It looks like JoJo Siwa has reignited her feud with Candace Cameron Bure again.

The Dance Moms alum, 19, voiced her disappointment on Instagram one day after The Wall Street Journal published an interview in which the Full House star, 46, said that she would only be appearing in "traditional" Christmas films.

Cameron Bure's comments come after she was asked whether the Great American Family channel would be featuring LGBT+ storylines after Hallmark is set to release The Holiday Sitter - their first original festive film solely focused on an LGBT+ love story.

Speaking to the publication, the actress said no, and added that she intends to "keep traditional marriage at the core" of her partnership with the media network.

Check out Siwa's response below:

Siwa - who has identified as queer since January 2021 - took to her social media on November 15, to label the actress "rude and hurtful" for her controversial remarks on whose stories she wants to tell.

Referencing her public feud with Cameron Bure from earlier this year, the So You Think You Can Dance judge posted a screenshot of an article paraphrasing her comments to indicate that there would be "no gays" on her channel.

"Honestly, I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with intention of excluding LGBTQIA+ [people] but then also talk about it in the press," Siwa responded. "This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people."

The YouTuber's comment section was filled with support from celebrities, including fellow Dance Moms alum Maddie Ziegler, who wrote: "go off jojo!!!!!!!"

Cameron Bure's former Full House costar Jodie Sweetin also shared her support for Siwa in the comments, writing: "You know I love you" with a red heart emoji.

Earlier this year, the two celebs had a high-profile back-and-forth after the Nickelodeon star called the Fuller House actor the "rudest celebrity" she'd ever met.

In a viral (now-deleted) TikTok video posted in July, Siwa flashed photos of celebrities alongside categories including "rudest," "nicest," "coolest," and "celebrity crush".

Underneath the first heading: "The rudest celebrity I’ve ever met," Siwa turns her phone for a brief second to show a photo of Cameron Bure.

Cameron Bure later addressed the viral video via an Instagram Reel from her car, explaining that she had called Siwa to apologize and understand her side of the story.

The Christmas Under Wraps star said she and the teen star had a "great conservation" during which Siwa said "she didn't think this was going to go viral” and told Cameron Bure she "didn't think it was a big deal".

The actress ended the video by saying that things between the two of them were "all good" and warned viewers about the effect their words can have on social media.

"Because our words matter and our actions matter and whether you have 50 million followers or 500 followers or five followers, we all influence the people around us," she said.

However, it looks like things aren't "all good" anymore.
