    Ariel Winter is responding to criticism she received for her most recent daring outfit.

    If you don't like it you don't have to wear it.

    That was essentially Ariel Winter's message as the "Modern Family" star snapped back on social media after being trolled for wearing a revealing outfit to a recent Academy of Television Arts and Sciences television panel in Hollywood with several of her more casually dressed co-stars.

    It's not the first time the 19-year-old has come under fire for some of her more daring attire. The teen sensation, who is currently co-starring Hollywood icon Burt Reynolds in the new film "Dog Years," has become something of an Instagram sensation and considers herself a body acceptance advocate. 

    In 2015, Winter shared a bikini pic and the lurid comments that followed sparked a direct response from her and a similar message to other girls.

    "Celebrate you and don't let anyone's comments allow you to think less of yourself," she urged via Instagram at the time. "Us girls have to stick together!!!!!!"
