Chloë Grace Moretz is all of us. 

Just one day after revealing she is indeed a human with insecurities who once contemplated plastic surgery, Moretz says she is facing a number of body-shaming trolls online, who are calling her "fat" and "masculine."

The 19-year-old, understandably, thinks that's pretty pitiful. So on Tuesday morning, she headed over to Twitter to tell them just that. 

"When will people hiding behind computer screens get tired of calling someone 'fat' or 'masculine,'" she tweeted to her more than 2.4 million followers. "Does it make you feel good typing your hateful comments? Does it fulfill you in some dark way?"

"Sit back before you fire away commenting ignorant things and imagine the real HUMAN BEING you are commenting about," she continued. "He or she is a PERSON, with feelings and thoughts and a life that you are affecting so negatively." 

She then called for an end to online body shaming, calling upon her years in the spotlight (she's been acting since she was 7). 

"I've spent my whole life in front of cameras growing up with miscellaneous people judging and critiquing every little thing about myself," she said. "And it's time we all stop hiding behind keyboards pretending we know even the smallest thing about the people we judge."

At the end of her Twitter rant, she apparently decided to do what all wise people do after getting riled up over negative comments online: Eat some fucking tacos. 

More it more, it seems, younger female celebrities are the victims of the most aggressive online shaming. There's Moretz, of course, but then there's also Ariel Winter, who is just 18 and regularly faces body shaming online. 

Just last week, Winter had to issue a statement to all the people who had made assumptions about her sex life (reminder: she's 18) based upon what she wears. 

"Dear sorry body shamers, I looked HOT in that dress," she wrote. "And if you hate it, don't buy it. But please get a hobby." 

Between Moretz and Winter, these online haters themselves are now facing a powerful duo armed with a strong sense of self-worth and an even stronger determination to take them down.
