Modern Family actress Ariel Winter is a very beautiful and talented young star but she has been making the headlines more for her personal life than she has for her acting talents this year. Ariel made headlines earlier this year, when it was revealed that the 17-year-old star had decided to go under the knife and have a breast reduction, which received a lot of interest.
Now, the latest news to follow Ariel Winter, sees this young star hitting back at the online trolls, who have attacked her over a picture she posted on Instagram. Ariel shared a picture of herself in a bikini, along with her two young nieces, who were also in swimsuits and life jackets, which led to some people to suggest that the picture was inappropriate.
Winter took to her official Instagram account to defend herself, posting a new picture, along with the caption, "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. It sickens me to think at 17 years old, a photo of myself with my nieces is suggesting that I'm 'asking for it'."
She added, "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. Celebrate you and don't let anyone's comments allow you to think less of yourself. Us girls have to stick together!!!!!!"
While we do feel for Ariel Winter and we can understand what she is saying, it is never good to give into these trolls who only say the negative things that they do in order to get a rise out of people. By reacting, you are giving them what they want.
