In her Instagram post, Winter says she received hateful tweets following the release of the interview that compared how she dresses now to how she was allegedly forced to dress as a minor.
“I’d like to address the tweets I get saying, ‘you accused your mother of sexualizing you yet you’re a whore,” Winter writes. “I was a CHILD being dressed like I was 24. I was 8-13 years old. I wasn’t an ADULT as I am now. As you mature at 16, 17, 18, you further develop your own identity and can make decisions for yourself. As a child, you do as you’re told regardless of what is good for you.”
