Ariel Winter bikini photo, workout spandex set Internet abuzz

Ariel Winter bikini photo 1

An Ariel Winter bikini photo is not an especially new thing–but, judging by the flurry of comments Winter received after sharing a recent swimsuit shot, the bizarre controversy that follows each image is unlikely to abate anytime soon. Winter received criticism and praise in equal measure after recently sharing a pair of short videos on Instagram: the first, which you’ll find below, is of Ariel Winter in a bikini, asking her fans whether it’s spring break-worthy:

For #springbreak or nah?

At first glance, some of the comments might not seem especially demeaning or disrespectful. “How about nothing at all,” suggested user jameskharrison. “I wanna see you nude,” declared daletraderjack. “Imagine if she didn’t get the reduction??,” commented g._gonzalez. And many of the comments made reference to Winter’s recent breast reduction surgery, with the implication that she would “look even better” if she hadn’t had the procedure done.

It was a similar reaction in the comments section of the second post. That video, shared a few days earlier, features Ariel Winter at the gym, working out in spandex shorts:

“Trying to get the ?? to match the ??,” declared arturmadrosian. “Cant stop reloading the video,” offered thedudewholovescars. Said johnnypina88, “JUST WISHING THAT YOU WERE JUST SITTING ON MY 8 ” ROCK HARD C*CK.” Shortly thereafter, lenozi wrote, “Good luck among these black guys … ?.”

Winter has not offered an official response to any of the individual comments to her social media updates, though it is worth poining out that she shared the following on Twitter the day after the gym video:

In addition, it’s worth a mention that Winter has received widespread acclaim for battling social media haters and slut shamers in the past. She shared an uplifting message on Instagram last autumn after another Ariel Winter bikini photo, this time with her younger nieces, brought criticism from many who felt she should have covered up in front of the girls.

And, earlier this year, Winter pointed out a double standard in the reception Kim Kardashian received from her now-infamous nude selfie. “No one was body shaming Justin Bieber when he posted his nude guitar photo,” Winter wrote on Twitter, “so why Kim Kardashian? I think everyone, men and women, should have the right to choose what they do with their bodies–and not be criticized.”

    She’s awesome.
    Off-topic, but I’ll never understand people who are able to work out with their hair down. ?? When I get sweaty, the first thing I do is tie up my hair otherwise I can’t focus. I just don’t understand how your hair in your face isn’t annoying you! lol

    May I say – that this girl JUST turned 18 like a few weeks ago. I started following her on insta about 6 months ago cause I just adore her character on Modern Family. Suddenly, I started to see prom pictures of this girl, and was like WHOA – how old is she??!!! Turns out she was 17, and the revealing pictures of her date back quite far.
    Confidence, body shaming, whatever. This is a child. A child that has posted some seriously revealing pictures on social media, and thoroughly makes you question the parenting skills, or lack there of going on here. A child that feels it necessary to post pictures like this of herself, to a plethora of fans who subscribe to her page.
    Things like this could really hurt her career, which I frankly think has been off to a great start! She seems like a talented young girl, but social media can really come back to haunt you. When I saw the picture on the chair (yesterday was it?), all I could think was “uh-oh”.

    • Cherbs888

      OH, I just read the other story about her poor upbringing and parenting stuff. So there’s that….

  • TA

    I personally don’t like the way she dresses or the photos she posts online, so I don’t follow her on social media. I feel as if she sets a bad example for women, young girls particularly. I’ve always felt that it’s is more sexy to leave something to the imagination.
    But I will agree with her on one thing- her body, her choice.

  • Myndee

    I was listening to old Kidd Kraddick this morning, and Kellie said something about girls dressing very revealing as more of an insecurity thing while trying to find their style and newfound sexuallity rather than a confidence, maybe that’s what she’s going through. And I just want to say I still can’t believe thats Princess Sofia….man….

    • Courtney

      I was just thinking the same thing. These pictures seem like an insecure girl looking for compliments and attention but because she’s so young (and being emancipated from her mother/raised by her older sister because she didn’t like the control or rules her mom forced) she’s going about this the wrong way. Yes you should feel comfortable with your body but sharing provocative or sexual pics to gain confidence or approval tends to lessen your respect. Those sexual comments were disgusting to read but that’s how people will look at you when you promote yourself like that. She seems like a very sweet girl and I hope she realizes soon that she’s better than this and being visually sexy doesn’t bring respect or confidence.

  • Booty Fingers

    For someone who doesn’t want to be defined by their boobs, she sure has them on full display. Also, her ass is not impressive, all girls asses look like that in the squat position

    • Whatisaywhataso

      My point exactly!! ?

  • ameliaBedelia76

    this girl already with “my body is great” crap. she poses and posts pics of herself half nude on social media & wonders why ppl say negative’s the internet.
