Ariel Winter Slams Body Shamers And The Photo Goes Viral

November 17, 2015 | By Garrett Montgomery More

Ariel Winter slams body shamers after she is called all sorts of derogatory names for just sharing a picture of herself in a bikini standing next to her nieces. Miss Winter fought back by posting the famous photo of a woman’s leg with a ruler that determines if the length of her skirt makes her a whore or a prude.

Ariel Winter slams body shamers

Ariel Winter slams body shamers by posting an amazing picture that reminds people just because a woman wears a miniskirt or a bikini that does not imply that she is “looking for it.” Over the weekend, Winter made the mistake of sharing a bikini picture on her Instagram account.

In the throwback picture, the 17-year-old Modern Family star, who recently had a breast reduction, looked stunning in a blue and white bandeau-style bikini with her two nieces standing in a boat.

Miss Winter flashed a cute smile, while the little girls, who wore colorful bathing suits and life preservers, and showed peace signs. The proud aunt captioned the cute snapshot:

“#mynieces #lovethem #fbf.”

The post rapidly went viral amassing over 50k likes in less than 48 hours, and while some of the comments were positive, the majority of them were rude and just plain inappropriate for a 17-year-old girl, (or any girl for that matter). Many bitter commenters said she was asking for it and wondered “why are women surprised they get raped with they wear these things.” One person stated:

“Omg, she should just learn to post pics of her chest and that’s it.”

Another person, who was apparently not criticizing, wrote:

“huge breasts still. not criticizing.”

Moreover, there was this pearl:

“Omfg boobs like you’ve never seen them before sm.”

Body shamers be warned, Ariel Winter is a fighter, who has a habit of winning her battles, in court and on the Internet. The petite star uploaded the famous woman leg ruler picture – which features the back leg of a lady that is transformed into a ruler and the length of the hem of her skirt determines if she is “prudish” or “provocative.”

Miss Winter used the caption for a lengthy post that read:

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!!!!!!

Earlier this month, Ariana Grande slammed a body shamer, who said the singer was prettier than Ariel Winter thanks to her slender frame. The “One Less Problem” artist tweeted:

“Sigh …. tweets, comments, statement like this are not okay. About anyone!!! We live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are. Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy!”

What are your thoughts on Ariel Winter’s reaction?

      And yet the Kartrashian girls are lauded for their style but all they do is expose slutty bodies in hard core porn, naked selfies, over the top plastic surgery and degrading relationships. They should be ashamed.

        I think you may have missed the point Fred. It seems to me that this sort of thinking can be part of the problem. While I don’t watch or follow the Kardashians that closely, nor do I care to that’s my choice. I think that judging anyone for how they choose to express themselves, whether its a 17 year old hanging out with her nieces on a boat, or someone like the Kardashians in the media, etc…, neither deserve the judgement, body shaming, name calling, or being sexually objectified. I applaud these young women like Ariel and Ariana, with their successes they could choose to just ignore the comments, and yet they rise to the occasion, and show us an example of respecting themselves and others that is rarely seen today in anyone, much less someone so young.

        This is from the perspective of a married dad, who was raised by a single mother with two sisters, and also have helped to raise two girls. Thanks for reading 🙂

          ….. and yet I feel that if it was your daughter who chose to wear a plunging neckline and skirt where if she bent over, people would see her undergarments, you’d be the first one to tell your daughters to change. It’s not a question of celebrating one’s self, per se. It’s a question of acceptable morals. The main argument ( at least with the Kardashians ) is what they portray as role models. In Ariel Winter’s, it’s about letting her “freedoms” ( of exposing cleavage or buttocks) impinge on other’s who aren’t so progressive.

          What’s the old saying, I value your freedoms as long as they don’t lessen mine? Let them all wear two band-aids and a cork for all I care. For the people out there that wish to live in a way that doesn’t celebrate exposing of the body, I can see the point, though. Is it ok if I choose to wear ass-less chaps ad a codpiece with a mascot chicken head? Technically, yes. Out in public? no. My freedoms and expressions would create an issue with yours. hmmm?
