Sarah Hyland Is Taking A Break From Social Media After She Got Shit For Asking Fans To Pay For Her Cousin’s Funeral
Sarah Hyland’s family is going through a tragedy, her 14-year-old cousin Trevor Canaday was killed in a drunk driving accident in Omaha, NE on Saturday night, and Trevor’s father and her uncle Bryan Canaday is in the hospital and needed several surgeries. While you might think that Sarah is currently using her hands to light prayer candles for Trevor, Bryan and her family, she’s been using her hands to slap down people who are calling her out for asking for donations for her cousin’s funeral costs when she makes $100,000 an episode on Modern Family.
It feels like not a month goes by when I don’t read a headline about how Sarah Hyland is shitting on someone who has done her wrong. Sarah has dragged CVS Pharmacy for not having her medicine ready, and her boyfriend dragged trolls for skinny-shaming her. Now she’s dragging the people who are calling her a cheap ass.
Over the weekend, Sarah twice tweeted a link to the GoFundMe that was set up by Trevor’s mother and sisters to help pay for his funeral and medical expenses, and asked her 1.5 million followers to help out.
Yesterday my 14 year old cousin was killed by a drunk driver named Jeffrey Eggerling. My Uncle is in the hospital awaiting more surgeries. PLEASE keep your prayers with my family during this horrific time. And please DONATE https://t.co/mwlaIvUYrs

In a second tweet, Sarah wished for the alleged drunk driver to rot in hell, because she says he’s been busted for DUI twice before and tried to run from the scene after Trevor, who was wearing a seatbelt, was killed.
The GoFundMe’s current goal is $25,000 and it has raised a little over $37,000 so far. Sarah is listed as a donator and it says she gave $1,000. It also says that her Modern Family co-stars Ariel Winter and Sofia Vergara donated. Ariel donated $2,500 and Sofia donated $1,000. If you glance at the comments under that tweet, you’ll see some people saying that she’s pulling some tacky moves by asking for money when she can easily pay for the funeral herself. Sarah must read her mentions, because she asked the critics to have a seat in the back and shut their lips when it comes to shit they know nothing about.
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.

And Sarah stayed looking at her mentions, because eventually the balls of hate being thrown at her caused her to run off of Twitter…. for 24 hours. “A while” in SHT (Sarah Hyland Time) must mean one day, because she’ll be back tomorrow to post a video.
You guys finally did it. Your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy? Staying offline for a while. I have a special announcement and video releasing on Wednesday I believe. So. There’s that. ✌?

We don’t know the whole story. Maybe Sarah gave more money to Trevor’s family privately, who knows. But I do know that Sarah has been on Twitter since 2009 so she knows what happens there. But still, every time she logs in, she should have to click okay on this security prompt:
Hello, welcome to Twitter. Just a reminder that if you dare to look in your mentions, you may see people saying shitty things, shitty things that may hurt your feelings. So if it’s worth it to you to tweet about poop dreams and your boyfriend, proceed. Also, tell your co-star Sofia Vergara to tweet more pictures of her husband’s nipples. Thank you.
