Ariel Winter leaves her car at the valet while heading out to dinner with her friends in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday night (November 13).
The 17-year-old Modern Family fired back at bullies on Instagram after she posted a flashback pic with her two nieces and was the target of mean comments.
“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’,” she wrote.
Ariel added, “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!!!!!!”
Ariel is also pictured at lunch with a few other friends earlier in the day.
