Pamela Anderson has come out in support of Ariel Winter against the “Modern Family” star’s online body shamers.
Winter, 21, stepped out in a black cocktail dress at a party this week, revealing a slimmed-down physique and a stunning new red hairstyle.
But the former child star has been slammed by some online critics over her sudden weight change – including from some who even suggested she’d had plastic surgery, which Winter denied.
Former “Baywatch” star Anderson – who wrote “Stay strong @ArielWinter1” – explained on Twitter, “This social media world is a playground for shamers. It takes no thought or time to hurt people….it goes as far as the President of the United States. He’s definitely set a horrible example of self-restraint.”
Speaking from personal experience, Anderson sympathized, “While we all read our comments and are happy when we receive praise and devastated when someone is mean. And we want to defend ourselves. It’s a waste of energy to engage.”
Pamela Anderson is officially a Vogue cover girl.
The former Playboy pin-up, 51, just made her debut on a very different type of magazine, starring on three covers for Vogue Czechoslovakia’s June issue.
The “Baywatch” star strikes some dramatic seaside poses for the triptych covers photographed by Dan Beleiu in Cassis, France, posing in Chanel, Saint Laurent, Versace and Savage x Fenty alongside the phrase “Who wants to kill Pamela Anderson?”
“Miracles happen,” the publication wrote on its Instagram account alongside one of the images, explaining that the shoot was inspired by the 1966 cult Czech film “Who Wants to Kill Jessie?” starring Anderson look-alike Olga Schoberova.
In the interview that accompanies the shoot, the longtime animal rights activist says, “Every girl wants to feel sexy. I think of myself as a socialist feminist. I love men. I don’t like authority,” adding, “Be careful who you share your weaknesses with. Some people can’t wait for the opportunity to use them against you.”
