Sarah Hyland Defends Wearing Spanx - Claps Back At Trolls Who Skinny Shamed Her
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland is not here for the haters, especially after all of her medical issues.
The brunette beauty attended the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty over the weekend and decided to share some photos from the event on social media. Hyland looked gorgeous in a pink Zac Posen gown. The actress even kept it real with her followers. She shared that she had a little help looking so fabulous.
"I'm wearing TWO pairs of spanx. Why diet? When you can just hide it!" she captioned her Instagram post.
Commenters wasted no time coming after the 28-year-old for her caption. Oh yes, the haters were out in full force slamming Hyland for being insensitive, as well as shamming her for being skinny and wearing spanx.
"Rethink the caption, please! That's super problematic. What does that teach people?" wrote emilyminnismusic.
"How about you're probably lying and don't have anything on. You weigh like 90lbs. Just be real," said shell_e78
"Fun fact: most ridiculous thing I've ever heard she doesn't have a ounce of fat she's just so annoying lol," shared carleymorgan0122
Anyone who followers the actress knows two things. One she loves to joke around, especially at her own expense. Second, Hyland has had two kidney transplants and a slew of medical issues that wreaked havoc on her physically. However, she continues to plow through, work hard on a hit TV show and enjoy life with her boyfriend, Wells Adams .
Since the Dirty Dancing star has been through so much, she is not afraid to speak her mind, and that is precisely what she did to the haters.
"When you have two kidney transplants and are on steroids for life get back to me," she wrote in response to a nasty Tweet, which has since been deleted.
Thankfully there was a flood of love for Sarah Hyland amidst the trolls who jumped all over her for joking about wearing spanx. Fans came to her defense and continuously showed their love for her, which she much appreciated.
In the middle of all the drama, several followers realized her choice to wear spanx was not about her weight but hiding her bump from the transplants. These knowledgeable people called out the fact in her defense, which turned out to be the exact reason the starlet was wearing two pairs of spanx.
