An upcoming parody of “Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs” is getting a lot of backlash.
The animated movie is titled “Red Shoes and The Seven Dwarfs”.
It premiered last week at the Cannes Film Festival. The movie’s marketing caught everyone’s attention, because it shows a slim Snow White transformed into a curvier version with the tag line “What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 Dwarfs no so short?”
Many read that tagline to be body shaming curvier woman as “no longer beautiful”. The movie’s trailer doesn’t make the controversial movie look any better.
The movie’s production company apologized and said that advertising campaign is being terminated. The movie is supposed to challenge social prejudices related to standard of beauty.
Chloe Grace Moretz voices “Red Shoes” also apologized for the movie’s marketing,
