Chloe Grace Moretz is upset over the ad campaign for "Red Shoes & the 7 Dwarfs" that has been criticized as body shaming, and she let everyone know in a post on Twitter.

Moretz, who provides the voice of Snow White in the retelling of the children's classic, went to social media after complaints arose about the advertising, said CNN.

For example, one billboard ad shows two women – one taller and slimmer than the other – side by side with the tagline: "What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the seven dwarfs not so short?"

In the film's trailer, noted the Washington Post, two dwarfs hide in Snow White's room and watch her undress. When she removes her red shoes, she transforms into a heavier girl who slumps down on the couch and burps. The dwarfs look at her disgusted.

Moretz said in her Twitter post that she had no no say or knowledge about the advertising.

CNN said plus-size model Tess Holliday was one of the first to tweet about the ad campaign with others, which drew attention at the Cannes Film Festival.

One of the film's producers, Sujin Hwang, told "Entertainment Tonight" that the campaign had been terminated and apologized.

"Our film, a family comedy, carries a message designed to challenge social prejudices related to standards of physical beauty in society by emphasizing the importance of inner beauty," Hwang said.

"We appreciate and are grateful for the constructive criticism of those who brought this to our attention. We sincerely regret any embarrassment or dissatisfaction this mistaken advertising has caused to any of the individual artists or companies involved with the production or future distribution of our film, none of whom had any involvement with creating or approving the now discontinued advertising campaign," the statement continued.
