Ariel Winter is packing her bikini for a Spring Break getaway and on Thursday, she took to Instagram to ask for opinions on whether or not to take a cute chevron print string bikini that she modeled.
Of course, most people know how dangerous it can be to look to the collective internet for advice when you're baring it all.
However, Ariel Winter wasn't scared. In Hollywood, one must have a thick skin.
After all, Ariel Winter is used to being criticized.
After having breast reduction surgery and subsequently showing her scars in this year's Oscars dress, Ariel Winter took a hit or two from those who must always give an opinion.
Ariel Winter also caught some crap for a picture she posted of herself in a swimsuit with her nieces. Some comments implied that she was "asking for it" and dressed like a slut.
But, Ariel Winter hit back.
Ariel Winter posted a picture to her Instagram of a woman's leg with different levels of "asking for it" drawn on the back in parody.
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!!!!!!
