Actress Ariel Winter fired back at the body shamers after receiving a lot of inappropriate comments over her vacation photo with her nieces.
In response to the degrading comments, the 17-year-old Ariel Winter posted an image of woman’s legs, marked with words like “provocative” and “slut” to depict an association between hemlines and perception, reported People magazine.
“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,” Winter wrote.
“You are not asking for anything because of what you are wearing u2013 you are expressing yourself and don’t you ever think you deserve the negativity as the consequence to what you are wearing u2013 YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL,” she wrote. “Celebrate you and don’t let anyone’s comments allow you to think less of yourself. Us girls have to stick together!,” she added.
The photo in question had the teenager wearing a bikini and posing on a boat with her nieces.
