The Modern Family star, unfortunately, received yet another swarm of unfair comments this week after she posted a photo of herself from a friend's birthday party. "Happy 21st🎂 Love you always ❤️ couldn’t ask for a better day 1 best friend," Winter captioned a photo of herself and friend Joe Kaprielian. They're posing against a fun backdrop with Winter wearing a chic checkered jumpsuit, her hair long and slick. There's literally nothing to see here, but strangers in the comments section took it upon themselves to criticize Winter's appearance.
“Omg you lost your butt,” one fan wrote. A second replied, “Too skinny now.”
A few people seemed to imply Winter underwent plastic surgery to alter her appearance. “I’m sorry you felt the need to so dramatically change your appearance," one person wrote. "I liked you just as you were. I hope you are happy in your new body though."
Someone else commented, “Nothing wrong with being honest and telling her we liked her better before ‘the change’ she was so beautiful before she started chopping up her body and if me saying so helps one girl out here to feel beautiful who’s thinking of PS [plastic surgery] it's worth it.”
That last message is what prompted Winter to jump in with a response. “I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting someone (me) down which isn’t what I think you were trying to do?” Winter wrote. “I also didn’t get plastic surgery. That is also not supportive of women if you’re just assuming about the way they look.”

For the record: People's bodies aren't up for debate. Ever. Under any circumstances. It's great Ariel Winter took the power back, but it's frustrating these comments existed in the first place.
