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.

Online users were quick to voice their distaste on Nicole's comments:
"It's not necessarily the video," Meghan Tonjes suggests in her video post. "It's just the mindset I find really upsetting, even if it's done for, like, satire or comedy, which this just isn't. I find it really harmful."
