Ariel Winter Hits Out At Paparazzi And Bodyshamers In Lengthy Instagram Rant
She's had enough of being told what to wear.
Ariel Winter has taken to Instagram with a rant addressed at the people who feel the need to comment on her outift choices while she's been following around by the paparazzi.
Let's all get checking out an update from MTV News...
The actress hasn't held back about the fact that people tear apart her wardrobe, and has hit out people who accused her of sexualising herself. "Sometimes I wish people would realise... I am not TRYING to be featured on snapchat, I am not trying to be pap'd everywhere I go, I am literally just LIVING and unfortunately, I can't do that without paparazzi following me around everyday.
"I'm not trying to show you my ass in shorts when I go to the grocery store," she said. "I'm trying to live my life. People wear shorts. People have wardrobe malfunctions. No one is perfect. I'm not a stylist! I don't knwo what to wear everyday so I look "appropriate" or "fashionable." Also, screw having to always look appropriate or fashionable. For what?"
The 19-year-old didn't specify what kickstarted the rant, but it's worth mentioning that a bunch of trolls had recently criticised her cut-out outift at the 2017 Emmys.
"Who gets to decide what is appropriate or fashionable???? i wear what I like and no-one should fault me for that. I don't want people to constantly see me in the news for going to dinner, or grocery shopping, or anything. I want to be in the news when I ASK for it by going to a publicised event, or EVEN BETTER, when I have work out/coming out.
Ariel then commented on a recent interview she gave to The Hollywood Reporter in which she claimed that her mother sexualised her at a young age. At the time, Ariel said she was dressed in "the smallest miniskirts, sailor suits, low-cut things, the shortest dresses you've ever seen."
The rant continued: "I was a CHILD being dressed like I was 24. I was 8-13 years old. I wasn't an adult as I am now. As you mature at 16, 17, 18, you further develop your own identity, And just because I DECIDE to show my body occasionally doesn't mean I'm unintelligent or that I'm talentless or that I have no self-respect.
Pointing out that she refuses to live her life on other people's terms, Ariel concluded: "Do whatever you want people, just strive to please YOURSELF and NO-ONE ELSE. Anyways, rant over."
