The Glamorous star is speaking up and recalling her time playing a character on Fuller House.

Miss Benny is speaking up!

In a recent TikTok video, Benny responded to a fan asking about her past experience playing Casey, the first-ever out gay character on Fuller House. The actress, who is now leading her own Netflix series, Glamorous, talked about how “one of the Tanner sisters” was “very publicly not for the girls.”

Given her history of not wanting any LGBTQ+ inclusion on TV shows she works on, Candace Cameron Bure’s name has come up as the most likely person that Benny is referring to. Benny went on to share the following details about her time on Fuller House:

“I remember I got sat down by the writers and the studio to basically warn me how this person was allegedly trying to get the character removed and not have a queer character on the show. I was also sort of warned and prepared that this person’s fan base might be encouraged to target me specifically.”

She added, “The fact that this teenage actor who’s coming in to make jokes about wearing a scarf is suddenly a target from an adult is crazy to me. To this day, despite working on the show every day for two weeks straight, I have only had a conversation with one of the Tanner sisters.”

Bure refuted Benny’s allegations in a statement to People, writing:

“I never asked Miss Benny’s character to be removed from Fuller House and did not ask the writers, producers, or studio executives to not have queer characters on the show. Fuller House has always welcomed a wide range of characters. I thought Miss Benny did a great job as ‘Casey’ on the show. We didn’t share any scenes together, so we didn’t get a chance to talk much while filming on set. I wish Miss Benny only the best.”

This isn’t the first – or second, or third – time that Bure is accused of being prejudiced against LGBTQ+ people. In 2022, JoJo Siwa openly talked about her negative interactions with Bure, receiving the support of Bure’s Full House costar Jodie Sweetin. Other individuals who worked with Bure on different projects subsequently opened up about not wanting to work with the actress in the future.

Bure also issued very controversial statements about not wanting to include LGBTQ+ characters and storylines in the movies and TV shows she makes for the Great American Family network, which hired the actress as its chief content officer.

We love Miss Benny.

Glamorous is now streaming on Netflix.
