Sarah Hyland‘s enviable collection of glasses frames has been popping up everywhere from red carpets to gym selfies lately for a very, very good reason: They help her see. And when one troll tried to question her functional fashion choice, her boyfriend, Wells Adams, stepped in to defend her with the perfect response.
On Sunday (October 7), Adams posted a photo of he and Hyland attending an event where she accessorized her gown with a set of oversized black frames. A troll commented on the photo, “I don’t get the glasses look at all?” To which Adams flawlessly replied, “Oh, it’s so she can see s**t.”
Fans jumped to her defense, calling the Modern Family star an “inspiration” for repeatedly showing off her glasses in formal or public settings. “@sarahhyland from a fellow girl who is blind w/o glasses or contacts I love that you wear glasses out to events and make them look stylish!!!!” wrote one fan. “I’ve been kicked out of my contacts for two months bc of a cornea injury so she’s major inspo but also there’s not too much to “get” about choosing to wear glasses or not.”
This isn’t the first time Adams has stepped in to defend Hyland against trolls. When someone commented on a recent bikini photo of the actress telling her to “eat a donut,” Adams replied by telling the troll to “eat sh*t.” Hyland screenshotted the exchange and posted it to Twitter, writing, “I love @WellsAdams.”
If you follow Hyland or Adams on Instagram (which, by the way, is highly recommended), you know that this is just one example of the adorableness that happens between them on a daily basis. A few weeks ago — long before glasses gate — Hyland took to the app to post a sweet tribute to her boyfriend of of a year. “Here’s to the good men. The men that support us. The men that believe us. The ones who know right from wrong,” she wrote. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤️.”
