Fans are extremely concerned about Lucy Hale after she posted an alarming tweet last night that suggests that she may have been sexually abused.
“I never understood sexual assault until tonight,” she posted on her Twitter and Instagram.
“I always sympathised but never truly felt the pain of it until right now. My dignity and pride was broken. I am completely at a loss for words. I feel for anyone that has felt this pain that I feel right now. But I promise. I will not let a moment go by that I don’t try to make a difference.”
As the internet started to react to Lucy's message with great concern, the Pretty Little Liars star removed the post, leaving people to wonder what had happened.
