Modern Family is probably one of the funniest family shows on TV since Friends. At least we’d like to think so. The show revolves around 3 different types of families that are all connected. It literally is a modern day family.
All of us can relate to the show, whether to the situations that are presented or to a specific character. The show gives us a variety of situations that comes along with a nuclear family, same-sex family and a step-family.
This show receives such positivity, but in recent news there’s been some negative attention on Ariel Winter, who plays Alex Dunphy. According to Maxim, Ariel has been getting some hate over her outfit during a Modern Family publicity event.
The actress wore a revealing gold mini dress that did not match the vibe that the rest of the cast was going for.
People took to twitter calling Ariel “inappropriate” or claiming that she’s trying way too hard to look older than she is.
This isn’t Ariel’s first time being attacked by the public. She is constantly being scrutinized about her body and her clothes.
For her high-school graduation, people had a lot to say when she wore a revealing tight pink dress that showed off her figure.
But this doesn’t stop Ariel from fighting back and standing up for what she believes in. Especially when it comes to body-shaming.
The 19-year-old still continues to post provocative Instagram photos despite what any of the haters have to say…and she won’t stop.
In an interview with Yahoo! Style, Ariel expressed how unfair she finds it that when guys post inappropriate photos, no one seems to notice or have anything negative to say about it.
She brought up a point that as soon as a girl posts a provocative photo or an outfit that doesn’t fit her body type, the whole world seems have an issue with it and criticizes them.
It took a while for Ariel to gain the confidence she has today. Before her breast reduction surgery, Ariel worried about every word people had to say.
Now, she is one of the most vocal people in Hollywood on body-shaming and sexism. She doesn’t believe in hiding what you were given.
Ariel’s character on Modern Family is her complete opposite. Alex Dunphy is the more conservative, nerdy sister who is known to be innocent.
Maybe people are so used to her character on the show, they get shocked when they see her on social media or out on the red carpet.
Regardless what the reason may be, her dress this past week really just encouraged her to continue defending what she believes in.
She did some serious fighting back against her haters on her personal Instagram account. Ariel wrote: “ Why does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel?”
Ariel continued by writing: “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 finished off her post by saying: “Don’t let anyone stifle who you are and how you express yourself.” Here’s to Ariel for being well beyond her years and doing very important work by fighting body-shamers.
