Ariel Winter posts raunchy photo with boyfriend Levi Meaden days after 'deleting all social media'
After what seemed like her being 'in the process of deleting all social media', the 20-year-old actress documented her seemingly fun filled 4th of July weekend on her Instagram.
Earlier this week, a very outraged and visibly pissed off Ariel Winter had announced that she was going to delete all of her social media accounts. With what had started off as her Twitter account going poof right away, looks like things might have a brighter turn for her social media fans and followers, as the 'Modern Family' star posted quite the racy snap of her boyfriend Levi Meaden, 30, squeezing her buttcheeks.
After what seemed like her being 'in the process of deleting all social media', the 20-year-old actress documented her seemingly fun filled 4th of July weekend on her Instagram, with snaps of her with her beau and other friends too. The photos show Ariel sporting a white summer playsuit along with matching patent leather combat boots for the Boosty Bellows party at Nobu Malibu.
This post comes shortly after Ariel had shockingly announced over her Instagram stories on Tuesday that she was 'in the process of deleting all social media'. Soon after, her Twitter account was deleted while her Instagram account remained active for the next couple of days quite drama free at that too until she decided to stir up users by posting a gym selfie.
The explicit T-shirt Ariel chose to flaunt at the gym, read, 'keep calm and eat a bag of d**ks'. While it is still not known if Ariel's social media outrage and what followed after was a result of the comments she received on this post, but it's definite — the actress, as per her signature style — was not ready to take any sh*t from anybody. Be it seedy pervs commenting on her photos, or the paparazzi, who she believes have been breaching her privacy.
While Ariel is currently gearing up for her upcoming tenth and final season of 'Modern Family', the whole paparazzi ordeal has been leaving her quite unsettled too, as was clear from one of the tweets she had posted before deleting her account. “If a paparazzi attempts to take another f***ing picture in front of my house one more time I swear to god I will find ANY SORT of legal action,” she wrote on Tuesday afternoon.
The said paparazzi reference is still unclear and lost upon fans and followers, but clearly, whatever had happened was enough to irk her. She also added, “Sad when you literally enjoy your job but hate every part of the fame aspect. Also sad when you desperately want to move somewhere remote so you can just live a normal life in peace. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I hate being followed and I hate my s*** out in the news.”
The post ended with the waving-hand emoji, as she bid her followers farewell before quitting the social media platform. Unfortunately for her, however, she has always been in the limelight for the most dramatic reasons ever. Be it her estranged mother who gives interviews to tabloids — thereby causing their whole family drama to play out in front of the public eye, or whatever social media trouble she's landed into — drama just seems to follow her around.
Speaking her social media and paparazzi invading her privacy, just days ago, Ariel had posted a photo of herself (believed to be a paparazzi shot) where she can be seen filling up her car's tank at a gas station. Winter cracked a joke about the expression on her face, prompting co-star and friend Sarah Hyland to follow suit. Hyland also called out sexual comments some people had made in response to Winter’s photo.
Shockingly, Ariel's post got deleted by Instagram on the accounts of violating the photographer's rights apparently, since she hadn't paid for the usage of it. Initially confused, Ariel soon resorted to rebelling in the most classic manner ever. She reported the photo and vowed o keep doing so as a matter of principle, claiming it was a photo of her own self after all.
“Posting again for the idiots who took down MY PHOTO for violating someone else’s copyright,” she told her followers. “They violated my space so I should at least be able to post it when I want to or just not be f***ing photographed. Will repost every time it’s taken down.” Sadly, a lot of people commented that they hope the photographer took Winter to court, even though her fans — including Zendaya — showed support by liking it and uplifting her right to privacy.
As for staying away from social media, Ariel's decision to quit Twitter comes after her very candid interview with Entertainment Tonight where she disclosed the price she has to pay for fame. “One day you did something great, and the next day you’re, like, plastered as a thousand other things. It’s a really difficult industry. We’re blessed to be in (it), and be able to make content that we love and that other people love, but it’s also an industry. It is true. It builds you up, and it can tear you down just as fast."
