Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams have sparked controversy after the couple posted a picture from a friend’s wedding where Wells is grabbing the “Modern Family” star’s breasts.
“We take wedding photo booths very seriously… #mcm to the men who love and treat their ladies like queens,” Hyland captioned the shot.
While many fans said the group is “just having fun” others named the #MeToo movement.
“In times of gender balance and women’s rights and respect, we still see pics like this… we are not moving forward with such mentalities,” wrote one person.
Another added, “Like queens = like objects? The dissolution of patriarchal gender relations can’t come soon enough.”
Although no one should be surprised in the age of overreacting.
“Do you even know what the Metoo campaign was about, these women are consenting to this photo. Know the difference,” a user came to Hyland’s defence.
The actress has been a supporter of #MeToo, even sharing her own story when Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified.
“He was a friend. It was New Year’s Eve my senior year of high school. Everyone was drunk. He broke in to the bathroom I was in. I hoped it was a dream but my ripped tights in the morning proved otherwise. I thought no one would believe me. I didn’t want to be called dramatic. After all I didn’t say no. Shock can do that to a person,” she tweeted.
ET Canada has reached out to their reps for comment.
Wells and Hyland became engaged this summer after dating for nearly two years.
