Whether she’s posing in a bikini or lounging in sweats, Sarah Hyland can’t win with misogynist social media trolls. So she decided to call out their behavior in an effort to expose the sexist double standards women face on social media.
On Thursday, the 27-year-old actress took to Twitter to rant about the infuriating double standards she’s come across as a woman. The “Modern Family” star slammed the idea that she’s expected to talk about “The Bachelor,” while keeping quiet about politics. Hyland also lashed out at critics who call her a “whore” for posting bikini pictures on Instagram, but condemn her for not trying hard enough when she posts makeup-free pictures in sweatpants.
“Twitter criticism. 1.) no one wants your political opinion. You’re dumb. 2.) TELL US what you think about the bachelor. You’re funny. 3.) *posts picture in sweatpants* If you just tried a little harder you’d be pretty 4.) *posts a picture in bikini* You’re a whore. Burn in Hell,” Hyland tweeted.
Hyland also scolded her friend, actor Bryan Craig, for asking if “sweet girls exist anymore.” Hyland explained that “sweet” is typically associated with innocence and naivety, while kind, caring, and compassionate are better traits to look for.
“Sweet just sounds so innocent and naive. Kind. Caring. Compassionate. Look for those,” Hyland wrote.
It’s clear that Hyland isn’t taking shit from any man, so misogynists better cut their shit out and stay away from her.
