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.”
