Ariel Winter is not one to back down easy. She recently proved that she’s not to be bullied, by slamming an Instagram troll with a sassy reply.
The misled Instagram user commented on one of her recent pictures, writing, “Why does Ariel look so thirsty all the time.”
Ariel wasn’t having it!
She replied immediately, writing, “I’m SO thirsty!!! Haven’t had water in hours. God I can’t believe you can tell I’m dehydrated from this pic :/ :/.”
Cue laughter and endless admiration from everyone reading the drama. We’re glad Ariel decided to clap back to this Instagram troll; celebrities usually ignore comments like these and it encourages more of the trolls.
The Modern Family star made sure she had the last word in this case. She refused to be victimized here or anywhere else. The 20-year-old beauty recently joined the cast of Modern Family at the ‘For Your Consideration’ event in Hollywood. The troll commented on a group photo of the case that Sarah Hyland posted.
We’re not sure how he got the idea to call her ‘thirsty’. The comment also ticked off Ariel’s co-star, Sarah, who wrote in a little reply of her own.
She commented, “I can’t believe they saw that you were dehydrated as well! I was with you in person and couldn’t tell!!!! DO YOU NEED WATER?? I’ll come bring you some! I’ll be over in 2 minutes.”
Ariel has some strong backing and she couldn’t be more glad. Sarah even went the extra mile and directly addressed the instagram troll, writing “Please don’t leave negative comments on my page about my sister!!!”
There’s no doubt that Sarah will absolutely not have any hate directed towards herself or Ariel. If we were the troll, we’d be thinking and re-thinking our entire existence right now.
However, Ariel knows how to handle these tricky situations; the young actress has been exposed to negativity and hate before. Two years ago, she had to put up with random people on the Internet who told her she shouldn’t have worn a cleavage-baring dress to her graduation. She fired back and told them to do something better with their lives.
This isn’t the only thing she wanted to write, though. She wanted to be a lot sassier but then said she feels better writing something positive as a reply to negativity. Ariel also hopes that once trolls see her positivity, they might become more considerate and be respectful next time they comment.
“Maybe they’ll not write something hurtful next time,” she said.
Trolls aside, she was seen having a wonderful time at Coachella. However, she admitted that she feels like a ‘grandma’ because she didn’t see any of the headlines acts. She went to meet friends and then came back; she was there for very little time. We love her vibes, grandma or not, and hope she keeps on teaching trolls good lessons!
