Former Full House Star Candace Cameron Bure blasted Kanye West on Monday for comparing himself to Jesus Christ on his new album, Yeesus.

It was announced that West's sixth album Yeesus would be released on June 18. West's pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian posted a picture of the album cover on Instragram on May 18 but Bure is unlikely to purchase the disc. She appeared on Sway in the Morning on Monday and criticized the rapper for his lack of humility in comparing himself to the almighty.

"That is way too close," she said. "It totally bugs me. I have issues with that."

Bure, just like her older brother Kirk Cameron, is a devout Christian. She expressed her disappointment that West chose this particular title when there were other names available. She felt it hit too close to her faith.

"You could have chosen one that is not one letter off from Jesus," she said.

Bure said that it was obvious West meant to make himself comparable to the deity. It was a comparison that she felt no one had the right to make. Bure said she was humbled by the gratitude of her savior and would never choose to take his name or works in vain.

"I think it's more, it comes from a humility point of view. That I would be humbled enough for what Jesus did for me that I don't want to in any way elevate myself or put myself side by side," she said.

Bure also took exception to West's BFF and frequent collaborator, Jay-Z. Beyoncé's other half calls him 'Hova', a shortened form of Jehova. The star, who rose to fame as DJ Tanner on Full House, felt that Jay-Z was just as disrespectful.

"HOVA for Jehova is also way too close," she said. "It bugs me. It totally bugs me."

Neither West or Jay-Z have responded to Bure's comments, but West has made it clear that the opinions of others do not matter to him. He went on a tirade on May 16 directed at the paparazzi. During the rant, he felt that his music was meant to uplift.

"I only make music that inspires you to be the best you can be -- And I don't want anyone to ask anything else of me," he said.
