This is 17-year-old actress Ariel Winter. She plays Alex Dunphy on the hit show Modern Family.
Sometimes Ariel likes to post to Instagram, since you know, she's a teenage girl.
Recently Ariel posted this adorable photo of herself with two of her nieces. Nothing to see here, just a cute family having a blast.
But because the internet proves time and time again why we can't have nice things, some people decided to post some negative comments, which Ariel started to respond to.
Ariel, however, then took it a step further and fought back with this powerful image and caption:
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!!!!!!
"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 go, girl. 👏👏👏
