A poster for a Snow White movie featuring the voice of Chloe Grace Moretz is coming under fire for body shaming. Journalists at the Cannes Film Festival snapped a picture of the marketing materials for the animated Snow White parody which was being shopped around for buyers. The film is called “Red Shoes And The Seven Dwarfs”, and the poster depicts a slender Snow White next to a shorter, heavier female character while the tagline reads, “What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 Dwarfs not so short?” Many people are upset by the negative body image messaging, and Moretz has issued an apology saying the poster was beyond her “creative control” and that she is “just as appalled and angry as everyone else”.
