The 'Modern Family' star took to Twitter on Wednesday (06.09.17) to tell her followers that when they see her derriere in pictures it's because her "a** eats" her shorts.

She wrote: "I literally do not try and show my a** when I wear a** just eats them up and then I don't notice...awkward af. (sic)"

The 19-year-old actress slammed critics last month after being bombarded with comments telling her she shouldn't be "squeezing" herself into such small clothes.

She wrote: "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. It's SUMMER. Get over it. It's hot, obviously I'm going to wear minimal clothes. I'm not going to suffer in a turtleneck to please anyone. I'm not a whore because I wear shorts and tank tops. I'm a normal girl. Also, I'm not "squeezing" into anything. My shorts fit me and everything I'm doing is just fine. Please leave young women alone. We're just living our lives. It's really troubling that we even have to deal with this kind of stuff nowadays. Please stop criticizing everything everyone does!!!!! (sic)"

It isn't the first time the busty brunette has had to defend her outfit choices either, and the beauty previously said she will continue to wear whatever she wants in spite of the hate comments.

She wrote in a note on Twitter in March: "Why TF does anyone care that I didn't dress casual like everyone else for the panel? Why do I have to be like everyone else? Why can't people just let other people feel good about themselves and do what they want? WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT PEOPLE! As long as you feel good about yourself that's what matters. I know I did. Don't ever let anyone stifle who you are and how your express yourself. Rant over :) (sic)"
