Sarah Hyland has revealed that she was sexually assaulted by a friend in high school.

The Modern Family star shared her story with the #WhyIDidntReport hashtag – in support of Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week.

Christine has alleged that she was sexually assaulted by US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and she’s received a huge amount of support on social media.

Taking to Twitter, Sarah revealed: “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. 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. #believewomen #metoo #ibelieveher.”

The 27-year-old also showed her support for Christine and other women who have accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct by tweeting: “I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. I believe Julie Swetnick.”

“There is no path forward for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. #BelieveSurvivors #TIMESUP.”
