Ariel Winter Calls Out Online Trolls Who Tell Her Not to Wear Shorts

It’s summertime, and for most of us, we are dressing however makes us feel most comfortable in the scorching humidity — Ariel Winter included.

Yesterday, the 19-year-old former Modern Family star took to Instagram to address her body-shamers who are telling her her shorts are too small.

“Pretty annoyed about the focus on the fact that I wear shorts,” she writes, “and the commentary that I’m ‘squeezing’ into them or the idea that it’s not okay for me to wear shorts. It’s SUMMER. Get over it. It’s hot, I’m obviously going to wear minimal clothes. I’m not going to suffer in a turtleneck to please anyone.”

She went on to talk about the harmful implications of shaming women for their clothing.

“I’m not a whore because I wear shorts and a tank top,” she continues, “I’m a normal girl. Also, I’m not ‘squeezing’ into anything. My shorts fit me and everything I’m doing is just fine. Please leave young women alone. We’re just living our lives. It’s really troubling that we even have to deal with this kind of stuff nowadays. Please stop criticizing everything everyone does!”
