The dust is finally settling following a vicious war of words ripping the United States apart. Well, one of them, anyway.
Chlo Grace Moretz has found some peace following her Twitter feud with Kim Kardashian West over nude selfies thanks to none other than Hillary Clinton.
It all began this spring when Moretz joined the chorus of people who decided to speak out against Kim’s sexy selfie habit.
“I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” Moretz tweeted, sparking outrage and accusations of slut shaming.
Kim responded with the classic, “Let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is,” and karried on with the nude selfies and booming tech ventures.
I think I gave my attention to people that didnt deserve my attention. So in some ways I think I regret giving them the attention, [though] I don’t regret what I said, Moretz explained to The Hollywood Reporter while reflecting on the feud. But also I realized that being the most opinionated and loud person in the room is not always the most impactful. I learned that from Hillary.”
By Hillary, she means Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, who Moretz has campaigned for. Apparently, she’s also getting some lessons in diplomacy, and Clinton’s wisdom has helped her devise a strategy going forward.
“‘Its great to be feisty, those were her exact words,” said Moretz. “But sometimes the smartest way to get into the psyche of people is to be the quietest person in the room. 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 should be noted that Clinton is an impartial voice in this feud, and as far as we know, has not flip-flopped on her stance on Kardashian West selfies.
We may never truly know how many celebrity feuds Clinton has had a hand in extinguishing.
Perhaps Katy Perry, one of Clinton’s most visible supporters, also took her advice to heart while she kept fairly quiet as her feud with Taylor Swift played out very publicly.
In fact, when Calvin Harris dragged Perry into his mini Twitter meltdown over Hiddleswift, Perry simply responded with a Hillary Clinton GIF and a retweet of one of her old tweets.
Time, the ultimate truth teller.
