Chloe Grace Moretz has responded to the controversy surrounding a new poster for her new film Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs.
The poster for the animated parody of the Snow White fairytale shows two versions of the main character - one is tall and thin, the other is shorter and wider.
The text on the poster reads, “What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 Dwarfs not so short?”.
People have called out the poster, saying that it promotes body-shaming.

Taking to Twitter, Chloe said those posters were not approved by her or her team and added that "the actual story is powerful for young women and resonated with me. I am sorry for the offence that was beyond my creative control".
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— Chloë Grace Moretz (@ChloeGMoretz) May 31, 2017
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— Chloë Grace Moretz (@ChloeGMoretz) May 31, 2017
