Ariel Winter slams mother over 'grow up' statement, calls her toxic

Chrystal Workman’s comments about Ariel Winter’s racy looks didn’t sit well with her daughter.

The “Modern Family” star took to Twitter Wednesday where she hinted at Workman’s recent interview with In Touch concerning her estranged child:

The 19-year-old’s tweet came shortly after Workman told the celebrity gossip magazine Winter “needs to grow up.”


“I would tell her to dress properly, be the beautiful person she is,” explained Workman. “I feel sad that she feels the need to expose herself when it’s not necessary. Ariel is smart, beautiful, and talented. She is a legitimate actress. She does not need to do this. She is beautiful with her clothes on."

Winter started opting for skimpy fashion choices in recent years. In 2015, she was emancipated from her mother and had surgery to reduce her breasts from an F to a D.

PEOPLE reported in 2012 Winter alleged her mother attempted to sexualize her when she was 14. Workman has denied the allegation.

“I would not do that,” she told In Touch.
