Lucy Hale Hints That She Was Sexually Assaulted Yesterday

Celebrities have been confronting their sexual assault past for months now. Most of their stories are years old.

Lucy Hale is now sharing her story. It is less than 24 hours old.

In a deleted instagram and Twitter post, here was what the 28-year-old actress wrote:

“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.”

Obviously, there is not a lot of detail here. It alludes to her being sexually assaulted on Thursday night, but that’s not 100 percent clear. It’s possible that a friend told her her sexual assault story, and Hale “felt the pain” because it happened to someone so close to her.

As unlikely as that sounds, I’m just trying to look at this post from a different angle. Everyone will speculate and say that it was Hale who was assaulted, but that’s not the only potential reason for her post.

It sucks either way, especially if it was Hale and is did happen on Thursday night. That would just prove that the Time’s Up and #MeToo movement still has a long way to go because men continue to suck.

If it was Hale who was assaulted, it just adds to her rough month. Her house was burglarized on Jan. 9. Someone broke in and stole $15,000 worth of jewelry and purses. Hale was not present at the time of the break in.
