Chloe Grace Moretz Brilliantly Outclasses Kim Kardashian In Bowing Out Of Feud
The only competition getting more attention in 2016 than the war between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is the ongoing drama between Taylor Swift and Kanye West, a conflict which has drafted a long list of celebrities. Among them is actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who offered her thoughts about the drama and offered the suggestion that Americans and even those involved in the Swift/West drama take a step back and put things into perspective. For her trouble, Moretz was met with insults and public bullying, but, instead of stooping down to that level, Chloe chose to rise above it to set a classier example for her female fans.
Chloe Grace Moretz Responds To Kim Kardashian With Class
Vanity Fair shares the news that Chloe Grace Moretz, who has long been a supporter of Hillary Clinton, spoke at this year’s Democratic National Convention and used her star power to challenge attendees to make their own voices heard through the election process. She urged everyone to get out and vote in November, suggesting that broad sweeping changes may occur, if the people participate. Moretz was applauded for her confident and authoritative voice, but, in responding to questions to her leadership skills, she credits Ms. Clinton and her feud with Kim Kardashian for teaching her the best traits of a good leader.
Earlier this year, Moretz replied to one of Ms. Kardashian’s countless nude photos.
“I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than our bodies,” tweeted Chloe.
“Let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo,” Kim responded.
Moretz felt it was important to fire back at Kardashian, pointing out that using one’s power as a celebrity to “slut shame” another person, celebrity or not, was an abuse of that immense power. Chloe added that bullying someone online was beneath her.
Taylor Swift Reignited The Chloe Grace Moretz/Kim Kardashian Feud
When the controversy between Taylor Swift and Kanye West reignited the feud between Moretz and Kardashian, Us Weekly reveals Chloe again responded to one of Kim’s tweets by suggesting that, as an admired pop culture icon, Ms. Kardashian has a responsibility to present herself as a positive role model for young girls and growing young women. That remark stirred further insults from Kardashian, including a post in which Kim posted a picture of Moretz taken by paparazzi. The image showed an unintentional wardrobe malfunction in which Chloe’s lady bits were revealed.
It was certainly a humiliating moment for Chloe Grace Moretz, but the actress and Hillary Clinton supporter has risen above it and now, months later, says she still does not regret speaking her mind. Even so, she admits she might have been better off going about it in a different way.
“I realized if I stop talking about the negativity then it can’t thrive. And that’s something I came to very, very recently,” Moretz said. “I think I gave my attention to people that didn’t deserve my attention. So in some ways, I think I regret giving them the attention, [though] I don’t regret what I said.”
Afterward, Chloe added that she learned from her own idol, Ms. Clinton, that it’s not always the best thing to be the loudest person in the room. One can be both feisty and quiet, if she learns how to manipulate the situation, adds Ms. Moretz.
“But sometimes the smartest way to get into the psyche of people is to be the quietest person in the room,” says Chloe Grace Moretz. “Let everyone else bicker and throw their words around and then you come in with the quiet voice and that will be the most impactful.”
It has been asked why Chloe Grace Moretz felt compelled to become embroiled in the feud n the first place. In response, Chloe explained that her initial remarks were made out of frustration. She had just returned from an exhaustive trip from South Korea and the image of Kim Kardashian seemed to be compounding the problems she had witnessed on her trip. Here was a celebrity exposing herself not to contribute toward female self-esteem, but simply for the purpose of getting attention.
“That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence. It wasn’t a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre. It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see. … I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites and male attention. … I wasn’t slut-shaming. It’s not about body shaming,” explained Ms. Moretz.
