Sarah Hyland Slams Hater Who Blasted Her for Posting a 'Naked' Photo With Wells Adams

There's nothing like a good ol' Twitter rant to get your point across—I think Sarah Hyland would agree. The Modern Family actress posted a selfie on Instagram Monday night with her no-longer-rumored boyfriend Wells Adams, in which they were laying in bed cuddling with his adorable dog Carl. Sarah and Wells appear to be naked in the pic (maybe they are, maybe they aren't). Thus, comments flooded in from Sarah's followers, and she couldn't let the negativity slide.


Two more reasons to smile again. My big & furry

On Tuesday morning, Sarah went on Twitter to call out the haters and reinforce that she can post whatever she wants. She first shared screenshots of notes from her phone. "Hey guysssss. I'm explaining myself again! Aren't you so happy???? Isn't this what Twitter is for???" she captioned the post.

The actress then explained that she likes to go through her DMs to respond to fans. "Every once in a while I'll go through my direct messages from you guys to see what you're saying and respond! Answer questions. Give advice. Or even just say hello. But I woke up too early to go to work this morning and saw this..."

Sarah posted a screenshot of the direct message. "You can go out with whoever you want," the Instagram user wrote. "But there are limits. Do not you know that some private things, must stay private, and not be shared with the whole world. KEEP YOUR SEXUAL LIFE PRIVATE, we do not necessarily need to know all the details of your personal life. SHIT!!"

In her next tweet, Sarah posted another set of notes, saying she doesn't want to put the commenter "on blast" but the message made her realize the photo could've been inappropriate. "So I just have to say I'm so sorry…FOR POSTING AN ADORABLE PICTURE BECAUSE CARL WAS ACTING LIKE THE NUGGETIEST SNUGGLE BUG!"

All jokes aside, Sarah switched gears to let fans know she actually wants to keep her relationship private. "I do want my privacy," she said. "Especially in my relationships. I've made the mistake in the past on being way too open and talking way too much about them. This time is different. It's special. And I will share what I [deem] 'appropriate' on social media because I still want you all to be updated…You’re people who have had chronic illnesses, eating disorders, [troubled] family situations that Modern Family helps you get through. People who share their stories with me and I love you all for that. So thank you for always [being] so wonderful." How sweet of her, right?

Sarah ended her series of notes with a reminder for anyone that has a problem with nudity. "ONE MORE THING! I just realized I’m being criticized for being naked… which you don’t even know if I am! You can barely see any skin but it’s ok for Instagram models to roll around in the sand ACTUALLY naked? (I mean I’d post that too if I looked like that.) My point is don’t be hypocrites. Either be conservatives on all fronts or FREE THE NIPPLE." Yes, girl! I'm glad she stood up for herself on this one. 

Sarah later tweeted, "I think I really just LOVE a good clap back." You tell 'em, Sarah.

I love Sarah and Wells together, and I say keep the cute posts coming.
