Sarah Hy­land takes a break from so­cial me­dia amid trolling

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Days af­ter her cousin was killed in a car crash, ac­tor Sarah Hy­land is dis­tanc­ing her­self from the so­cial me­dia for a while.

The Mod­ern Fam­ily star was trolled with re­spect to the 14-year-old Trevor Cana­day, who was killed late Satur­day night in Omaha, Ne­braska, in an al­leged drunk driv­ing ac­ci­dent.

Hy­land an­nounced her de­ci­sion on Mon­day that she was step­ping away from the in­ter­net due to the “hor­ri­ble neg­a­tive ig­no­rant words”. “You guys fi­nally did it. Your hor­ri­ble neg­a­tive ig­no­rant words have bro­ken me. Happy? Stay­ing off­line for a while. I have a spe­cial an­nounce­ment and video re­leas­ing on Wed­nes­day I be­lieve. So. There’s that,” Hy­land, 28, wrote on Twit­ter.

Ear­lier Mon­day, she asked the trolls to keep their opin­ions about the tragedy to them­selves. “You don’t know all the de­tails. And how dare you at­tack when a beau­ti­ful life has been lost,” the ac­tor added.

Over the week­end, Hy­land an­nounced on so­cial me­dia that Cana­day “was killed by a drunk driver”.

She said her un­cle, who was also in the car, “is still in the hos­pi­tal in need of more surg­eries”.
