The high road has never been so well taken

It’s really sad that the term ‘body shaming’ has become just another couple of words in our vocab that we’re really used to hearing now.

8 year old Modern Family actress, Ariel Winter, has frequently been on the receiving end of this sort of online abuse which is ridiculous because erm, have you seen her? She’s gorgeous. And it’s so, SO outrageous because no one deserves to be made to feel crappy about the way they look.

In an Instagram post captioned ‘Nothing but love <3’, Ariel called for everyone to ‘stop the hate’, and addressed the people who have been unnecessarily mean to her online in the best possible way.

She wrote: ‘Every time someone bullies me online, it gives me a chance to re-emphasize to my fans, and even myself, how important self-acceptance is.

Ariel adds: ‘Those who say such harsh things on my Instagram, thank you for this opportunity- but the question I ask myself each time I read the mean comments is if this is how you talk to a stranger online, I can only imagine how cruelly you speak to yourself.

‘Stop the hate. Accept all that you are and know your flaws are what you make you the PERFECT you. I love my fans and I love my bullies for what they truly NEED is love. Take the high road, there is less traffic. XO’

I mean, has a truer word ever been spoken?! No one should have to experience online bullying, but it’s really great that Ariel used it as an opportunity to reinforce messages of self-acceptance and positivity that we could all do with embracing.
