Ariel Winter received over 6 million likes for baring her bikini buns in a thong to welcome the New Year in 2020, but not everyone seeing the video approved. Kicking that year off to a bootylicious start, the 26-year-old soaked up Mother Nature in footage showing her by the ocean, but it looks like some were raising eyebrows over the amount of skin on show. When The Daily Mail covered the Instagram post, users lashed out at Ariel, stating that her display was trashy and even calling her the opposite of "classy."

Scroll for the video. Gazing out to the ocean as she stood amid rocks, Ariel let sunlight pour all over her as she stripped down to a black thong pair of bikini bottoms.

Eventually turning her face to the camera, Ariel smiled, throwing out the peace sign with one hand before doing the same with the other. Drawing the eye from her peachy posterior to her gorgeous face as she melted fans with her smile, Ariel proved popular on Instagram, but feedback on The Daily Mail saw her face a tougher crowd.

"So desperate for one so young," the leading comment reads. At the time of the post, Ariel was 22 years old. "Anyone else so sick of this style of bathing suit? I guess it's become the new normal to let your butt cheeks hang out but it's getting old. Also why do they all wear it like this around their kids and parents?? So weird," another said.

Asked To 'Keep It Classy'

Sending Ariel Winter love, but nonetheless damning the post, a third jumped in to say: "Brilliant actress and is beyond amazing in modern family. She is a stunning girl. I wish she didn't feel the need to keep appearing barely dressed. Keep it classy Ariel."

This set of users would likely have approved of the above photo. In September 2020, Ariel got busy in quarantine as she dyed her hair pink, delivering fans this IG shot as she posed outdoors in a leggy, hot pink miniskirt and billowing white shirt. Showing off her toned legs following her 2019 weight loss, Ariel wrote: "Served you up some cotton candy & flowers for your Wednesday *insert much-needed cotton candy emoji here.*"
