Sarah Hyland jumps to Ariel Winter's defense after troll criticizes co-star's see-through dress

It's a sad fact that, on social media, women are subject to a colossal amount of scrutiny and criticism. In fact, the pressure heaped on women to be picture perfect at all times can be downright suffocating sometimes, and nobody knows this more than celebrities.

Yes, if you're famous you can expect trolls to come crawling out of the woodwork and start dishing out unsolicited reproval over your physical attributes, career, personality, and wardrobe choices.

Ariel Winter recently spoke about her experiences on Modern Family in this interview with Jimmy Kimmel:

Two actresses who know all too well how dispiriting it can be to be subjected to the constant harping criticism of trolls are former Modern Family stars Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter, who once played Haley and Alex Dunphy respectively on the hit sitcom.

Hyland has often been body-shamed by trolls in the past over after losing a lot of weight due to developing debilitating kidney dysplasia, and Ariel has also been subjected to trolling over her decision to lose weight and go through breast reduction surgery.

However, it's clear that the two onscreen sisters still have each other's back, and when a cruel troll made an unwelcome comment about Ariel's sartorial choices, Sarah was quick to jump to her defense.

The trouble began when the three Dunphy kid actors (Hyland, Winter, and Nolan Gould) were pictured together enjoying a night out, and Hyland uploaded the pics to her official Instagram account.

She captioned them: "I love these people with all my heart. 11 years together is proof you and your tv sister will start wearing the same outfit, siblings for life will be made, and you’ll forever fight over the same professor ? We’ll always be Dunphys and we’ll always have each other ❤️[sic]" 

However, one commenter seemed to take umbrage over Ariel's clothes, and wrote: "What's up with ariel winters outfit tho [sic]" to which Sarah Hyland promptly replied: "you that she's ? ?? I KNOW. [sic]"

However, this isn't the first time Sarah's caught flak over her social media posting. Back in November, she received a decidedly mixed response after posting a pretty NSFW photo of herself and her fiancé on Instagram.
