‘Full House’ star Candace Cameron Bure in Instagram feud with ‘Drag Race’ winner Bianca Del Rio

Not today, DJ.

Not every celebrity feud can be A-list.

Candace Cameron Bure, probably best known for her role as DJ Tanner on Full House, found herself in hot water with Ru Paul’s Drag Race champion Bianca Del Rio over an Etsy-style T-shirt this weekend, and things got heated.

It all started when Bure posted an Instagram of herself wearing a shirt screenprinted to say “Not Today, Satan” — a phrase popularized by Del Rio in 2014.

Del Rio (who goes by Roy Haylock out of drag) was apparently alerted to the post and regrammed it, adding the caption, “If only this homophobic republican knew.” In the past, Bure has defended a bakery’s right to deny a lesbian couple service on The View. She’s also been vocal about her conservative Christianity throughout her career. Del Rio, a comedian, seemed to enjoy the irony of Bure potentially not realizing the catchphrase’s origin was from a drag queen.

Bure took offense at Del Rio’s reply, though, and left a lengthy comment expressing her disappointment. “You don’t know me or my heart. I’m not homophobic and always sad when people think otherwise,” she wrote. Del Rio screenshotted and Instagrammed the reply, adding the hashtags #liveyourlife, #lovejesus and #republicanpride, and then followed it up with a “Current Mood” post that some might say is also related to the back-and-forth. It features a screenshot of Del Rio rolling her eyes in the Drag Race confessional booth.

The Instagrams seem to have stopped, but something tells us the comments of those photos will be popping off for weeks to come.
