Comedian and YouTube celebrity, Nicole Arbour , spoke her mind about obesity in a YouTube video titled, Dear Fat People and got her YouTube channel temporarily suspended on Saturday.

Arbour claims in her video that "fat-shaming is not a thing." The comedian suggested that fat people should park at the back of the mall to force them to walk and burn some calories.

Her video gained a half-million views before she got a notice from Google warning her YouTube channel was going to be disabled for its content. Arbour laughed it off and joked that she is the "first comedian in the history of YouTube to be censored."

She also laughed at the body positive movement on social media.

“If you want to be positive to your body, workout and eat well. That's being positive to your body," Arbour pointed out. She ended her video with the reason why she said those harsh words towards fat people: “I am saying this because your friends should be saying it to you.” She explained she was not referring to fat people who have special medical condition which caused their obesity. The YouTube channel was live again by Sunday. As of now, the video has well over 1 million views. In response to the fat-shaming jokes of Arbour, Whitney Way Thore of My Big Fat Fabulous Life said: “Fat-shaming is a thing; it’s a really big thing, no pun intended."

Thore who started the No Body Shame campaign explained that fat-shaming is a part of a more serious problem called body-shaming which every person has experienced. In her video, she asked people to be more understanding because nobody knows what that fat person is going through. She gained weight due to polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Arbour claims she is not affected by the controversy over her video or tweets, Monday.
