LOS ANGELES, July 17 (UPI) -- Candace Cameron Bure addressed The View hosting rumors Thursday on Entertainment Tonight.
The 39-year-old actress is reportedly being considered to replace Nicole Wallace as a panelist on the ABC talk show, but told Cameron Mathison she received death threats following her appearance on the program earlier this month.
"Well, that's very exciting and flattering," she said of the rumors. "I always enjoying co-hosting The View every time that I go there, [but] it can be really tricky and difficult. I admit, even a few days that I was on, there were a lot of hurtful comments."
Bure inflamed many viewers with her conservative Christian beliefs by defending an Oregon bakery that refused to make a lesbian couple's wedding cake. The actress sparred with new host Raven-Symone over the issue on the July 7 episode, arguing the incident was not discriminatory.
"I just wish that we all could be respectful to one another regardless of our opinions, especially if they differ from one another," she said of the backlash. "I just wish people would say, 'Good! You have your opinion and I have mine, but let's still be nice and kind.'"
Bure is best known for portraying D.J. Tanner on ABC sitcom Full House, and will reprise the role on Netflix sequel spinoff series Fuller House in 2016. The actress, Bob Saget, John Stamos, Lori Loughlin and their other co-stars began filming the show this week.
