Body shamers! They're always getting shut down on Instagram by celebrities. Getting shut down by celebrities on Instagram is basically body shamers' favorite hobby. This weekend, body shamers got shut down by Modern Family actress Ariel Winter, so will they move on to a new activity to keep them busy now? Probably not.
Winter, 17 (aka a child), shared a photo of herself and her two young nieces on a boat. She's wearing a bathing suit, likely in order to appropriately fare in the maritime setting.
Apparently, commenters had a ton of inappropriate stuff to say about the picture. So Winter posted a response in which she addressed trolls who apparently wrote that her outfit demonstrated she was "asking for it" (ugh).
The caption reads:
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. 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!!!!!!
So there you have it. No one can shut down Ariel Winter body shamers like Ariel Winter. And Ariana Grande.
