Ariel Winter has had it with all of the criticism of her wardrobe choices.

In a lengthy Twitter post she introduced as a “rant,” the “Modern Family” star told off critics in a message that read, in part, “Screw always having to look appropriate or fashionable.”

“Something I wish people would realize … I am not TRYING to be featured on Snapchat, I am not trying to be pap’d everywhere I go, I am literally just LIVING and unfortunately, I can’t do that without paparazzi following me around everyday.”

The actress went on to insist that she isn’t making a deliberate effort to expose her intimate body parts to the public.

“I’m not trying to show you my ass in shorts when I go to the grocery store. I’m trying to live my life. People wear shorts. People have wardrobe malfunctions. No one is perfect. I’m not a stylist!”

Winter wasn’t done there.

“I don’t know what to wear everyday so I look ‘appropriate or fashionable.’ Also, screw always having to look appropriate or fashionable. For what? Society? Who gets to decide what is appropriate or fashionable???? I wear what I like and no one should fault me for that.”

Winter, 19, has frequently been taken to task on social media for her clothing choices. Notably, on Memorial Day, the actress was savaged by critics over the Memorial Day holiday for posting a photo of herself in a bikini.

“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.

Winter has vented about the criticism in the past. In July, she wrote, “”I’m not going to suffer in a turtleneck to please anyone. I’m not a whore because I wear shorts and tank tops. I’m a normal girl. Also, I’m not ‘squeezing’ into anything. My shorts fit me and everything I’m doing is just fine.”
