Ariel Winter Rips ‘Inside Edition’ for Running Her Mother’s ‘Lying’ Interview

”Feeling sad for @InsideEdition that … they feel the need to allow a mother to bash her daughter,“ ”Modern Family“ actress says

Ariel Winter has once again taken aim at the press — and at her estranged mother, Crystal Workman.

On Wednesday, after Inside Edition published an interview in which Workman accused “Modern Family” star Winter of “lying,” the actress fired up her Twitter account and took a couple of shots herself.

“If someone loves and cares about you, they tell you to your face and are right beside you, not on television telling everyone else,” the 19-year-old sitcom star wrote.

“Feeling sad for @InsideEdition that they have nothing else to report on, and that they feel the need to allow a mother to bash her daughter,” Winter added.

In the interview, Workman, who’s publicly criticized her daughter for her wardrobe choices, accused Winter of “lying” about Workman.

“She continues to attack me,” Workman said. “It’s heartbreaking.”

“Some people would say she dresses in such a revealing way now because she was taught to do so as a young child,” Inside Edition suggested to Workman.

“That’s ridiculous,” Workman responded. “She’s just lying.”

Winter has lambasted the exposure given to her mother by the media before. Earlier this month, the actress vented on Twitter after Inside Edition quoted Workman as saying that Winter’s wardrobe choices are a “cry for help.”

“Very sad when someone chooses a public forum to reach out to someone,” Winter wrote. “Also sad when that reach out comes in the form of criticizing.”

Workman uttered that assessment hours after Winter posted a Twitter “rant” that declared, in part, “Screw always having to look appropriate.”

Winter has often been criticized by her choice of clothing. Notably, the actress was savaged on social media on Labor Day, after she posted a photo of herself in a bikini in celebration of the holiday.

“Respect the memorial day,” cautioned one commenter, who punctuated the comment with an eye-rolling emoji.

“bc nothing says happy Memorial Day like sneak peak at her pubes,” offered another.

Workman has also criticized her daughter’s wardrobe choices in the past. In June, Workman told In Touch, “She needs to grow up. I would tell her to dress properly, be the beautiful person she is. I feel sad that she feels the need to expose herself when it’s not necessary … Ariel is smart, beautiful and talented. She is a legitimate actress. She does not need to do this. She is beautiful with her clothes on.
