What do you do when you see the hashtag #FavNashVid trending on Twitter? Well if you’re Ariel Winter, you call out Vine star Nash Grier for his past "homophobic and ignorant" comments.

The Modern Family actress took to Twitter on the weekend to remind her followers of a clip Grier posted in 2013 where he used a homophobic slur in response to an ad for HIV testing.

Winter said, “#FavNashVid that one time he was just super homophobic and ignorant?” She followed up the comment with her own hashtag #whydoyouhavefans.

She later posted a note to her Twitter and Instagram accounts explaining her thoughts about the Vine star, calling him out for his homophobic, sexist and racist comments of the past few years.

Winter wrote, “How can one person say so many terrible things on every end of the spectrum and never realise they’re wrong? I also don’t buy that you were young and didn’t understand the impact of your words. You and I are the same age, and regardless of what you say, we live in America, not under a rock.”

Winter continued, “You only apologised for that video and stopped using that phrase after it started affecting your pocketbook and chipping away at your fame”.

In response to @nashgrier from my last post...

Hayes Grier tried to defend his brother Nash and told Winter to “quit being childish” and that “they for real don’t want us to make it”.

Nash Grier followed up with a few comments of his own.

And he responded to Winter’s post, asking to speak to her via direct messaging.

But cool cat Winter was having none of that.

This isn't the first time Ariel Winter has used her social media accounts to speak up. Last year, she hit back at haters by telling her followers to celebrate who they are.

 

Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this? The height of a girl's skirt or whatever she is wearing for that matter, does not imply what she is asking for. It sickens me to think at 17 years old, a photo of myself with my nieces is suggesting that I'm "asking for it". I typically never give power to the mean things people bravely say behind their computer screens on the Internet, but this is for the girls who are constantly bullied whether it be online or at school.. You are not asking for anything because of what you are wearing- you are expressing yourself and don't you ever think you deserve the negativity as the consequence to what you are wearing- YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Celebrate you and don't let anyone's comments allow you to think less of yourself. Us girls have to stick together!!!!!!
