Ariel Winter and her family are close friends of my family. We are so very proud of the way she responded to body shamers over her posting a photo on vacation with her nieces. Making assumptions by a photo is ridiculous. I personally have to say, I have no idea how anyone can have any problem with the bathing suit she is wearing. But, even if you do, keep it to yourself!
Ariel Winter didn’t hold back after she received a barrage of negative comments on a photo with her nieces.
Winter shared an image of the back of a woman’s legs, which are marked like a ruler with words like “provocative” and “slut” to allude to an association between hemlines and perception, on Saturday in response.
“Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this?” Winter, 17, wrote. “The height of a girl’s skirt or whatever she is wearing for that matter, does not imply what she is asking for.”
The photo in question, posted Friday, showed a bikini-clad winter posting with her two young nieces on a boat. Winter’s bikini was bandeau style, and the little girls were both wearing hats and life vests.
“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 continued.
