The Internet can have some super cool qualities, like connecting you with your first grade crush or the ability to give you a maybe-somewhat-legit answer to practically any question you can think of, but it can also harbor some very negative behavior—and that's something Ariel Winter knows all too well.
The Modern Family star is definitely not the only celeb who's had to face ruthless trolls on the Internet, but she may be one of the few who are constantly firing back at those who choose to share 140 of characters of rudeness her way. And for that reason, the 18-year-old actress has been put in constant defense mode.
Winter touched on the fact that everything she does is ridiculed by shamers on the Internet during her guest-hosting gig on The Talk this morning, when she discussed the backlash she received following her decision to get a new tattoo and a breast reduction.
"When I got my tattoos—I have 5 now—and every time I post about getting a tattoo, every single person on the face of the planet has something to say about it. 'You shouldn't be getting tattoos because you're ruining your body. How dare you destroy yourself even more? You were pretty and a nice person and now you're just trash,'" she shared.
"I mean, people say everything on the face of the planet to me about everything I do. And it just really, it can destroy a person and I also think it's disgusting what people spend their time on. You're sitting behind a computer, you don't have the guts to say it to my face, but you have the time and energy to shame and hurt somebody on the computer, and that just show how little respect you have for other people and how people spend their time."
