The crazy comments, including body shaming, that are made on the internet are nothing new. I’m glad celebs are starting to hit back at them, though! ‘Modern Family’ star Ariel Winter is yet again having to respond to people who claimed she was “asking for it” by posing in a bikini for a picture.
Here’s the picture that got some people riled up:
Some people responded in the comments saying she looked “fat” while others said she was “asking for it” by posting a picture like that. Craziness! Honestly, sometimes looking at the comments online makes me fear for humanity.
Ariel responded to the comments in another post.
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!!!!!!

What a great response. You go, girl! I’m glad to see women standing up to this kind of harassment.
