Hilary Duffs Husband Matthew Koma Rips Candace Cameron Bure Over Fourth of July Post
The 35-year-old singer/songwriter takes to TikTok to criticize the ‘Fuller House’ actress over her Fourth of July post, in which Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born in the U.S.A.’ can be heard playing in the background.
AceShowbiz –JoJo Siwa isn’t the only star who is coming at Candace Cameron Bure. In the aftermath of the two’s “rudest celebrity” feud, Hilary Duff‘s husband Matthew Koma took to TikTok to roast the “Fuller House” actress over her Fourth of July post.
In the TikTok video which was posted over the weekend, Matthew called out Candace for her selfie-style video which saw her donning a Fourth of July-themed gear. Meanwhile, Bruce Springsteen‘s “Born in the U.S.A.” could be heard playing in the background of Candace’s video.
Commenting on the actress’ song choice, the 35-year-old singer/songwriter said, “Yeah that, the song you’re playing? Yeah, it’s about veterans coming home from Vietnam and being treated like s**t.” He stressed, “Yeah, it’s not about the Fourth of July.”
In Candace’s original video, the 46-year-old actress, who wore a shirt that had “God Bless America” written across it and a “God is Good” baseball hat, said to the camera, “I mean, c’mon, would you expect anything less from me?” She went on to add while giggling, “Happy Fourth of July!”
“Born in the U.S.A.” is indeed has a dark underlying meaning despite its upbeat melody. Bruce previously spoke on the song’s origins while speaking in an old TV interview. “That particular song fell into a certain social context. The country had veered to the right, and the Republicans at the time were basically attempting to co-opt anything American,” he explained at the time. ” ‘Born in the U.S.A.’ was a song of rebellion.”
More recently, the 72-year-old musician discussed the song in the final episode of the podcast “Renegades: Born in the U.S.A” which was hosted by Barack Obama. “This is a song about the pain, glory, shame of identity and of place,” the music icon said. “So it’s a complex picture of the country. Our protagonist is someone who has been betrayed by his nation and yet still feels deeply connected to the country that he grew up in.”
Bruce also talked about why the song has been appropriated. “One is because it was so powerful; two is because its imagery was so fundamentally American,” he reasoned. “But it did demand of you to hold two contradictory ideas in your mind at one time: that you could both be very critical of your nation and very prideful of your nation simultaneously. And that is something that you see argued about to this very day.”
