Don’t mess with her little sister! Sarah Hyland is pretty upset after some photographers allegedly tried to get her to say some not-so-nice things about her ‘Modern Family’ co-star, Ariel Winter.
Sarah Hyland, 26, doesn’t just play 19-year-old Ariel Winter‘s big sister on television, she takes on the protective role in real life, too. The young Modern Family star lashed out on Twitter after a group of photographers allegedly tried to get her to say something negative about her on-screen sister, Ariel, at an airport on May 10.
“Paps at the airport trying to get me to talk sh-t about my girl,” Sarah wrote in a tweet that same day, tagging Ariel’s Twitter account. “Y’all digging for something you’re never gonna get.” Boom! You tell ’em, Sarah! Of course Ariel replied, sending love to her “big sister” with some heart emojis. Check out the tweet exchange below:
Unfortunately this incident comes just days after Ariel faced backlash for wearing a super sexy outfit to a Modern Family event on May 3. The internet immediately turned on Ariel after seeing her in her stunning, cleavage-baring gold ensemble while the rest of the cast was dressed in more casual attire like jeans and button downs. Once she noticed the backlash, Ariel hopped on Instagram to defend her dress choice and shut down any and all haters. “Why TF does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel? Why do I have to be like everyone else? Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?” Ariel asked before offering up some advice to the young men and women following her. “As long as you feel good about yourself that’s what matters. I know I did,” she wrote.
