A Lot Of People Are Upset About A YouTuber's Fat-Shaming Video
Nicole Arbour's video, which she says was satire, has a lot of people talking.
Comedian Nicole Arbour uploaded a video to YouTube on Friday titled "Dear Fat People." The video, which shows Arbour joking about obese people, struck a chord with many on the internet.
Soon after being uploaded, Arbour's YouTube channel, as well as the videos she'd created, was suspended. She took to Twitter to say that she'd been censored for her comedy.
The video in question technically doesn't break YouTube's guidelines, and Arbour's channel has since been reinstated.
Online criticism of the comedian has spawned a number of reactions — some in favor and some against — Abour's video, which she says was satire.
Lots of people expressed their opinions on social media:
And others, like Whitney Way Thore — who appears in the TLC show My Big Fat Fabulous Life — posted a reaction video in response to Abour's original video, discussing the effects of body-shaming.
Grace Helbig, another popular YouTuber, managed to weigh in on the subject:
Although a lot of people have come down on Arbour for her views on obesity, she still has many who support her.
In addition to the response videos defending Arbour's views, there were many people on Facebook and Twitter who agreed with her as well:
