WARNING: This story contains graphic language

Modern Family star Ariel Winter has deleted her Twitter account after posting a rant against paparazzi.

She took to Instagram to tell her fans that she plans to “delete all social media” soon.

“If a paparazzi attempts to take another f***ing picture in front of my house one more time I swear to god I will find ANY SORT of legal action,” she wrote in her now-deleted Twitter rant.

She continued: “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 sh** out in the news,” the 20-year-old actress wrote.

Last week, Winter was shocked when she received a copyright violation notice for posting a paparazzi photo of herself to her Instagram account.

“What in the f**k @Instagram ?? Lol they removed my photo because it violated someone else’s rights? It’s literally a photo of me that someone sent me on Twitter?” she captioned the photo.

Winter’s decision to delete her social media accounts comes after telling Entertainment Tonight her plans to take a step back from the spotlight.

“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,” she said in March. “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.”

Winter continued: “Paparazzi is kind of really getting on my last nerve.”
