JoJo Siwa is standing by her decision to call Cameron Candace Bure out and is ready to defend her values using whatever means necessary.

As you might know, the two stars, who never had a friendly relationship to begin with, were recently embroiled in another saga after Siwa slammed Bure for her comment about excluding members of the LGBTQIA+ community from projects on the Great American Family (GAF) network.

Following the repercussions and blowout of the incident, Siwa, in a recent interview, explained that she has no regret for her "disruptive" actions.

JoJo Siwa Believes She Used Her Voice Rightfully Against Candace Cameron Bure

At Disney+'s "Elton John Live: Farewell from Dodger Stadium," the "Dance Moms" alum shared her thoughts on the saga and explained why she needed to speak up against Bure's narrative in the first place. In her words:

"I am being honest and maybe being a little disruptive to somebody's life, but it's what I believe in."

The 19-year-old, who has risen to become an LGBTQ+ activist since becoming a member of the community in 2021, revealed that what the "Full House" alum said was unacceptable. "That's what's f---ed up. You not liking gay marriage, do your thing girl. You being religious, do your thing girl," noted Siwa.

She then lamented, "Of course, I would want everybody to do what they want to do. But to purposely exclude someone because of who they love, that's sh---y." The issue gravely affected the talented choreographer that she mentioned the possibility of ever being on talking terms with Bure is extremely low.

"We have not [talked], and I don't think we ever will again," Siwa confessed. However, it is a matter of never say never for the teenager who believes there is still redemption for the "Christmas Under Wraps" star.

While talking to People magazine, the "Boomerang" singer shared that she wants Bure to take up GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis's offer to "come have a conversation." Sharing her thoughts, Siwa said, "That's what I would want Candace to do. I would want her to have a conversation with GLAAD. Because even though I am educated, GLAAD is such an incredible organization. Sarah is a genius when it comes to the gay community."

The young YouTuber believes that the 46-year-old having the conversation with GLAAD's Sarah would be "eye-opening," not only for Bure but the entire world.

The saga between Siwa and Bure reared its ugly head for the second time when "The View" alum, during a chat with The Wall Street Journal, spoke about her plans to keep "traditional marriage at the core" as the chief creative officer for the Great American Family (GAF) network.

Siwa, upon hearing the news, took to her social media to hold Bure accountable. Alongside a headline that read, "Candace Cameron Bure's Plans For New Cable Channel: No Gay," the angered activist wrote, "honestly, I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with intention of excluding LGBTQIA+, but then also talk about it in the press."

The "Kid In a Candy Store" songstress also branded Bure's remark as "rude and hurtful" to the community. However, as with most topics as divisive as this, Siwa didn't receive complete adoration from her 11.6 million followers. As The Blast reported, some fans branded her a "brat" who likes to play the victim.

This annoyed fan wrote, "It’s not that deeep it’s her s**t she can do what she wants! The gay community wants so much respect but don’t respect another persons views or opinions ! Always offended by something like the gay community is more accepted now more than ever from cartoons, shows, music, marriage equal rights like wtf else u want like get over it the whole world isn’t gay so stop trying to force everyone to be a part of it or promote it!"

Despite the backlash, Siwa, in her interview, revealed that she also received overwhelming support — with stars like Jodie Sweetin, Maren Morris, and Maddie Ziegler cheering her on.

Speaking about Sweetin's encouragement, the young star said, "Having Jodie Sweetin agree with what I was saying and that meant a lot because she is a really kind, good human who is doing good for the world."

Siwa also shared that using her voice to defend her values, regardless of how it might look, feels like a "really cool position" to be in.
