Star of popular show Pretty Little Liars Lucy Hale took to social media to share an ambiguous message that openly talked about a terrifying experience and how it affected her emotionally and mentally. The star seemed to suggest that she was sexually assaulted and reading it was super heartbreaking!
‘I never understood sexual assault until tonight. I’ve always sympathized, but never truly felt the pain of it until right now,’ Lucy started.
Soon after she shared the confession, the post was deleted.
However, a few minutes later, she decided to repost it, captioning it: ‘this needs to be heard.’
Her initial comment went on revealing that: ‘My dignity and pride were broken. I’m completely at a loss for words. I feel for anybody that has felt this kind of pain I feel right now. But I promise I’ll not let a moment go by that I do not try to make a difference.’
Oh no! It sounds like she went through something truly traumatizing and we hope she is doing Okay now.
Thankfully, the bad experience motivated her to push forward and make a change instead of causing the actress to want to isolate herself from the world.
As you must know already, Hale’s post comes following other hundreds of Hollywood stars and far more regular women worldwide speaking out about their experiences with sexual harassment and assault as part of the #MeToo movement.
The hashtag has managed to give a voice to so many women out there and to bring awareness to the so-called ‘rape culture’ and the abuse of one’s power which were so unknowingly present in society.
We are yet to find out more about what exactly happened to Lucy.
