Ariel Winter has posted an emotional rant to her social media accounts, promising to wipe every account she has from the internet.

The glamorous Modern Family star, 20, was upset by the invasive presence of photographers outside her home.

She posted the following to her Instagram story:

“If a paparazzi attempts to take another f**king picture in front of my house one more time I swear to god I will find ANY SORT of legal action.

“Sad when you literally enjoy your job but hate every part of the fame aspect. Also sad when you desperately want to move somewhere remote so you can just live a normal life in peace.

“I can’t speak for anyone else, but I hate being followed and I hate my s*** out in the news.”

She then deleted her Twitter account, posting the following on her Instagram story that she was ‘in the process’ of deleting all her social media accounts. However, at the time of this article she was posting happy snaps to her Insta story.

Earlier this month, Ariel spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her plans to retreat from public life:

“Having every little aspect of your life in the public eye, it’s really hard, because it gives more room for criticism, and I just want to live,

“So I think I try and stay out of it as much as possible, unless I need to be in it. I don’t really go anywhere to be seen or anything like that. I’ll go to a red carpet, if I’m in (the movie), or if I’m supporting my boyfriend or my friends. But otherwise I usually just stay home.”

She told ET about the fleeting nature of success in the entertainment industry:

“One day you did something great, and the next day you’re, like, plastered as a thousand other things. It’s a really difficult industry…

“We’re blessed to be in (it), and be able to make content that we love and that other people love, but it’s also an industry. It is true. It builds you up, and it can tear you down just as fast…”
