Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale may be the latest actress to join the #Metoo movement after posting a cryptic message on her social media page. Hale's fan are speculating that the actress may have been assaulted after she wrote a heartbreaking note which she removed from her Instagram page and then posted on her Twitter account.
On Jan. 9, it was reported that Hale's house was broken into and the actress lost items worth $15,000. Now, Hale could be facing another horrifying dilemma. The actress shared some thoughts on sexual assault in a note she shared on Thursday, which led to more questions than answers.
"I deleted it from Instagram. But this needs to be heard. 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," Hale wrote.
Hale once again deleted the message from her account.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to offer her support and encouragement after reading the post.
