The latest star to join “The View” is the latest star to get into hot water for comments she made on the show.
On Wednesday’s edition, Candace Cameron Bure compared Internet trolling and cyber bullying to rape.
"I've never been more verbally abused in my life than on Twitter, and specifically in the last few months, having come on this show," she said. “A lot of people don't agree with me. That's fine, don't agree with me. But you don't have to verbally abuse me and rape me."
“That’s what they do to me on Twitter,” she continued, opening herself up to even more Twitter comments.
Yeah, Candace Cameron Bure, getting mean tweets are NOTHING like being raped. Stop comparing everything that hurts your feefees to rape!

The comments were prompted during the Hot Topics segment as the hosts discussed Lena Dunham’s decision to hand over control of her Twitter. Dunham said she received hateful comments after posting a photo of herself in her boyfriend’s underwear, labeling the responses as “verbal violence.”
Whoopi Goldberg was not surprised with the backlash Dunham received.
“The minute you put yourself out there in someone’s underwear, you can’t be surprised,” Goldberg said.
It's not the first time a celebrity has compared life in the spotlight to being raped.
