Nicole Arbour's vitriolic video "Dear Fat People" spawned a slew of think pieces as well as response videos from Meghan Tonjes, Whitney Way Thore, Grace Helbig, and others. But perhaps the very best comeback was from filmmaker Pat Mills, who had, until the video's posting, been in talks with Arbour about hiring her to work on his anti-bullying movie Don’t Talk to Irene.
"Did you even read my script?" Mills asked Arbour in a public statement to Zap2It. "[Don’t Talk to Irene] is a body-positive teen movie. It has a message that is in direct opposition to your cruel and lame YouTube rant. We will not be working together.”
Ooh, sorry, girl. Except, you know, not sorry.
