Comic Nicole Arbour refuses to apologize for controversial ‘Dear Fat People’ video.

Host Whoopi Goldberg credited Arbour for even stopping by and facing the music over the video that many people have called bullying and fat-shaming. (Arbour claims that fat-shaming is not a “thing.”) “If we offend you so much that you lose weight, I’m OK with that.

You are killing yourself,” Ms Arbour said in the video uploaded to YouTube, which now has more than five million views. “I’m a comic so if I’m going to make a joke about a fat person, I’m going to say I’m fat first. Host Michelle Collins agreed and said she felt watching Ms Arbour as a “skinny blonde girl” discussing the topic of overweight people was “borderline bullying”. “That video was made to offend people, just the way I do with my other videos. They’re like, ‘You can’t make fun of some people, and not make fun of me, too.” “You take it on yourself first, and then maybe you can do a joke, but you didn’t do that and then you sort of hide behind this, ‘Well, it’s not healthy.’ That’s bull, and you know it.

But the movie’s director, Pat Mills, saw her YouTube video. “‘Dear Fat People’ is an unfunny and cruel fat-shaming video that guises itself about being about ‘health,’” Mills told People. “It’s fat-phobic and awful.
