She literally dropped 30 pounds,” the fan wrote in the comment section of an Instagram post response to a user calling Winter out for underage drinking. “My psychiatrist switched me from my previous anti depressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight to coke/meth!! Definitely not a new one that worked and then regulated metabolism. Coke/meth was a controversial decision but she stands by it,” Winter wrote. Before being called too thin, Winter was slammed for being curvy. In 2017, the Modern Family star was accused of wearing shorts that are too small. “Pretty annoyed about the focus on the fact that I wear shorts, and the commentary that I’m ‘squeezing’ into them or the idea that it’s not okay for me to wear shorts,” she wrote on Twitter. “It’s SUMMER. Get over it. It’s hot, I’m obviously going to be wearing minimal clothes.” Ariel Winter.
