Ariel Winter posted the above photo of herself in a bikini with her nieces on a boat on Friday and is now hitting back at body shamers over the picture. She received a lot of negative comments over the picture, but she took the haters to task in a subsequent posting on Instagram.
She shared the below photo of a woman showing leg with different labels depending on the length of her skirt:
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!!!!!!
Get it girl!
