"I just had to remind people that there are real people with real feelings behind the screen and I’m not posting for your negativity. In that instance, I was simply sharing a family photo that was so beautiful to me. Even a hint of people criticizing my family picture I wasn’t going to take."

Bure’s response comes after a Jan. 2 incident, in which social media users criticized the actress and her family portrait on Instagram. The 44-year-old was none too pleased when some claimed the photo looked "weird" and like "a Ralph Lauren" ad, while others mocked some of her kids' expressions.

"Wow- I post a family photo and you all find everything you don’t like about it or can make fun of. Do better than that. Please," Bure responded at the time.

The actress also recently spoke to E!’s "Daily Pop," explaining that despite her celebrity status "people forget" she's a "real person."

"I was simply sharing a family Christmas card. And it's so strange to me that people have the audacity to write horrible and negative comments. Like, you would never say that to someone's face," Bure told the outlet.
