Raven Symone and Candace Cameron Bure Have Heated Debate (VIDEO)
Full House star Candace Cameron Bure and The Cosby Show’s Raven Symone got into a heated debate during a Hot Topics segment of The View this past Tuesday, July 7 — and it’s not to be missed.
The ladies were asked for their opinions on the Oregon Labor Commission ordering Aaron and Melissa Klein of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Oregon to compensate Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer after refusing to bake a cake for their (same-sex) wedding. Candace, a conservative Christian, doesn’t think Aaron and Melissa’s refusal was “discrimination” as Raven described it, but rather an exercise of their constitutional right to not associate with the couple’s ceremony, which they felt ran counter to their religious beliefs.
Raven’s comeback? “I refuse to associate with you right now.”
As they continued to debate, moderator and View co-host Whoopi Goldberg chimed in to ask (rhetorically) whether the bakers were invited to the wedding. Though Candace agreed they weren’t, she stuck to her belief that Aaron and Melissa had every right to refuse to make the cake, which prompted Raven (who is in a same-sex relationship with Empire actress Azmarie Livingston) to give the Fuller House star tons of side-eye, like this:
And this one, too:
Candace feels the $135K fine was an “unconscionable” sum; Raven, however, said it was just “enough.”
