Chloë Grace Moretz made headlines earlier this week when she admitted to wanting plastic surgery at the age of 16 in an interview with ELLE. She spoke out about the unrealistic beauty standards that plague Hollywood, and now, she’s defending herself against internet trolls who still don’t get it.
“When will people hiding behind computer screens get tired of calling someone ‘fat’ or ‘masculine’….does it make you feel good typing your hateful comments ? Does it fulfill you in some dark way?” Moretz tweeted on Tuesday.
She added that online commenters often forget that their victims are real people with flaws and feelings. “Sit back before you fire away commenting ignorant things and imagine the real HUMAN BEING you are commenting about,” she wrote. “He or she is a PERSON, with feelings and thoughts and a life that you are affecting so negatively.”
In Moretz’s interview with ELLE, she said that she’s learned to accept her insecurities and wants to inspire young women to focus on natural beauty.
And, of course, she ended her Twitter chain in the best way possible: by reminding us it’s time for tacos.
