Sarah Hyland has a message for internet trolls: Stop talking about her weight.
The "Modern Family" actress took to Twitter on Wednesday to address the rumors that she suffers from an eating disorder.
In a two-part tweet, Hyland stated that she received a slew of body-shaming comments on an Instagram photo she posted to promote her boyfriend’s clothing line and (ironically) the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
"Buy a shirt and a portion of the proceeds go to the Anti-Bullying Alliance!" Hyland captioned the photo, unaware that the simple promotion would lead to an overwhelming amount of hateful messages.
Hyland mentioned that she doesn't normally comment on rumors, but she felt like she needed to explain herself after receiving an influx of negativity.
"I'd like to address something that has not only been brought up on Twitter, but has been HEAVILY discussed by all of you in my Instagram comments," she began. "That something is my weight."
Hyland continued, "This year has brought a lot of changes and with that, physical changes."
Hyland warned her followers she didn't want to get into detail about her health issues, but she has opened up in the past about her battle with kidney dysplasia.
Kidney dysplasia is a condition that occurs when one's kidneys don't properly develop in the womb.
During an appearance on "Good Morning America," Hyland said she struggled with symptoms of exhaustion for 12 years before she received a kidney transplant from her father in 2012. She revealed she was "in a lot of pain a lot of the time."
But her health battles haven't stopped fans from telling Hyland to "eat a burger."
However, the solution is not that simple; her body is literally out of her control.
"I have been told I can't work out," Hyland wrote. "Which, for me, is very upsetting ... I love to be STRONG."
Doctors promptly put Hyland on bed rest, and a lack of muscle movement has drastically changed the actress' frame.
"I've basically been on bed rest for the past few months," Hyland wrote. "I lost a lot of muscle mass. My circumstances have put me in a place where I'm not in control of what my body looks like."
"No, that's not Photoshop. Those are my legs. Those are my arms."
Now Hyland is being accused of "promoting anorexia."
"I've been accused of promoting anorexia in, ironically enough, an anti-bullying post," Hyland continued, referencing the aforementioned Instagram photo. "I want young girls to know that that's NOT my intention. I posted a picture of my boyfriend's apparel line, in which part of the proceeds go to the anti-bully alliance, and in return, [I] am bullied. Which made me laugh, but then it dawned on me that young girls are reading posts that are saying that I'm promoting anorexia due to my weight."
"While these comments don't affect me, they may affect others."
But Hyland isn't "happy" with her changing body; she said she's extremely frustrated by her weight loss.
"You may wonder, am I bothered by my appearance right now?" she wrote. "Well, it's never fun to look in the mirror and see your hard work at the gym fade away, or have your legs be the size of one's arms."
She's currently taking Prednisone, which has extreme side effects.
But the side effects serve as a reminder that her medicine is doing its job.
"I don't mind when you say that I look pregnant or fat," Hyland insisted.
"Because I know that my face is swollen from medication that is saving my life."
Hyland has come to terms with the fact that she can't make everyone happy.
No matter what Hyland looks like, she's criticized.
"I will never have enough curves to be called a woman, and I will always be a slut for wearing a push up bra."
But she refuses to let the critics bring her down.
"Don't let others' comments alter any part of you!" Hyland concluded. "The world may be falling apart, but it's up to use to pull it back together. Smile. Laugh. Love. Be happy. Support your peers. Love. Work hard. Be confident. Love. Adopt puppies! Tell your mum you appreciate her. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE."
