Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland is currently dating Bachelor in Paradise's Wells Adams, and their relationship is pretty much picture perfect.
Like, look at it:
Mots people would look at this photo of a couple and their adorable dog (whose name is Carl, FYI) snuggling and either think it was cute or get wildly jealous if they haven't been snuggled in a while.
But apparently, some people saw it and thought, "SEX SEX SEX!!"
Hyland post screenshots to Twitter of someone admonishing her in her Instagram DMs about sharing her "sex life." If that photo is what sex looks like to you, please see a therapist immediately.
Hyland decided to explain why she found this so very offensive in a series of notes to her fans:
Not putting her on blast. She just brought to my attention that that picture I posted might have been inappropriate since we’re in bed. So I just have to say I’m so sorry … FOR POSTING AN ADORABLE PICTURE BECAUSE CARL WAS ACTING LIKE THE NUGGETIEST SNUGGLE BUG!
Couldn’t let that moment pass without getting a picture … The only things I share about my (life) with you all is through Instagram and Twitter. I do want my privacy. Especially in 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. Because you guys are the greatest fans in the world. I even hate saying fans…because you’re people. 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.
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 conservative on all fronts or FREE THE NIPPLE.
Phew! That's a lot, but it boils down to don't be a freak, it was just a pic of her dog and boyfriend, nothing sexual was happening and hey, being naked ain't no sin. Free the nipple!
Hyland also knows she doesn't owe anyone an explanation, BUT:
Hell yeah. Clap right on back, sister.
