“Neal is a wonderful person. He’s such a great actor, and I have enjoyed working with him so much. He and I both share our love and support of [the] LGBT community, for sure,” McKellar told Fox News Digital. “You know, I don’t agree with his interpretation of her comments. I just didn’t see them the same way.”
Bure came under fire after saying, “I think Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core” in a recent interview. Amid the backlash, Bledsoe announced he was leaving GAC in support of the LGBT community.
Several others in the industry also condemned her comments. Bure responded to the criticism in an Instagram post, writing, “It breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend or hurt anyone.” She added that she is “a devoted Christian, which means that I believe that every human being bears the image of God. Because of that, I am called to love all people, and I do. If you know me, you know that I am a person who loves fiercely and indiscriminately.”
McKellar, who starred opposite Bledsoe in GAC’s Christmas at the Drive-In that was released in November, defended Bure, saying, “When she was talking about the portrayal of heterosexual couples in the movies, she started the sentence with ‘I think,’ which is not definitive, and she ended it with ‘at its core,’ which doesn’t mean exclusively.”
The former Wonder Years star added: “But I love [Bledsoe] to death and wish him well.”
