Ariel Winter Hits Back At Those Claiming She's 'Asking For It' In Instagram Snap
Really? Are people still doing this?
Ariel Winter has quite simply shut down haters on Instagram, after she received beyond unnecessary comments on a bikini snap she posted at the weekend.
Sharing the below photo, the Modern Family actress was reportedly targeted by trolls who said she was 'asking for it' and that she should 'put some clothes on'.
"Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this? The height of a girl's skirt or whatever she is wearing for that matter, does not imply what she is asking for," she wrote in response.
Adding: "It sickens me to think at 17 years old, a photo of myself with my nieces is suggesting that I'm "asking for it". I typically never give power to the mean things people bravely say behind their computer screens on the Internet, but this is for the girls who are constantly bullied whether it be online or at school…"
"You are not asking for anything because of what you are wearing- you are expressing yourself and don't you ever think you deserve the negativity as the consequence to what you are wearing- YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL," she said.
"Celebrate you and don't let anyone's comments allow you to think less of yourself. Us girls have to stick together!!!!!!"
We couldn't agree more.
