In case you didn鈥檛 get the memo the first time around that Ariel Winter, who gracefully shut down haters when they criticized her for her wardrobe choice at a Modern Family panel in May, is NOT here for your judgement, the sitcom star is here to say it again, louder and clearer than ever before.

Winter took to Twitter to make it known that she鈥檚 sick of the hateful comments that frequently appear on her social media pages regarding her outfit choices, and to let everyone know that she wouldn鈥檛 be changing for them anytime soon.

The post came several days after the young star posted a shot of herself with pals while donning a lace cropped bralette and black shortie shorts. It wasn鈥檛 long before the hate started rolling in, with people telling her she looked like a 鈥渉ooker,鈥 and making mean comments about her weight in comparison to other young ladies in the photo.

Several days earlier, it was a similar story with a snap she uploaded of herself in some Daisy Dukes and cowboy boots with a pink tie-front cropped blouse. 鈥淛ust pose for Hustler already,鈥 one person wrote, with another claiming she was 鈥渄esperately seeking attention.鈥

Addressing those who would say she鈥檚 鈥渟queezing into鈥 her shorts, or that her clothing choices make her unchaste, Winter had some choice words for her online bullies. 鈥淚t鈥檚 SUMMER. Get over it,鈥 she wrote. 鈥淚t鈥檚 hot, I鈥檓 obviously going to wear minimal clothes. I鈥檓 not going to suffer in a turtleneck to please anyone.鈥 Girl, PREACH.

More than simply clapping back, however, Winter pointed out how troubling it was that she even had to respond to such an issue as a 19-year-old woman, and TBH, she has a very good point. 鈥淎lso, I鈥檓 not 鈥渟queezing into鈥 anything,鈥 she quipped. 鈥淢y shorts fit me and everything I鈥檓 doing is just fine. Please leave young women alone. We鈥檙e just living our lives. It鈥檚 really troubling that we even have to deal with this stuff nowadays.鈥

The plea is especially troubling coming from Winter, who has been plenty open about her struggles with body image in the past, prior to undergoing breast reduction surgery. 鈥淏efore then, I didn鈥檛 like myself, and everyone was so focused on my cleavage, so when I got the breast reduction, it helped me feel so much better about my body,鈥 she told Glamour back in 2015.

While she says things have 鈥済otten a little better鈥 in the self-love department since then, the types of comments she鈥檚 referencing certainly can鈥檛 help matters.

Still, we鈥檙e proud to see her standing up for herself, and hope that maybe, just maybe, it will make someone think twice about how they choose their words. Stay strong, BB!
