We’re all guilty of assuming the celebrity lifestyle is full of nothing but fame and fortune, but sometimes living your entire life in the public eye leads to an unfortunate amount of scrutiny. Modern Family actress Ariel Winter is no stranger to the wonders and woes that come with a Hollywood spotlight.
In fact, the 20-year-old is often the target of ruthless body-shaming trolls who have nothing better to do than criticize. One troll in particular recently claimed Winter’s weight-loss was the result of illegal drug use and the actress clapped back in the best way possible.
Most commonly known for her role as Alex on Modern Family, Ariel Winter has graced our television screens since she was 10 years old.
And we’ve watched her grow up into an absolutely stunning queen.
Unfortunately, living in the public eye has subjected Winter to several body-shaming trolls who have nothing better to do than criticize. But the actress usually brushes off her haters and embraces body positivity with fans.

Y’all I love you but PLEASE pay attention and post my REAL point from my @refinery29 interview!!! Not that I’m “defending living with my 29 year old boyfriend” or that I’m “firing back at Trump” because first of all I don’t need to defend anything I’m super happy and in love, and I’m not firing at anyone just sharing an opinion after being ASKED! The point was to take back the beach and help people understand that the beach should be a safe space to go as you please and feel good about yourself no matter what! Makeup on, makeup off, heels, sandals, covered up, exposed, do you and feel HAPPY about who you are and YOUR choices, not the ones society wants us to choose. It’s also HARD to be 100% confident- I’m still not- but I’m on a journey and I want other people to know they’re not alone. We all struggle but through our struggle we get stronger and closer to our goals. Body positivity is important- not that I live with my boyfriend. Press- please read the article and take it for what it is- not what will give you more readers! Let’s all be real and represent people how they want to be represented through what they actually say. Rant over. Love yourselves, love others, be yourselves, and be happy. Xo
Winter recently shared a couple of photos with her boyfriend Levi Meaden while the pair celebrated NYE.

And one commenter jokingly scolded her for drinking underage. To which Winter replied that she was only using her beverage to toast with.
It was all playful banter until one judgemental troll crept out from its dwellings to allege that Winter’s recent weight loss was the result of illegal drug use.
Winter didn’t hesitate to shut that down and satirically explained that her drop in weight was due to a change in antidepressants.
I mean, if you’re going to insult someone at least check your damn spelling.
But the commenter continued to badger Winter insisting that the actress must be doing drugs because apparently, that’s the only Hollywood lifestyle.
And finally, Winter decided to really let the troll have it.
“I think it definitely counts as hating on someone when you completely ignore the truth coming from the actual person, to just follow your own fantasy narrative.”
You tell ’em, girl!
Needless to say, no one will be messing with Ariel anytime soon.
