The 18-year-old actress shared pictures from the event on Instagram. She had gold-and-white balloons, Pinterest-worthy table arrangements, and an elaborate cake. But all eyes weren't focused on the festivities. Instead, those eyes were glued to her outfit, according to the internet's reaction to her picture.
It is far from the first time. As a writer at Mic points out, Winter constantly has to deal with gross, perverted, and rude comments on many of her photos. No post is spared by the harsh trolls on the internet. It seems that no matter how many times Winter claps back and defends herself (and women in general) nasty commenters still find their way back to her feed.
Yahoo Style offered an analysis on why Winter is dressing "provocatively." The piece featured a quote from a psychologist saying her style of dress could be "self-esteem issues causing her to seek attention to fill the emotional holes." Whoa. All that over a girl showing off her figure in a dress?
Couldn't be more grateful to @shanelle_gray & @davidbarrygray for throwing me the most amazing graduation party ever last night...the amount of love and support they've shown me for the past four years has been life changing. My sister is my absolute best friend and my everything...❤️ Thank you so much. I couldn't be luckier or more grateful. I was in awe last night and I still am that you guys love me that much to do all of that for me...I never would be where I am today without you two...you guys saved me and taught me to be the person I am today. Dad...I love you!!! Thank you for always being there to support and love me as well and always put a smile on my face no matter what :). I'm so grateful for the bond we now share. Alenah the song you put together with Shanelle and recorded for me was one of the most special gifts I've ever received. I'm still tearing up thinking about it. Thank you for that and for your beautiful, special performance. Also a big thank you so much to Geraldine for putting it all together and to @contemporarycatering @robpauerful for the most amazing food! A special thank you as well to Sharon who is probably the biggest reason I was able to get through high school and accepted into college...you pushed me to always do my best and encouraged me...not to mention you were always there for my 1am freak outs about late projects :) Anddddd thank you SO MUCH to all of my amazing family members and friends that flew in to celebrate with us- you guys are the absolute best. Thank you also to the ones who didn't have to fly in...so much love was felt all around last night. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! Class of 2016...❤️ #uclabound
She's wearing that outfit because she is filming a movie. But the comments are all about how she is dressed.
Even if she wasn't on set, have none of her followers ever been to Coachella?
Or Las Vegas?
Or the beach?
To shed light on just how much her body is talked about, she recently uploaded this absurdly photoshopped image of herself, poking fun at the exaggerated size of her breasts.
Winter is probably used to the criticism, but she shouldn't have to be. If commenters are so obsessed with her role on Modern Family, then they obviously weren't paying attention to the whole point of the damn show, which is to love, accept, and be kind to those around you. That's the modern way to live life.
Trolling on the internet? That's definitely not one of them. It's time to give it a rest.
