Winter is an advocate of body positivity and feminism, for which she is constantly a target for internet bullies. The actress spreads positive messages on her Instagram and Twitter about being yourself and loving your body. 

In a recent interview with Refinery 29 about body confidence, Winter said, “I went through a lot of hate online, so I tried to change myself for a really long time. But people just kept hating on me no matter what I did. I decided that instead of pleasing these other people, I’ll just spend that time pleasing myself. Those people are going to be rude to me regardless of what I do, so I should just try and be happy with what I am.”
