Sarah Hyland came out in support of her friend, Ariel Winter, on social media recently when the actress took to Instagram to defend the Modern Family star’s photo. The 27-year-old actress asked for all of the “pervs” out there to leave Ariel alone.
Hyland, who co-stars along with Winter on Modern Family, told: “all the pervs commenting on the post” to get off the internet and get back to their blowup dolls. This is just one of many times that Winter has fought back against social media commenters; it’s almost become a habitual pattern.
The photograph of Ariel – which you can see above – shows the 20-year-old posing by a gas station and filling up her car. People in the comment section were guessing as to whether or not she was wearing a bra.
Ariel said the only reason why she was posting it is that it was the only one that actually looked like her. The photograph was actually taken by paparazzi, rather than Ariel herself. Hyland did the same thing afterward when she posted a photo of herself looking casual in New York.
In the caption of the photo, Hyland wrote that she was channeling her younger co-star, and she finished off the post with the hashtags, “New Yorker at heart,” and “angry walking.”
As you may know, Winter knows all about creeps online, as they frequently comment about the way she “squeezes” into shorts.
However, some commenters are less forgiving of Ariel and claim that she eggs on the attention and then complains about it as a way of humble bragging and exercising a sense of self-importance.
One person wrote, “she must like the attention considering she posts the most provocative pictures one could imagine.” In response to the Instagram “pervs” – as Sarah called them – Ariel asked for her fans and followers to leave “young women alone,” as they’re just “living (their) lives.”
