For fellow fans of the show, I’m sure you’re all just as excited as I am to see what comes out of Modern Family filming in Australia, but some fans seem to be getting a little too excited.
The popular ABC show Modern Family is currently filming in Sydney, Australia for a special episode. Some of the cast members arrived before the filming started to have a little fun, like 15-year-old Nolan Gould who hit Bondi Beach to try his hand at surfing. Other cast members tried to have fun too, but proved to have a more difficult time.
Sarah Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy on the show, was out at a party with her fellow cast members when an over eager fan made a grab at her chest after asking for her autograph. Definitely not cool, dude. The party was being thrown by Qantas Airlines and the cast was in attendance to promote their show. Sarah left as soon as the incident happened and sent out a tweet to her fans.
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

Sarah’s boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop, was also a little miffed as you might imagine. He tweeted “To the asshole who assaulted Sarah tonight I hope to God you don’t see next week.” I’d definitely say he gets the “Protective Boyfriend” award. Lesson in fan protocol: use your words only, please.
