In a since-deleted statement on Instagram that she later re-posted (then deleted) on Twitter, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale revealed that she had been sexually assaulted last night.

“I deleted it from Instagram. But this needs to be heard,” the 28-year-old actress wrote alongside the following statement:
“I never understood sexual assault until tonight. I always sympathized, 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.”
This is so sad and upsetting. Here’s hoping her assailant is quickly caught and brought to justice.
