YouTuber and self-proclaimed comedian Nicole Arbour, notable for a past viral rant about “Instagram Models,” has found herself at the center of controversy surrounding a new video, titled “Dear Fat People.”
“Some people are already really mad at this video,” she says at the beginning of the video, then taunts, “What are you going to do, fat people? What are you gonna do? Chase me?”
In the six-minute diatribe, Arbour claims that fat-shaming is “not a thing.” “Fat people made that up. That’s the race card, with no race,” she says, suggesting she could “shame people who have bad habits until they f**king stop...If we offend you so much that you lose weight, I’m OK with that.”
Days after the video went live, Arbour claimed that it was deleted by YouTube:
Other prominent YouTubers have questioned her tweet and posited that she deleted it herself. Either way, the video is live again, though the comments have now been disabled.
Arbour claimed in another tweet that the video was supposed to be “satire”:
For the record, here is the dictionary definition of satire: “noun 1. The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.” (So, probably not this video.)
She went on to claim that if she were a “traditional comedian” -- i.e., in her words, if she were a man -- her comments wouldn’t have been controversial:
It would be fair to say Arbour made "Dear Fat People" just to get attention, and by writing about it, we are all just giving her the attention she wants. Which is probably true, but there have also been some wonderful, thoughtful responses that are worthy of attention.
