When she had curves, Ariel Winter was told she looked too provocative. Now that she’s lost weight — which she says is a result of changing her anti-depressant — critics are complaining that she’s too skinny. Now the Modern Family star is being body-shamed on social media over her — wait for it — feet.
The criticism came in response to a moody black-and-white portrait the 21-year-old shared, which shows her left bare foot.
Apparently, said foot — thanks to angles and lighting — is too big for some people’s liking.
“Bigfoot sighted,” snarked one commenter.
“D**n you can braid hair with those toes!” joked another follower.
“D**n u got big feet,” read a comment.
“Y’all talkin’ shhhh about her feet, better watch out before Flipper roundhouse kick-steps you into yesterday,” quipped another commenter.
Winter’s loyal fans fought back.
“Y’all will find any excuse to tear a woman down,” a supporter wrote. “Y’all got big insecurities and it shows through your comments.”
“Guys … her foot is just OK, and BTW nobody is perfect!!” another fan wrote.
“Gotta love all the people who pick @arielwinter apart,” added someone. “You people need to put your phones away, go run to the closest mirror and take a good look at yourself and then CRY!!”
While Winter is often quick to fire back at shaming comments, she seemed to take the jokes about her feet in, ahem, stride.
“I’m literally a 6.5 and people are commenting I have like men’s size 13 feet,” she responded, adding a crying-with-laughter emoji.
She’s in good company. Last year Kendall Jenner received similar backlash about her feet after posting a nude photo.
Even though Ariel Winter turned 21 at the end of January, she postponed her official birthday celebrations until this past weekend. Actress recently rang in her momentous 21st birthday in style at Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vegas, NV. The “Modern Family “star celebrated with 70 of her closest friends, family and boyfriend Levi Meaden.
The star was all smiles when Drai’s massive wrap-around screens lit up the club acknowledging her special day. Winter received a customized pink and white three-tiered cake, a sweet touch to the fantastic revelry. Winter’s birthday celebration happened to be the same night iconic Atlanta MC Gucci Mane, highly regarded as one of the most gifted rappers of his generation, embarked on a brand-new residency with Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vegas.
And in style she certainly was. Wearing a stunning, crisp white suit, waist-length straight extensions courtesy of celeb hairstylist Jonathan Colombini, and an impressive, over-the-top starry ear cuff, Winter was looking icy and 100% chic.
Giving new meaning to the term “birthday suit,” the now-21 year old looked absolutely stunning in the all-white look, which she paired with subtle nude glam by makeup artist Ash K Holm.
Winter‘s black nails added a dark touch to the otherwise crisp white outfit. Overall, we have to say that this might just be the actress’s chicest look of all time. If this is how she’s kicking off the year, we can’t wait to see what 21 has in store for Winter.
