Sarah Hyland Takes Break From Social Media: 'Your Horrible Negative Ignorant Words Have Broken Me'

Another celebrity is taking a break from social media.

It's been a rough and emotional week already for Modern Family star Sarah Hyland. As the Inquisitr reported yesterday, the actress' 14-year-old cousin, Trevor Canaday, was killed after the car that he and his father were traveling in was struck by a drunk driver over the weekend. Though he was wearing a seatbelt at the time, Canaday was ejected from the vehicle and passed away from his injuries. Trevor's father, Sarah's uncle, remains hospitalized and will need to undergo multiple surgeries before being released.

Over the weekend, Sarah shared with fans that her cousin was killed by a drunk driver and she even called out the driver, who reportedly fled the scene, by name. And just yesterday, Hyland told her fans that she was sick of everyone commenting on her cousin's death when they didn't have all the facts.

"I'd like to ask those who have 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," she wrote.

Well, apparently some fans still did not get the message and last night, and the 28-year-old told fans that she needed to take a break from social media altogether.

"You guys finally did it. Your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy?" Sarah tweeted.

"Staying offline for a while. I have a special announcement and video releasing on Wednesday I believe. So. There's that."

"Please keep in mind that there are many of us who absolutely adore you."

Though Sarah did not specifically say what comments fans were making got under her skin, it appears as though many of her followers believe that Sarah is upset over the backlash she received for sharing the Go Fund Me page for her cousin. Some took time to comment and ask why Sarah is asking her fans for money when she does pretty well for herself as an actress.

Thoughts go out to Sarah's family during this difficult time.
