Candace Cameron Bure isn’t here for your body shaming.

Recently, the 42-year-old Fuller House star shared a photo of herself and her teenage son outside a Malibu restaurant.

While the majority of comments were complimentary, one rude remark stood out to both Bure and her fans.

“All that exercising and you still look like you weigh more than your husband,” read the cutting comment. “Did you change your diet?”

Instead of deleting the comment or leaving it alone, Cameron Bure was quick to reply.

“Nice troll,” she wrote. “If a 25-inch waist looks big to you … then you’re looking through an altered lens.”

But the troll was persistent and noted that they had confused Cameron Bure’s son for her husband, former NHL star Valeri Bure.

“Didn’t know it was your son, guess I hit a nerve. … But someone who believes in the Bible wouldn’t be calling names,” the troll retorted.

While Cameron Bure didn’t engage further, her fans come to her defense.

The star has spoken in the past about her struggles with bulimia, admitting that she had the eating disorder in 1995 after Full House wrapped.

Struggling to find balance when the show ended, Cameron Bure began a cycle of binging and purging to fill a void. She has since reclaimed healthy eating habits, maintaining a mostly vegan diet and intense workouts with a personal trainer.
