What do Maureen Flannigan, Keith Coogan, and Josie Davis have in common? Aside from being former child stars from neon-splattered ’80s sitcoms, the three are all CCOKCs (pronounced exactly how you think it is): Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron.
In a new Funny Or Die video, the erstwhile teen thespians – including Kenn Michael (The Parent ‘Hood), Brice Beckham (Mr. Belvedere), Jeremy Licht (The Hogan Family), and a surprisingly hot Christine Lakin (Step by Step) – join together in solidarity against their former peer Kirk Cameron, whose incendiary remarks about homosexuals launched the wrath of a thousand seven child stars.
“We’re pledging to raise awareness about a serious threat to our civil rights: Kirk Cameron’s stupid opinions,” say the actors from the ’80s and ’90s. “As former child stars ourselves, we don’t want to be associated with that horses—.” Watch the video below, lest I spoil more of what’s spewed from the mouths of the poster children of a lost era.
