Ariel Winter is not interested in hearing about her fashion choices from critics and she's fired back at them for their critiques.
In an Instagram photo Winter posted, the young actress was wearing a lacy top and a pair of "booty" shorts. This apparently set off a chain of criticisms from her followers, as first reported by Us Weekly.
Responding, Winter wrote on Twitter, "Pretty annoyed about the focus on the fact that I wear shorts and the commentary that I’m ‘squeezing’ into them or the idea that it’s not okay for me to wear shorts."
She continued, "It’s SUMMER. Get over it. It’s hot, I’m obviously going to wear minimal clothes. I’m not going to suffer in a turtleneck to please anyone."
Winter has dealt with fashion and body shame critics in the past, so she shot back, "I’m not a whore because I wear shorts and tank tops. I’m a normal girl. Also, I’m not ‘squeezing’ into anything. My shorts fit me and everything I’m doing is just fine."
The 19-year-old also took up the defense of other girls who've suffered unsolicited criticism, saying, "Please leave young women alone. We’re just living our lives. It’s really troubling that we even have to deal with this kind of stuff nowadays."
She ended by exclaiming, "Please stop criticizing everything everyone does!!!!! Rant over!"
Winter is obviously most well-known as Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, she recently turned up opposite Hollywood Icon Burt Reynolds in the indie film Dog Years.
Dog Years is described as, "An aging, former movie star is forced to face the reality that his glory days are behind him. On its surface DOG YEARS is a tale about faded fame, but at its core, it's a universal story about growing old."
Winter celebrated the film's acceptance into Tribeca by sharing an Instagram post where she said, "BURT WE DID IT!!!!! I’m beyond excited and proud to announce that my film Dog Years will be premiering at the 2017 @Tribeca Film Festival! I can’t wait for you to see it at #Tribeca2017."
