Sarah Hyland Backlash After Asking For Death Donations

Sarah Hyland has a net worth somewhere in the millions. She gets paid an absurd amount of money per episode of Modern Family. But even with all of the money she’s raking in, she’s having a hard time shelling out cash for her cousin’s funeral. Hyland is either a little off, or has a huge set of testicles tucked in her Victoria Secret. It takes a lot of chutzpah to promote a GoFundMe link for funeral expenses when you obviously have the funds to cover it yourself. Honestly how much does it cost to bury or burn someone? You’re on a hit show with your hand out.

Hyland vented on Twitter on Monday morning, a day after telling her followers that her cousin, Trevor Canaday, had died, writing, “How dare you attack when a beautiful life has been lost.” Hyland announced the death of Canaday on Sunday, writing, “Yesterday my 14 year old cousin was killed by a drunk driver named Jeffrey Eggerling. My Uncle is in the hospital awaiting more surgeries. PLEASE keep your prayers with my family during this horrific time. And please DONATE.”

Though Hyland did not specify the “negative thoughts or opinions” that she took issue with in Monday’s tweet, the actress had been criticized on social media for asking people to donate to a GoFundMe campaign seeking donations for Canaday’s funeral expenses, as well as for medical expenses relating to the collision.

Is Sarah returning the favor for everyone that donates? When I was younger, I found it hard donating to managers dealing with a recently deceased relative when they already make triple what I was making. I find it even harder donating to a millionaire. The most Sarah can ever expect to receive from me with her salary is thoughts and prayers. As in I thought she would be smart enough to foot the bill herself, and I pray she never does anything this dumb again.
