Ariel Winter is giving the Internet a piece of her mind.
No stranger to criticism about her looks, the Modern Family star took to social media late Monday with a self-described “rant” aimed at those who continue to pick her apart.
“Something I wish people would realize…I am not TRYING to be featured on Snapchat, I am not trying to be pap’d everywhere I do, I am literally just LIVING and unfortunately, I can’t do that without paparazzi following me around everyday,” she began. “I’m not trying to show you my ass in shorts when I go to the grocery store. I’m trying to live my life. People wear shorts. People have wardrobe malfunctions. No one is perfect.”
The star continued, calling out those who accuse her of dressing “inappropriately” for certain events.
“I’m not a stylist! I don’t know what to wear everyday so I look ‘appropriate’ or ‘fashionable.’ Also, screw having to always look appropriate or fashionable. For what? Society? Who gets to decide what is appropriate or fashionable????” Winter candidly wrote. “I wear what I like and no one should fault me for that. I don’t want people to constantly see me in the news for going to dinner, or grocery shopping, or anything. I want to be in the news when I ASK for it by going to a publicized event, or EVEN BETTER when I have work out/coming out! So trust me, I don’t want to see me in shorts putting water in my car every single d—n day as much as you don’t.”
In addition to commenting on the relentless attention she receives while completing everyday tasks, the 19-year-old addressed some naysayers’ comments in regard to a recent interview she gave to The Hollywood Reporter regarding how she was dressed as a kid.
