17-Year-Old Ariel Winter Responds to Instagram Slut-Shamers

Modern Family‘s 17-year-old Ariel Winter has responded to those ignorant bullies commenting their unimportant and out-of-date values via the internet. Unfortunately, social media gives an inflated sense of self to the idiot trolls hiding behind their smartphone screens.

A photo posted by Ariel Winter (@arielwinter) on


Ariel Winter posted this photo of herself hanging out with her two young nieces on a boat. To this rather innocent photo, there has been a ton of shaming comments demanding her to “put some clothes on” and that she’s “asking for it”. I’m sorry, what exactly is she asking for? She’s standing there with two kids.

In response to these slut-shaming and misogynistic remarks about her body, Winter posted a photo of Rosea Lake’s art project, “Judgements”, which confronts society’s preconceptions and prejudices on the “sluttiness” of a woman based on her hemline length.

Ariel captioned her Instagram post,

“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!!!!!!”
