Ariel Winter Slams Body Shamers Who Say She “Squeezed” Into Her Shorts
The haters are at it again.
The actress knows this feeling all too well, sadly.
On July 13, the Modern Family cast member posted a photo of herself wearing booty shorts and a lacy top.
Of course, the internet was quick to have some very rude things to say about her look.
The actress was not about to let people come for her again without speaking up.
She posted a tweet on July 14 to say: “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.
“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.”
“I’m not a whore because I wear shorts and tank tops. I’m a normal girl," she continued.
"Also, I’m not ‘squeezing’ into anything. My shorts fit me and everything I’m doing is just fine.”
“Please leave young women alone. We’re just living our lives," she wrote.
"It’s really troubling that we even have to deal with this kind of stuff nowadays. Please stop criticizing everything everyone does!!!!! Rant over!”
This is not the first time the 19-year-old has had people come at her for what she's wearing.
After she wore a revealing bikini in May, she had a similar result.
“I went through a lot of hate online, so I tried to change myself for a really long time," she told Refinery29.
"But people just kept hating on me no matter what I did. I decided that instead of pleasing these other people, I’ll just spend that time pleasing myself. Those people are going to be rude to me regardless of what I do, so I should just try and be happy with what I am.”
"We’re being objectified and made to feel bad about ourselves," she said.
"I think it’s really important for women to stick together and do the opposite of that; to let their bodies be seen and be heard, and to empower each other; to remind each other that what they look like is not the only thing that’s important when it comes to who they are.”
Leave Ariel alone!
