Ariel Winter issued her first epic clapback of 2019, after a troll accused the Modern Family star of using drugs to lose weight.
Responding to her celebratory New Year’s Eve post, one critic dove in, writing: “drinking underage! Very bad! lol,” to which Winter explained that she was just holding her 31-year-old boyfriend’s glass of bubbly.
But another critic just went for the jugular, writing that underage drinking is “not half as bad as all the coke/meth she uses. She literally dropped 30 ponds.”
First, Winter tackled the typo, writing, “yup…I dropped 30 bodies of water so fast…” Then she hit back at the drug claims, explaining: “And yes!! My psychiatrist switched me from my previous antidepressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight, to coke/meth!! Definitely not a new one that worked and then regulated my metabolism. Coke/meth was a controversial decision but she stands by it.”
Then the commenter adds, “Cute. 30 pounds. Adderall does that. Not hating. You’re actually gorgeous. But pills and nose candy go hand in hand with Hollywood. Enjoy yourself, but don’t get ruined by it.”
To which Winter responds: “Thanks for the compliment…? I’m sure you know EXACTLY what goes on or is hand in hand with EVERYONE in Hollywood seeing as everyone knows everything about people they DON’T know. And apparently everyone does the same thing now??? I couldn’t have lost weight for any other reason just because of the industry I’m in?”
Winter has long battled trolls, many of whom spend a great deal of time critiquing her wardrobe choices on Twitter and Instagram. In July of 2018, she swore off Twitter in particular a for a spell.
