Sarah Hyland is standing up for herself (again!) on social media. The frequently maligned Modern Family star got slammed this time after she posted a shot herself in a one-shoulder pink Zac Posen gown at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, and captioned the post: #funfact I’m wearing TWO pairs of spanx. Why diet? When you can just hide it!"
Not everyone was amused.
One critic wrote: "What an irresponsible post from someone with influence. You are transparent about your problems gaining weight, so imagine how confusing and upsetting this post is to some people. Please consider addressing your mistake, you can do better!"
Another tweeted: "Ummmm, hide what exactly? You are perfectly fine. Maybe a little too skinny. Here have a sandwich!"
Hyland took to Twitter to defend herself, explaining that the double Spanx were deployed to hide a bulge in her lower abdomen from a kidney transplant. She wrote to one critic: "When you have two kidney transplants and are on steroids for life get back to me."
