Ariel Winter Sends A Message To Body Shamers And Girls Everywhere

Modern Family star Ariel Winter recently posted a picture of herself with her two nieces on a boat. She is wearing a bandeau-style bikini in the picture and received a whole bunch of negative comments. For the record, this is the picture that everyone had an “issue” with.

After seeing the negative comments pouring in, Winter decided to take a stand. She followed up by posting a picture of the back of a girl’s leg with words like “provocative” and “flirty” in association to hemline and perception. “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 captioned the picture. ” 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. Celebrate you and don’t let anyone’s comments allow you to think less of yourself. Us girls have to stick together!!!!!!”

This isn’t the first time Winter took a stand against body shamers. She recently applauded Ariana Grande for sticking up for herself when people were negatively commenting about her figure.
