When she had curves, Ariel Winter was told she looked too provocative. Now that she’s lost weight — which she says is a result of changing her anti-depressant — critics are complaining that she’s too skinny. Now the Modern Family star is being body-shamed on social media over her — wait for it — feet.
The criticism came in response to a moody black-and-white portrait the 21-year-old shared, which shows her left bare foot.
Apparently, said foot — thanks to angles and lighting — is too big for some people’s liking.
“Bigfoot sighted,” snarked one commenter.
“D**n you can braid hair with those toes!” joked another follower.
“D**n u got big feet,” read a comment.
“Y’all talkin’ shhhh about her feet, better watch out before Flipper roundhouse kick-steps you into yesterday,” quipped another commenter.
Winter’s loyal fans fought back.
“Y’all will find any excuse to tear a woman down,” a supporter wrote. “Y’all got big insecurities and it shows through your comments.”
“Guys … her foot is just OK, and BTW nobody is perfect!!” another fan wrote.
“Gotta love all the people who pick @arielwinter apart,” added someone. “You people need to put your phones away, go run to the closest mirror and take a good look at yourself and then CRY!!”
While Winter is often quick to fire back at shaming comments, she seemed to take the jokes about her feet in, ahem, stride.
“I’m literally a 6.5 and people are commenting I have like men’s size 13 feet,” she responded, adding a crying-with-laughter emoji.
She’s in good company. Last year Kendall Jenner received similar backlash about her feet after posting a nude photo.
