Sarah Hyland Taking Social Media Break After Cousin's Death

She’s had enough. Sarah Hyland is stepping away from social media after receiving backlash for asking fans for donations to help her family following the death of her 14-year-old cousin Trevor Canaday, who was killed by an alleged drunk driver on Saturday, December 1.

The Modern Family star, 28, took to Twitter on Monday, December 3, to express her dismay over the way people reacted to her request for contributions to a GoFundMe created by Trevor’s mother and sisters. “You guys finally did it. Your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy? Staying offline for a while,” she wrote, before adding, “I have a special announcement and video releasing on Wednesday I believe. So. There’s that.”
