Thanks to our pals at GossipCop, we’ve learned that the 18-year-old actress wasn’t fired at all from Modern Family.
After a rumor ran in Star magazine about Ariel being fired from the show, Steve Levitan, the co-creator and executive producer, cleared everything up.
“Nothing could be further from the truth. Ariel is a beloved cast member and a crucial part of our show. While she is starting to attend classes this year at UCLA, we are happy to report that she’ll continue to be a part of Modern Family’s coming season,” he shared.

The 18-year-old Modern Family actress just revealed a brand new tattoo on Instagram — a tiger on her upper back!
“Every time I post about getting a tattoo, every single person on the face of the planet has something to say about it,” she shared on The Talk earlier in the week, just before she debuted her new ink.
Ariel added, “‘You shouldn’t be getting tattoos, you’re ruining your body, how dare you destroy yourself even more, I thought you were pretty and a nice person and now you’re just trash.’”

The 18-year-old Modern Family actress, who appeared on The Talk earlier in the week, opened up about being on constant defense online.
“When I got my tattoos—I have 5 now—and every time I post about getting a tattoo, every single person on the face of the planet has something to say about it. ‘You shouldn’t be getting tattoos because you’re ruining your body. How dare you destroy yourself even more? You were pretty and a nice person and now you’re just trash,’” she shared on the show.
Ariel added, “I mean, people say everything on the face of the planet to me about everything I do. And it just really, it can destroy a person and I also think it’s disgusting what people spend their time on. You’re sitting behind a computer, you don’t have the guts to say it to my face, but you have the time and energy to shame and hurt somebody on the computer, and that just show how little respect you have for other people and how people spend their time.”
