Modern Family's Ariel Winter Has Brilliant Response For People Body-Shaming Her

Modern Family star Ariel Winter recently posted a photo where she's wearing a bikini while smiling with her nieces on a family holiday.

The photo provoked some Instagram users to comment on her appearance and Ariel decided this type of behaviour is not okay.

The 17-year-old responded to the negative comments by drawing attention to the fact that women are constantly judged for what they wear.

Tv star Ariel made a strong argument for how this body-shaming needs to stop and said that what you're wearing does not imply that "you're asking for it".

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!!!!!!
