Kirk Cameron vows to carry on carolling but is blasted as ‘growing pain’ on Twitter after maskless protests in California

Kirk Cameron was blasted as a ‘growing pain’ on Twitter after the actor hosted another mask-less Christmas carol protest in California.

The 50-year-old actor organized at least his second recent potential superspreader event Tuesday outside a coronavirus testing center in Thousand Oaks, California.

Roughly 100 mask-less carol singers gathered after the Growing Pains star posted on social media, ‘Let your voice be heard at this peaceful protest praising the Prince of Peace’.

‘Kirk Cameron turned out to be a ‘Growing Pain’. smh,’ a Twitter user posted in response to the protest.

The Los Angeles native is best known for his portrayal of Mike Seaver on the ABC sitcom Growing Pains from 1985 to 1992.

Another Twitter user noted that Cameron had gone from Growing Pains to ‘Breathing Pains’.

The evangelical Christian also was chastised on Twitter for hosting the gathering while coronavirus cases have been surging statewide.

‘We do not condone this irresponsible — yet constitutionally protected — peaceful protest event planned. We share your concern and have notified the Sheriff’s office. As well, we have reached out to the event planner to ask that they do not use The Oaks as their venue,’ the statement said.

Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on Wednesday was asked about Cameron’s Christmas caroling event with unmasked singers ignoring social distancing in Ventura County where COVID-19 cases have been spiking.

‘I’m at a loss of words at this point. It’s very irresponsible and very dangerous and it’s unnecessary. We’re in the middle of a pandemic,’ Ferrer said according to Deadline.

Cameron earlier this month teamed up with Sing It Louder USA to host Sunday demonstrations voicing his frustration that California Governor Gavin Newsom has banned mass gatherings such as caroling into the holiday season.

California imposed a new regional stay-at-home order in early December that is based on ICU capacity and shuttered or restricted capacity levels for a huge swath of businesses. 

Cameron has been married since 1991 to his Growing Pains co-star Chelsea Noble, 56, and they have six children together.
