Candace Cameron Bure has issued an apology for posting a video that many followers found to be controversial.

Earlier this week, the “Full House” star shared a video on TikTok holding a Bible while lip syncing to Lana Del Rey’s song “Jealous Girl,” reported the Daily Mail.

"Baby, I'm a gangster too and it takes two to tango/You don't wanna' dance with me, dance with me," Bure mouths over the tune. The 45-year-old then bends over and picks up the Bible as text flashes on the screen that says, “When they don’t know the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Bure also shared the video to her Instagram, but wound up taking it down after getting backlash as some deemed the clip too “seductive.”

Following the negative feedback, the mother of three took to her Instagram Story to issue a mea culpa, the outlet noted.

"I just came home and read a lot of messages that were not happy with my latest Instagram post that was a TikTok video," the actress said. "And I usually don't apologize for these things, but a lot of you thought it was weird and I'm sorry. That was not my intention."

Bure further elaborated on her reasoning for creating the video.

“I was using a very specific clip from TikTok and applying it to the power of the Holy Spirit, which is incredible,” she added. “And so many of you thought that I was trying to be seductive, which clearly means I’m not a very good actress because I was trying to be strong, not sexy or seductive.”

The "Fuller House" star also took the entire incident as a teaching moment.

“Maybe I was just trying to be too cool or relevant in a Biblical way that didn’t work,” she continued. “Anyway, most of you didn’t like it clearly, but there was a small percentage of you that appreciated what I did and understood my intention. But anyway, it’s gone. Now I know what you don’t like.”

Bure did not delete the video from TikTok and it can still be viewed on the platform.
