One of Your Teen TV Faves is Not Here for Chloe Grace Moretz’s ~Body Shaming~

By  | 

Well, Kim Kardashian definitely got what she wanted: attention. Two months after her infamous nude selfie hit the Internet, people are STILL talking about it. This week alone, two teen favorites are making headlines for the snapshot; only, they’re both taking very opposing sides.

When Chloe Grace Moretz first saw the photo, she went on a Twitter rant, saying:

Kim’s response:

Since then, Chloe’s kept less than mum, chatting more about it with Elle magazine and, most recently, Glamour. She told the publication, “I saw that photo, and I had to say something. That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence. It wasn’t a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre. It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see… I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites, and male attention.”

“I wasn’t slut shaming. It’s not about body shaming,” the 19-year-old insisted.

But Ariel Winter is not here for Chloe’s comments. In an even more recent message, the 18-year-old Modern Family actress said, “Many have asked about my opinion on a certain interview… All I’m going to say is this: If you take a photo in which you feel CONFIDENT about yourself and think it spreads a positive image, then GO FOR IT. The ‘background’ doesn’t matter — what matters is the message you are putting out there is true to what YOU believe in — not what anyone else says about YOU.”

She continued, “I do what I can to create that positive light for my fans and I’m sure other celebrities are doing it in THEIR OWN WAY — no need to put on another down. No picture is the exception to someone else’s rule. Even if some people ‘know who they are.’ Live life on your own terms.” The caption: “Body positivity #messageoverbackground #bodypositivity #liveyourlife.”
