Chloe Moretz Pleads for Fans to See Her New Film, Despite Fat-Shaming Poster

By  | 

Chloe Grace Moretz knows what it’s like to be body-shamed in a public forum, which is why we were pretty shocked when we saw the poster for her new movie, Red Shoes & the 7 Dwarfs. The promotional image depicted a tall, skinny girl alongside a short, chubby woman, with the caption, “What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 Dwarfs not so short?”

Many people, including popular plus-size model Tess Holliday, called the 20-year-old out for the pic, which they felt implied that you have to be thin to be beautiful.

The actress stayed quiet about the backlash for several hours, but eventually took to Twitter to respond and let fans know she was equally as upset as they were to see such a discriminatory pic promoting her film.

Chloe also asked people to still give Red Shoes & the 7 Dwarfs a chance, because “the actual story is powerful for young women.”

Hopefully, the marketing team will pull the hurtful promo and formally apologize for offending people.
