Chloe Grace Moretz Has Apologised Over This Weird 'Fat-Shaming' Movie Poster
Chloe Grace Moretz has found herself forced to say sorry after a poster for her new movie kicked up a major stink online.
The actress voices the main character in the upcoming animated Snow White parody, Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarves, which is all about a young girl who finds herself struggling to fit in in a world of skinny princesses.
But the film's poster and (now deleted) trailer premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, it copped a storm of hate online for apparent fat-shaming:

"How did this get approved by an entire marketing team? Why is it okay to tell young kids being fat = ugly?" model Tess Holliday raged in a tweet that's been shared thousands of times, prompting an apology from the film's star herself.
"I have now fully reviewed the mkting for Red Shoes, I am just as appalled and angry as everyone else, this wasn't approved by me or my team," Moretz tweeted.
Pls know I have let the producers of the film know. I lent my voice to a beautiful script that I hope you will all see in its entirety https://t.co/IOIXYZTc3g
The actual story is powerful for young women and resonated with me. I am sorry for the offense that was beyond my creative control https://t.co/HZP2ydPCAX

And the film's producer Sujin Hwang has echoed her sentiments: “Our film, a family comedy, carries a message designed to challenge social prejudices related to standards of physical beauty in society by emphasising the importance of inner beauty," he said.
The movie's controversial marketing campaign has now been binned, with Red Shoes scheduled to hit screens in 2018.
