17 of Ariel Winter's Hottest Looks

Ariel Winter is "doing just fine" without her estranged mother.

The 19-year-old actress' mom, Chrystal Workman, publicly shamed Winter for her recent outfit choices in an article published Wednesday by InTouch magazine, where she said she felt "sad" that her daughter "feels the need to expose herself."

"What's sad is that you lie consistently," Winter fired back on Twitter Thursday. "Also, why is it that you only choose to talk to me through the press? I'm doing just fine. Toxic."

Winter was emancipated from her mother in 2015 to escape her physical and emotional abuse, allegations Workman has vehemently denied. That same year, the "Modern Family" star also underwent surgery to reduce her breasts from an F cup to a D cup.

Since then, the actress has embraced her body and refuses to let the public shame her for dressing the way she wants to.

As recently as Memorial Day, Winter was under fire for posting pictures of herself on the beach wearing a white bikini.

Happy #MemorialDay 🌊

"Nothing to do with Memorial Day. Thot gonna thot," wrote one follower. "Lol Memorial Day or happy 'lemme post another picture of myself and get attention' day," posted another.

Winter fired back, and told Refinery29 that "the beach should be a safe space."

"I went through a lot of hate online, so I tried to change myself for a really long time," she said. "But people just kept hating on me no matter what I did. I decided that instead of pleasing these other people, I’ll just spend that time pleasing myself. Those people are going to be rude to me regardless of what I do, so I should just try and be happy with what I am."

But it's not just her followers who are getting reprimanded for body shaming the curvy brunette. Winter recently shared a photo of her and her 29-year-old boyfriend Levi Meaden leaving a grocery store, in which she mocked the paparazzi and tabloid press in her caption.

"Y'all I NEVER post pap pics but I just got sent this and I'm posting it because Levi's SOOO pissed and his face is SOOOO good," she wrote. "It's fucking Ralphs! What headline are you getting with this????? Over and over! "Ariel in SLUTTY SHORTS & live in lover Levi" like ok can we just live and not be followed? Take pics on red carpets where we sign up for that not when we're just trying to grocery shop for fucks sake."
