Self-proclaimed feminist Chloë Grace Moretz opened up to Complex Magazine about her issue with squads. It’s not that she’s necessarily throwing shade at them, or their purported creator Taylor Swift, but she thinks they breed a friendship based on inclusion.READ MORE: Serinda Swan On Her Character Dr. Jenny Cooper In The CW's 'Coroner': 'The Humanity Seen In Jenny Is Really Resonating With People'
“They appropriate exclusivity,” she said. “They’re cliques!” For every person who is part of someone’s squad, there are others who are left out, which bothers Moretz as a means of friendship. As it turns out, Swift asked Moretz to join her squad. When asked if she had, the actress didn’t respond directly and would only reply about the pop star, “She’s a very talented person.”READ MORE: Amy Smart On 'DC's Stargirl': 'It's Pure Entertainment'
Instead, Moretz stressed that she’s focusing on more than women’s empowerment. “It’s about equality—and it’s not just about women being powerful. It’s about races being powerful; genders being powerful,” she explained.
Moretz recently took issue with Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie, tweeting to the reality TV star that she should set an example for young women everywhere and teach them they have more to offer than their bodies alone. She later insisted she wasn’t shading Kim, and didn’t want young girls to be afraid to speak their mind as a result of the way Kim responded to her.MORE NEWS: Penn Jillette On Looking Forward To Getting Back On Stage Post-COVID: 'I Love Doing Shows, It's Really Been My Whole Life'
