‘Modern Family’ Star Sarah Hyland Shares Her ‘Why I Didn’t Report’ Story

“I hoped it was a dream but my ripped tights in the morning proved otherwise,” actress posts on Twitter

“Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland stood in solidarity with Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford on Thursday, putting her support behind Ford and sharing her own story.

In a Twitter post on Thursday, Hyland — who plays Haley Dunphy on the ABC sitcom — shared an incident from her past, under the hashtag #whyididntreport, which has recently gained prominence as women shared their reasoning for not reporting previous assaults and abuses to the authorities.

“He was a friend. It was New Year’s Eve my senior year of high school. Everyone was drunk,” Hyland’s post read.

“He broke in to the bathroom I was in. I hoped it was a dream but my ripped tights in the morning proved otherwise,” the post continued.

“I didn’t want to be called dramatic,” Hyland’s message continued. “After all I didn’t say no. Shock can do that to a person.”

The message concluded with the hashtags #believewomen, #metoo and #ibelieveher.”

In another Twitter post on Thursday, Hyland said she supported Ford and other Kavanaugh accusers.

“I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. I believe Julie Swetnick. There is no path forward for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. #BelieveSurvivors #TIMESUP,” Hyand wrote, punctuating the sentiment with an image of the scales of justice.
