Candace Cameron Bure Shuts Down Body-Shamer

The "Fuller House" star, 42, shut down an internet troll who left a rude comment about her weight next to an Instagram photo of herself and her 18-year-old son, Lev.

 

"All that excercising (sic) and you still look like you weigh more than your husband, did you change your diet?" the commenter wrote, apparently mistaking Lev for his father, retired hockey pro Valeri Bure, 43.

The actress shot back, "If a 25 inch waist looks big to you … then you’re looking through an altered lens," before adding, "Be well."

The initial comment is all the more offensive considering that Bure has opened up about her past struggles with bulimia.

In May 2016, while participating in an Eating Recovery Day panel in New York City, the actress revealed she was once stuck in a years-long cycle of bingeing and purging. As a newlywed with her first child on the way, she'd relocated in Montreal to be with her husband. But the athlete often traveled during the hockey season. Feeling lonely and isolated, she sought comfort in food.

"The change of having worked since I was 5 years old to now becoming a wife and soon-to-be mom, and living in a city where I didn't have family and friends around me, I kind of lost the sense of who I was," she revealed.
