Can Ariel Winter live? The Modern Family actress and body love advocate is, like the rest of the northern hemisphere, desperately trying to beat the summer heat. But it appears that the haters are always out in force no matter the season, so Ms. Winter has some words for them.
In a Notes app screenshot posted to Twitter, the actress sounded off against what appears to be body-shaming comments from, most like, social media commenters and tabloid press:
"Pretty annoyed about the focus on the fact that I wear shorts, and the commentary that I'm 'squeezing' into them or the idea that it's not okay for me to wear shorts. It's SUMMER. Get over it. It's hot, I'm obviously going to wear minimal clothes. I'm not going to suffer in a turtleneck to please anyone. I'm not a whore because I wear shorts and tank tops.
I'm a normal girl. Also, I'm not 'squeezing' into anything. My shorts fit me and everything I'm doing is just fine. Please leave young women alone. We're just living our lives. It's really troubling that we even have to deal with this kind of stuff nowadays. Please stop criticizing everything everyone does!!!!!
Look, it's basically 1000°F across much of America, so word. Wear what you want! Stay cool and hydrated! And remember that what you wear, no matter the season, shouldn't and doesn't correlate to any kind of morality code!
