‘You are killing yourself’: Female comedian posts scathing YouTube rant about why ‘obese people’ deserve to be ‘shamed’ for their ‘bad habits and overeating’.

Comedian and YouTube star Nicole Arbour has posted video rant in which she says that “fat-shaming is not a thing,” claims obese people should be shamed into losing weight and compares people who are overweight to slow-moving zombies and Frankenstein’s monster. A female comedian, who has come under fire for her controversial video shaming ‘fat people’, claims the explosive clip got her YouTube page temporarily disabled as many social media stars speak out against her harsh words.But after her viral video “Dear Fat People” received outcry from commenters and leaders in the body acceptance community, her YouTube and Google+ channels were temporarily disabled Sunday. “We literally broke the Internet… With comedy. #censorship” Arbour tweeted after her account was taken down. (It has since been reinstated.) The video remained posted at Facebook, where it has more than 18 million views and 175,000 likes.

The latest video of the comedian attacks people overweight and gives a very nasty look at how YouTube stars thrive on hateful ideas as they attack people for shock value. The video is a verbal open letter to fat people and boils down to how she is sickened by their appearance and the fact that they are considered disabled. In the YouTube community, where acceptance has flourished and users are prompted to share their own stories (including the high-profile, celebrity-driven “It Gets Better” campaign), the video’s backlash was not unexpected.

Whitney Way Thore, star of TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life, took issue with the video and posted a response of her own, which has gained about 50,000 views. That means you are too fat, and you should stop eating.’ Nicole explains that she is not talking about people who have a ‘little cushion for the pushing’ or people with specific health conditions, but rather the ’35 per cent of North Americans who are obese’. ‘If we offend you so much that you lose weight, I’m okay with that,’ she says. ‘You are killing yourself.

In Nicole Arbour’s six-minute rant which includes cussing and goes into detail describing how overweight people should lose weight and how overweight people are causing her unnecessary grief, the negativity is quite intense. According to Medical Daily on Sunday, the YouTube creator appeared to intentionally start the fight online as Arbour anticipated the negative responses, which is why the video comments are disabled. She retells her experiences dealing with “The Fat Family” that annoyed her recently at an airport and mentions that the term “plus-size” stands for heart disease, knee problems, diabetes and your family and friends crying because they needed a Coke with fries. Maybe I am jealous that you get to eat whatever you want.’ ‘Obesity is a disease?’ she asks. ‘Yeah, so is being a shopaholic – but I don’t get a f***king parking pass.

Not able to walk away from the undesirable projections of the video, several people have stepped up to correct Nicole Arbour’s discussion on weight. Pointing out how people actually are killing themselves over the social pressures focused on the way someone looks, it appears that Nicole Arbour is way off the mark when it comes to her take of so-called fat people.

Nicole remembers that when she sat down in her aisle seat, she was asked if she could move for a disabled person – who ended up being the son from the ‘fat family’. While social media is freaking out about Nicole Arbour’s latest video, the YouTube star just reinforced why Hollywood is so resistant to this type of celebrity. I am saying this because your friends should be saying it to you.’ After posting the video on YouTube, she disabled the comments, tweeting: ‘It doesn’t mean I’m scared, it means I don’t give a f**k what you have to say’. According to CNN, Nicole’s video had gotten a half a million views before she received an email from Google, YouTube’s owner, saying she was violating its terms before her entire YouTube channel was temporarily shut down over the weekend.

Leaving her, as well as other YouTube personalities like her, left receiving her 15-minutes of fame by bullying people in the world instead of using her talent. You cannot tell a person’s health, physical or otherwise from looking at them.” • Thore: “Heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, these are illnesses that affect millions of people worldwide from skinny to fat and everything in between.” Shortly after Thore posted her response, many tens of thousands rallied around her to show their support though some continued criticizing her and even encouraged her to “kill herself.” Arbour claims her YouTube account was suspended over the video, though it appears to be live again as of Monday afternoon. Which really bums me out,’ she says. ‘I just consider you kind of mean.’ And Tony Posnanski, from Orlando, Florida, wrote about about how he was the ‘fat kid sitting next to Nicole Arbour’ on the flight she referenced in her video. ‘The truth is you humiliated me by yelling and screaming about my weight,’ he wrote to Nicole. ‘You made a mockery of a little boy for being different than you. Said Tonjes: “For every person that’s gonna leave a comment on that video saying, ‘I watched this and it changed my life and it made me go to the gym and take my life in my own hands and my health,’ I promise you there’s 5 more people that are, like, sinking a little bit more into themselves and feel worthless watching something like that.”
