Modern Family is in Australia shooting a vacation episode and on Tuesday, Qantas threw the cast a party at The Sebel Pier One in Sydney. What was meant to be a fun occasion turned into a kind of awful one when a fan groped Sarah Hyland’s breasts. The 23-year-old screamed, “Don’t touch me there!,” before security stepped in and turned the matter over to the cops. Hyland eventually left the event in tears via the rear door.
Sorry to all the fans outside the #qantas event that I didn't get to say hi to but I had to leave due to an inappropriate touch of a fan

I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often. Every time there’s an event like this, you can see the fans behind a flimsy steel barricade pawing at the air trying to get the attention of whatever celebrity is in the area. They’re like caged animals waiting for their chance to grab fresh meat. You wouldn’t expect a lion to not take your arm if you offer it to it, would you?
Anyway, Sarah Hyland’s boyfriend Matt Prokop said he hopes to god he doesn’t see the titty grabber next week. Presumably because he’s going to punch him in the face.
All Sarah wanted to do tonight was say hi to the girls who were waiting outside one douche can ruin it for everyone. Goodnight.

It’s nice that her boyfriend is so protective, but what are the chances of that actually happening. The most he’d probably do is get up in his face and yell at him and that’s only if he’s slightly bigger than the dude. Otherwise, he’d just tell his friends to pretend to hold him back like I do.
