Comedian Nicole Arbour claims that her “Dear Fat People” video, in which she railed against the role she says overweight people play in America’s obesity crisis, got her YouTube channel temporarily shut down.
“Fat-shaming is not a thing,” Arbour said. “Fat people made that up.” “There’s a race card,” she said. “There’s a disability card. There’s even a gay card, because gay people are discriminated against, wrongfully so. The gay card is covered in glitter.”
Arbour’s video attracted a half-million views before she says her entire YouTube channel was temporarily shut down on Saturday afternoon. Arbour, who said she received an email from Google, You Tube’s owner, warning her about violating its terms, claimed to be “the first comedian in the history of @YouTube to be #censored.”
YouTube did not respond to requests for comment.
By Sunday morning, the channel was back up.
In her six-minute rant exhorting overweight people to lose weight, Arbour acknowledged (loudly) that some people might have health issues that contribute to their weight but complained about sitting next to them on airplanes.
“If we offend you so much that you lose weight, I’m OK with that,” Arbour said. “I’ll sleep at night.”
Earlier, Arbour shut down the comments on her YouTube video, tweeting that it doesn’t mean she’s scared. “It means that I don’t give a f**k what u have 2 say.” See Video below.. It really does work, they took the main photo off…
