Abigail Breslin aka Chanel No. 5 on Scream Queens made a brave move on social media about her traumatic rape experience and the many reasons why she kept quiet about it.

The 20-year-old actress was triggered to respond to a comment which said "reported rapes are the only rapes that count." In an emotional post, she explained that what happened was a complete shock for her and feared that authorities wouldn't believe her if she reported the abuse because she was in a relationship with her rapist then. Abigail also didn't want her family to carry the burden.

As a result of the devastating event, she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and tries very hard everyday to survive and get through the nightmare.

The actress also shared a diagram showing rape statistics on Instagram which she captioned "#knowthefacts."
