Fat-Shaming Comedian Has Her YouTube Account Shut Down

YouTube temporarily suspended comedian Nicole Arbour's channel, after she posted a video aimed at "fat people".

This past weekend, YouTube took a stance against fat-shaming.

When comedian Nicole Arbour shared a six-minute video rant titled "Dear Fat People", the online community were quick to voice their disapproval of Nicole's remarks. YouTube reacted, temporarily shutting down Nicole's YouTube channel.

Nicole launches the video by saying, "Fat-shaming is not a thing. Fat people made that up." From there, Nicole shares a series of bad jokes and typical stereotypes made against the fuller-figured.
