Update: Everyone Can Stop Trolling Ariel Winter & Her Body Now

Update: Last night, Ariel Winter defended herself, her body, and her clothing on Twitter. In her tweet she refers specifically to the body-con dress, pictured below, that she wore to her high school graduation party.

She wrote
, "Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress. And if you hate it, don't buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody."

She followed up by sharing a quote from a friend and writing "Know your value. Remember who you are. Love yourself. You're perfect #stoptheshaming."

Amen to that.

Ariel Winter recently experienced one of the greatest accomplishments in a young person's life — graduating high school.

The 18-year-old actress shared pictures from the event on Instagram. She had gold-and-white balloons, Pinterest-worthy table arrangements, and an elaborate cake. But all eyes weren't focused on the festivities. Instead, those eyes were glued to her outfit, according to the internet's reaction to her picture.

It is far from the first time. As a writer at Mic points out, Winter constantly has to deal with gross, perverted, and rude comments on many of her photos. No post is spared by the harsh trolls on the internet. It seems that no matter how many times Winter claps back and defends herself (and women in general) nasty commenters still find their way back to her feed.

Yahoo Style offered an analysis on why Winter is dressing "provocatively." The piece featured a quote from a psychologist saying her style of dress could be "self-esteem issues causing her to seek attention to fill the emotional holes." Whoa. All that over a girl showing off her figure in a dress?

She's wearing that outfit because she is filming a movie. But the comments are all about how she is dressed.

Even if she wasn't on set, have none of her followers ever been to Coachella?

Or Las Vegas?

Or the beach?

Only a little crazy, baby 💋

To shed light on just how much her body is talked about, she recently uploaded this absurdly photoshopped image of herself, poking fun at the exaggerated size of her breasts.

Winter is probably used to the criticism, but she shouldn't have to be. If commenters are so obsessed with her role on Modern Family, then they obviously weren't paying attention to the whole point of the damn show, which is to love, accept, and be kind to those around you. That's the modern way to live life.

Trolling on the internet? That's definitely not one of them. It's time to give it a rest.
