Sarah takes a break from social media
Actor Sarah Hyland is taking a break from social media following the tragic death of her 14year-old cousin Trevor Canaday. The Modern Family star has announced that her decision to temporarily step away from using any of her social media accounts was a result of the “horrible, negative and ignorant words” that Internet trolls commented in relation to Canaday, who was killed last week in Omaha, Nebraska, USA, in an alleged drunk driving accident.
According to reports, “You guys finally did it. Your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy?” she wrote on Twitter, adding, “Staying offline for a while.”
THE ACTOR MENTIONED THAT SHE WOULD BE TEMPORARILY OFFLINE FROM ALL THE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS FOLLOWING THE COMMENTS SHE READ ON THE TRAGIC DEATH OF HER 14-YEAR-OLD COUSIN
On her Instagram story, she posted the emoji of a hand showing the peace sign. The 28-year-old called for those with “negative thoughts or opinions about the tragedy that happened to my family, to keep them to themselves. You don’t know all the details. And how dare you attack when a beautiful life has been lost.”
Over the weekend, the actor 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.”
According to police documents, the driver Jeffrey Eggeling had a blood alcohol concentration of .103, while the legal limit for driving under the influence is .08.
