Ariel Winter is once again fighting the good fight against body shamers.
The 17-year-old Modern Family star took to Instagram after a cute bikini photo she posted with her nieces received some negative comments.
“Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this?” Ariel wrote. “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.’”
Ariel continues, “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!!!!!!”
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Ariel’s reaction?
