"Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland has opened up about her sexual assault that happened when she was in high school.
The 27-year-old actor shared her horrifying ordeal in a Twitter post, using the hashtag #whyididntreport.
"He was a friend. It was New Year's Eve my senior year of high school. Everyone was drunk. He broke in to the bathroom I was in," she wrote.
"I hoped it was a dream but my ripped tights in the morning proved otherwise. I thought no one would believe me. I didn't want to be called dramatic. After all I didn't say no. Shock can do that to a person," she added.
In the past few days, a number of celebrities like Mira Sorvino, Ashley Judd and Cara Delevingne, have used the 'Why I Didn't Report' hashtag to explain why they did not report being sexually assaulted.
