Ariel Winter has once again come under fire for a provocative outfit choice, leaving fans angered at the “disgusting” and “judgmental” comments she’s received since choosing to wear a mini-dress to church.
The 20-year-old Modern Family star celebrated Greek Orthodox Easter last
“I got them to the Greek (church),” she joked on Instagram, alongside separate photos with Meaden and dad Glenn Workmann.

It was a considerably more toned-down look than fans are used to seeing from the glamorous star, but that didn’t stop people trolling her for apparently baring too “much skin” in a dress they deemed “inappropriate” for such an occasion.
“Look at what is she wearing in the church. So disrespectful !!!” wrote one commenter.
“Ew, so inappropriate to show this much skin, show some respect in a holy place,” said another.
Other commenters asked the actress why she feels the “need to be showing as much” of her body, and questioned if she was “at a club or a church”.
Many fans took umbrage at the negative comments, schooling “judgemental” haters on a woman’s right to curate her own appearance.
“She really isn’t showing off nearly as much as she normally shows off and plus it’s her body lay tf off,” noted an angry Instagrammer.
“Is your name Ariel Winter? No? Then shut up and let her do her thing,” said another.
“People are so quick to judge even though no one is perfect. It’s really disgusting how judgmental people can be,” added another fan.
Winter is no stranger to criticism over her outfit choices. Last year, she defended her decision to wear a glamorous gold red carpet frock to an otherwise casual Modern Family screening.
“Why TF does anyone care that I didn’t dress casual like everyone else for the panel?” she Tweeted in May 2017.
“Why do I have to be like everyone else?” she continued. “Why can’t people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want?”
Winter finished the note by insisting that she was comfortable in the dress, encouraging fans to do their own thing and succumb to the pressures of criticism.
“As long as you feel good about yourself that’s what matters. I know I did,” she said. “Don’t ever let anyone stifle who you are and how your express yourself.”
