Candace Cameron Bure has addressed the heavy criticism she received after posting what some fans deemed an “inappropriate” photo of herself with husband Valeri Bure.

The offending image showed Val, 46, resting his hand on the 44-year-old “Fuller House” star’s breast, apparently offending her more conservative supporters who chose to call her out for the snap. Candace eventually deleted the photo from her Instagram page, venting her frustration over being judged for being affectionate with her husband of over two decades. She later re-uploaded the image to her Instagram Stories.

“For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband’s hand on my boob — my husband of 24 years — thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it’s my husband. We have so much fun together,” she responded in a series of since-deleted videos, the Daily Mail reports.

Candace was also close to issuing an apology to those offended before stopping herself.

“I’m sorry if it offended you — I’m actually not sorry,” she said with a laugh. “I’m glad we have fun together after so many years. He can touch me all day long.”

Candace and Valeri married in 1996 and share daughter Natasha, 22, and sons Lev, 20, and Maksim, 18.

‘He can touch me any time he wants, and I hope he does,’ she continued. ‘This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about.’ 

Candace noted that ‘most’ of her fans loved the cheeky post, which she had shared with Val’s ‘permission.’ She started to apologize to those who were displeased, but then swiftly took it back.  

‘I’m sorry if it offended you — I’m actually not sorry,’ she said with a laugh. ‘I’m glad we have fun together after so many years. He can touch me all day long.’ 

The mother of three also reposted the image in question as a ‘refresher’ for those who weren’t sure which picture she was referencing. 

The photo shows Candace and Val standing on a wooden bridge together. He has his arm wrapped around her shoulder, with his hand resting on, and possibly even grabbing, her breast. 

‘Classic Val,’ she wrote. ‘He approved this post.’

Val, 46, is rarely seen on her Instagram page, and she has taken to calling him ‘unicorn’ because of his reluctance to appear in photos.  

In April, she asked Val to appear in one of her videos as her birthday wish. He obliged and gave her a sweet on-camera kiss. 

Last week, the Hallmark Christmas movie queen posted a snapshot of herself at a miniature golf course with Vale during a romantic getaway. 

‘Praise the Lord for a good husband! Val (the unicorn) snuck me away for a few nights and we had a much needed gloriously beautiful stay-cation,’ she captioned the image. ‘And now… back to the grind (that I also love).’ 

Candace married the retired NHL pro back in June of 1996, and they share a daughter Natasha, 22, and sons Lev, 20, and Maksim, 18. 

She was just 20 when she said ‘I do,’ and her eldest son Lev is following in her footsteps after proposing to his girlfriend Taylor Hutchison in late August. 

The proud mom announced the happy news on Instagram, sharing a photo of Lev down on one knee. She later posted a video montage of her son’s engagement dinner — and it seems she already had grandchildren on her mind. 

‘My family is my everything. I am SO happy for the Hutchisons and the Bures to become family too!’ she wrote in the caption. 

‘Taylor, I promise to be the best mother-in-love you could hope. I’ll only get annoying when it comes to my time with future grandbabies.’
