Putting her money where her mouth is! Jodie Sweetin, who memorably played Stephanie Tanner on Full House and Fuller House, was none too pleased to find out that her latest movie had been sold to the Great American Family channel. The “faith-based” network is controversial to some because Candace Cameron Bure—chief creative officer at Great American Media and Sweetin’s former costar—told the press that the channel would keep “traditional marriage” in its programming, which was seen by many as a not-so-subtle way to say “no LGBTQ+ representation here!”
As Jodie Sweetin considers herself an ally to the queer community, she said she was “disappointed” to find out that her movie, Craft Me a Romance, would be airing on the network and further promised that “in keeping with my mission of supporting the LGBTQ+ family, any potential or future money made from this sale will be donated to LGBTQ+ organizations,” per People. (We’re assuming she means her earnings from the sale and future income from the project, since she can’t really promise that other people will donate too.)
This isn’t the first time the middle Tanner daughter has spoken up in support of the LGBTQ+ community. In June she posted a picture of herself and friends at a Pride event on Instagram, earning a “Love you !!!” from Dylan Mulvaney and a “Don’t let DJ see this lol” from another commenter.

Sweetin also reposted a pic of a friend dancing in rainbow wigs with the caption, “May you be free, May you be love of EVERY kind, and may you remember that you are a fucking gorgeous, unique and DIVINE badass who can do ANYTHING! Yep… you. I’m definitely talking to YOU. 🏳️🌈 or not… you’re fucking amazing… but for this month, let’s rejoice in our 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️ community.” The actor added, “And I turned comments off, cause I’m not about to let any trolls dim my MF shine ❤️❤️.” Indeed! No need to give the trolls any more attention than necessary. Looking forward to seeing where Sweetin donates her $$, and remember, just as in a real family, you can’t always change someone’s mind, but you can always refuse to join them in bigotry.
