Ariel Winter Slams Instagram Trolls
Posted On Nov 16, 2015
Modern Family’s teenage star Ariel Winter is the latest celeb to be body shamed over a pic she posted on IG in a bathing suit.
Enjoying a family outing over the weekend, standing along side her adorable young nieces, Winter poses in her bikini and was soon blasted for the post stating she was ‘asking for it.’
17- year old Winter had struggled with her weight both publicly and personally which resulted in breast reduction surgery over the summer.
Winter did not take this lightly. She fired back with a strong stance on body shaming and online bullying:
“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,” she continued. “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!!!!!!”
I love when celebs drop truth bombs on social media trolls. In doing so, Winter showed nothing less of a true lady and an amazing role model for teenagers and adults alike.
