like s***,” Page Six reported in a piece published Tuesday.
“Yeah, the song you’re playing?” Koma shared on TikTok. “It’s about veterans coming home from Vietnam and being treated like s***. Yeah, it’s not about, it’s not the Fourth of July.”

In response, the “Fuller House” star posted a video online showing her reading the following verse from Isaiah 12:2.
“The lord is my salvation,” Bure shared. “I will trust Him and not be afraid. For He, and He alone, is my strength and my defender. He has become my salvation.”
She captioned the post, “Scripture memory day.”
In the actress’ original post that Koma played alongside his TikTok, we see Bure decked out in patriotic attire as Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” plays in the background. In the clip, she said, “I mean, c’mon, would you expect anything less from me? Happy Fourth of July!”
The 72-year-old singer has spoken about the song in the past and said it’s “about the pain, glory, shame of identity and of place,” on the “Renegades: Born in the U.S.A.,” podcast hosted by Barack Obama. The lyrics are about a fictional Vietnam veteran who has returned from war.
“So it’s a complex picture of the country,” he added. “Our protagonist is someone who has been betrayed by his nation and yet still feels deeply connected to the country that he grew up in.”
The Koma post comes after several attacks against Bure on social media by dancer/YouTuber JoJo Siwa, who first labeled Bure the “rudest celebrity” she ever met because of something she said happened when she was 11.
Siwa followed that up by sharing that Bure had reached out to her by phone to apologize. However, she took another swipe at the actress when she told the Page Six that Bure didn’t share “all the details” of what happened when she told fans on social media about it, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
