Jodie Sweetin and Miley Cyrus have both responded to the backlash that ensued when Cyrus posted a photo of Sweetin from several years ago, which shows her partying with friends and straddling a man’s lap.
The original post was captioned “Current mood: Fuller House” and showed Jodie sitting on an unidentified man’s lap at what appears to be a party. Sweetin has been open about her past drug use during her wilder days, but is now five years sober and is married with children. After Cyrus shared the photo on Instagram, fans took to social media to condemn the post, saying it was cruel; now, Sweetin and Cyrus have both responded, with Sweetin saying she doesn’t pay attention to negative things anymore.
“I don’t pay attention to negative stuff. I have so much good stuff going on in my life right now that I try not to pay attention,” Sweetin told E! News.
The Fuller House star does have a lot of good things going on these days; not only does she have a successful reboot on Netflix (that just got picked up for a second season), she’ll also appear on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.
Miley Cyrus, meanwhile, came back to Instagram to defend her post, saying she simply thought Sweetin looked like she was having a good time in the photos.
“Only you freaks take this as shaming! To me it looks like Stephanie is having a f**king gay ol time!”
Fuller House has earned quite a fanbase of loyal followers eager to feed their nostalgia, and while the show hasn’t gotten the best critical reviews, fans seem very happy with it. Most of the original cast returned for the reboot, which follows DJ (Candace Cameron Bure) as she navigates life as a single mom following the death of her husband.
