Ariel Winter urges Instagram critics to ‘get over’ her clothing

Ariel Winter still doesn’t care what critics think about her photos.

The “Modern Family” star had to defend her outfit choices for the fourth time in four months Friday after internet body shamers bombarded one of her Instagram photos with nasty comments.

The photo in question featured Winter posing with pals in a black lacy bra and short black shortsa look she insists fits her just fine, especially considering the summer heat.

“Pretty annoyed about the focus on the fact that I wear shorts, and the commentary that I’m ‘squeezing’ into them or the idea that it’s not okay for me to wear shorts,” she wrote on Twitter. “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.”

The comments Winter was referring to included several followers who took issue with the fact that Winter was wearing less clothing than many of her friends in the photo.

“THE ONLY ONE AGAIN WITH BARELY ANY CLOTHES,” one user wrote.

“If it is too hot to cover up why does everyone else look fine without wearing lingerie?” another added.

Winter’s Twitter “rant” continued with the 19-year-old actress defending herself against being called a whore, and maintaining that she’s just “a normal girl.”

“Please leave young women alone. We’re just living our lives,” she wrote. “It’s really troubling that we even have to deal with this kind of stuff nowadays. Please stop criticizing everything everyone does!!!”

This isn’t the first time Winter has come to her own defense in the face of criticism regarding her apparel.

In June, she called out her own mother, who gave an interview saying she thought her daughter should “dress properly” and stop “expos(ing) herself when it’s not necessary,” and in May, she faced backlash after she appeared at a “Modern Family” screening in a much glitzier outfit than her co-stars.

“Why TF does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel?” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “Why do I have to be like everyone else? Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?”

She also gave an interview to Yahoo Style in April explaining why she’s fine with posting skimpy photos on Instagram.

“When we try to be free and post what we want, it’s like, look at that slut on social media,” she said. “That’s not what it is. We’re proud of our bodies. If I take a picture and I think it looks goodif it’s a little revealing, whatever.”
