HT Cafe - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
