Seaver Family Smackdown of the Day: Tracey Gold and Alan Thicke have taken to their respective Twitter accounts to respond to homophobic remarks recently made by their Growing Pains co-star, Kirk Cameron.

In an interview with Piers Morgan on his CNN talk show last week, Cameron said he thought homosexuality was “unnatural,” “detrimental” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Gold, who played Cameron’s sister Carol Seaver on the popular 80’s sitcom tweeted an unequivocal rejection of her TV sibling’s anti-gay sentiments. “I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. #NOH8 #LOVE,” she wrote.

Alan Thicke, patriarch of the Seaver clan, posted a more indirect, but no less unambiguous rebuke of Cameron, saying “I’ll deal with Kirk’s comments as soon as I recover from Rush Limbaugh’s.”

Perhaps the best burn of all came from Sports Night actor Josh Charles, who himself was not a Growing Pains cast member: “I know Growing Pains was only a tv show, but I have to think both Alan Thicke & Joanna Kerns must feel they failed as parents tonight.”

We know what Thicke thinks, but as-yet no word from Mrs. Seaver.

For his part, Piers Morgan praised Cameron for his remarks, calling him “pretty brave” for expressing his “honest” beliefs.

    I am just surprised they referenced Sports Night instead of The Good Wife for Josh Charles.
