The 19-year-old actress took to Instagram asking some legitimate questions to all those questioning her choice of outfit.
"Why TF does anyone care that I didn't dress casual like everyone else for the panel?" Winter wrote on Instagram. "Why do I have to be like everyone else."
Winter wore a glamorous, plunging minidress at the event, while her cast mates all decided on something more casual.
"Why can't people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?" Winter, who plays Alex Dunphy on the ABC sitcom, continued. "WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT PEOPLE! As long as you feel good about yourself that's what matters. I know I did. Don't ever let anyone stifle who you are and how you express yourself. Rant over :)"
This isn't the first time the actress has called out critics and it will not be the last.
Scroll down to see Ariel's glamorous outfit, plus her calling out other critics:
Ariel Winter showcased a stunning gold dress at a Modern Family screening on Wednesday night and took the opportunity to dish on what it's like to be a child star actress.
The photos taken during the TV Academy event show the 19-year-old donning a patterned mini dress that put her hourglass figure on full display.
The revealing getup featured a cut-out window over Ariel's chest that highlighted her ample cleavage and see-through sections over her thighs and hips.
Sofia Vergara shared a snap of the on-screen family backstage showing all the actors smiling and hugging. She captioned the pic: "Mi Familia Moderna #academypanel."

Winter shut down people who criticized her for showing what was, in their eyes, too much skin at her high school graduation party.
She donned a form-fitting minidress (which you can see in the post above) with an underboob-baring cutout for the fete, took to social media to fire off a sassy comeback.
"Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress. And if you hate it, don't buy it. But please get a hobby," she wrote on Twitter Wednesday, June 22. "XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody."

She further went on to tell young girls to love who they are and own who they are. She posted a photo of herself in jeans, cowboy boots and a midriff top. She captioned the pic: "Embrace all that you are. Don't let those outside voices become your inner voice #thisismybody #mychoice #loveyourcurves."
She's shared a lot of her own story and has revealed that body shamers have caused the young actress to step up and stop the attackers.
"I was called every name in the book: fat, a slut, trashy, ugly," she told Stylish. But she's not tolerating that talk anymore. She's fighting back — and educating young girls in the process.
"Right after I started developing, I automatically started getting all this hate. I developed these boobs and a butt, and everything changed," she said. "And as I got older, it only seemed to get worse."
The negativity pushed her into helping girls better understand that their bodies are nothing to be ashamed of. She partnered with Dove on its 12-year-old confidence campaign, the Self Esteem Project, which aims to inspire girls through research, education and understanding of their bodies.
