People are really upset over this 'Snow White' parody poster

Chloë Grace Moretz isn’t happy about her upcoming film, an animated "Snow White" parody. She said the film still has value, but the slogan is offensive.


Chloë Grace Moretz isn’t happy about her upcoming film.

Moretz released a series of tweets this week railing against her upcoming animated picture “Red Shoes & the 7 Dwarves,” a parody remake of the classic Snow White tale that comes with an off-putting slogan.







The South Korean children's film recently debuted at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Last month, Moretz announced she would voice the main character.

Now, she’s speaking out against the film’s slogan, according to People magazine. She said the film still has value, but the slogan is offensive.



















“Red Shoes” follows seven different princes on a journey to find a pair of shoes that originally morphed into dwarves. But the shoes belong to Snow White, which uses them to “transform her from a short, curvy woman into a tall, thin woman,” according to People magazine.



Locus, the company behind the film, said the movie intends to share an empowering message about body image, according to BuzzFeed News.

People on Twitter shared discomfort with the film’s slogan.
