By now, the internet has come to learn that "Modern Family" actress Ariel Winter wears what she wants, comments section be damned.

Body positivity and fierce clap backs have become synonymous with her name. 

Most fans absolutely love how Winter embraces her body — but some TV viewers can't handle the fact that Winter is so different from her onscreen character, Alex Dunphy, especially when it comes to wardrobe. 


Winter recently shared an Instagram selfie while she was on the "Modern Family" set.

"First day back filming Modern Family season 9," Winter captioned the post, wearing a pair of jeans and a cropped tank.

Trolls immediately attacked her for showing underboob on set.

Fans blasted Winter for jeopardizing her character's wholesome image.

On the show, Winter plays the quiet, smart, admittedly nerdy middle child.

Her character prefers to dress modestly — but just because Alex keeps covered up, doesn't mean Winter can't wear what she wants off-duty. 

This isn't the first time haters have mocked Winter for wearing so-called inappropriate outfits to work.

In May, Winter chose to wear a gold mini-dress to a "Modern Family" panel. She felt confident in her outfit, but trolls bashed the daring dress.

"That girl oozes insecurity," body-shamers wrote on Twitter. "Does Ariel Winter feel like she has to dress provocative because she's depicted as a nerd on 'Modern Family?'"

Winter shouldn't have to base her life — or her outfit choices — around her fictional TV character.

Winter's real-life confidence should be celebrated, not condemned.
