Okay, so after years of hype, winter never really came to Westeros — but did it show up at a Malibu plastic surgeon’s office instead?
Yes, that’s our extremely lame way of introducing the latest round of Ariel Winter plastic surgery accusations.
Interest in Ariel’s sitcom may be dwindling as Modern Family wraps up its 47th season, but on social media, the actress’ influence continues to grow.
Unfortunately, accumulating 4 million Instagram followers means being subject to a LOT of scrutiny, and because social media in 2019 is basically an open manhole, all that attention is gonna result in a whole lot of hateful comments.
Sadly, Ariel is no stranger to body shaming, but fortunately, she typically wards off the trolls with surprising skill.
But this latest round of trash talk is surprisingly specific, and bullies who really put a lot of thought into their idiocy are often the most dangerous kind.
Ariel looks different in some of her recent pics, but that’s only because of her Little Mermaid-hued locks.
(That name-appropriate comparison is hers, not ours. She captioned the above pic, “part of yourrrrrr worrrrrld”)
But some extremely-online jackass who fancies himself a celebrity sleuth believes there’s more to the story.
And thus, in what he probably considered some consummate act of d-bag bravery he “called out” Ariel and accused her of undergoing cosmetic surgery.
“How many surgeries have you had on your body and face now?” sayeth the basement-dwelling goblin.
When other followers pointed out that Ariel has spoken openly about her breast reductions and does not appear to have had any other work done, the troll presented his case in full:
“Two breast reductions, that’s obvious, cheek bone and chin shaving and lip fillers. Pretty obvious, she looks so different #Truth,” he replied.
Wow. He used the #Truth hashtag, so it has to be true, right?
Yeah, not so much.
Ariel was quick to clap back and point out that nothing dude said has any basis in fact.
“I wasn’t going to reply but I HAVE to ask…what the f–k is cheek bone and chin shaving????” Winter remarked, adding:
“You’re also wrong about all of it by the way. One breast reduction & I lost weight but you do you boo.”
That’s how you do it folks:
Keep your sense of humor intact, set the record straight, and move on.
Sure, there are times when it’s best to simply not acknowledge the haters at all.
But to paraphrase Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, sometimes it’s important to not take any guff from these swine.
