Jeremy Miller, who played younger brother Ben Seaver on the sitcom “Growing Pains,” has blasted his co-star Kirk Cameron for his controversial caroling events.
Cameron, 50, has gotten flak for recently hosting not one but two Christmas caroling events in California, attended by mostly non-mask-wearing revelers at a time when Southern California hospitals are filled to capacity with patients suffering from COVID-19.
“While I will always love my brother Kirk,” Miller exclusively told Page Six over email, “I could not disagree more with his holding these maskless events at a time when safety and concern for others is an extreme priority.”
“I truly couldn’t be more disappointed in him,” the 44-year-old somberly ended the note.
Miller, who co-hosts a podcast called “The Xander Effect,” isn’t the only “Growing Pains” star to express concern.
Last week, Tracey Gold, who played Cameron and Miller’s bookish on-screen sister Carol Seaver, tweeted, “Check with my dear brother Mike. @Kirk Cameron I want you to know that I refuse to be your brilliant sister. I care about you and your family. Wear a mask. Stay home and then sing.”
Meanwhile, Cameron’s real-life sister Candace Cameron Bure tweeted on Christmas Eve that she did not attend the caroling events but stood up for her family in light of the criticism.
“I did not attend any recent caroling events,” the “Full House” star, 44, wrote. “Also, I choose to follow the greater guidelines by wearing a mask and social distance when I’m in public. However, I don’t appreciate the vile tweets about my family. I believe respectful dialogue is the key to being heard. Stay safe.”
