After receiving backlash from the post, Bure -- a vocal Christian -- commented on Del Rio's post, defending herself against accusations that her religion made her homophobic. Del Rio shared Bure's comments on her own Instagram, writing, "HER RESPONSE."
Bure's views on homosexuality have long been scrutinized. In 2015, the former View co-host caused controversy when she defended an Oregon bakery for refusing to prepare a cake for a lesbian wedding.
"I don’t think this is discrimination at all," Bure said at the time. "This is about freedom of association, it’s about constitutional rights, it’s about First Amendment rights. We do have the right to still choose who we associate with."
