New Delhi [India], Sept. 20 (ANI): It seems like Ariel Winter is giving Internet a piece of her mind.

The 19-year-old actress, who is no stranger to criticism about her looks, took to social media late Monday with a self-described 'rant' aimed at those who continue to pick her apart.

Taking to her Instgram profile, she wrote, "Something I wish people would realise. I am not TRYING to be featured on Snapchat, I am not trying to be pap'd everywhere I do, I am literally just LIVING and unfortunately, I can't do that without paparazzi following me around every day."

The post continued, "I'm not trying to show you my ass in shorts when I go to the grocery store. I'm trying to live my life. People wear shorts. People have wardrobe malfunctions. No one is perfect."

The 'Modern Family' star also called out those who accuse her of dressing "inappropriately" for certain events.

"I'm not a stylist! I don't know what to wear everyday so I look 'appropriate' or 'fashionable.' Also, screw having to always look appropriate or fashionable. For what? Society? Who gets to decide what is appropriate or fashionable????" wrote Winter.

Adding, "I wear what I like and no one should fault me for that. I don't want people to constantly see me in the news for going to dinner, or grocery shopping, or anything. I want to be in the news when I ASK for it by going to a publicized event, or EVEN BETTER when I have work out/coming out! So trust me, I don't want to see me in shorts putting water in my car every single d-n day as much as you don't."

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Winter told that her mom dressed her too maturely and sexualised her at a young age.

At that time she noted, "I'd also like to address the tweets I get saying, 'You accused your mother of sexualising you yet you're a w**re.' I was a CHILD being dressed like I was 24. I was 8-13 years old. I wasn't an adult as I am now."

She concluded her rant by saying that society needs to stop stigmatising women that choose to show off their bodies.

"We need to move on from this stigma that women who are comfortable with their bodies and their sexuality are just 'dumb sl**s,'" concluded Winter. (ANI)
