YouTuber Goes On Fat Shaming Rant (VIDEO)

In The Young Turks on YouTube by Hlarson1 Comment


Nicole Arbour is a comedian on YouTube and recently she created what she calls the most hated video on YouTube. The video is titled “Dear Fat People” and in it she “jokes” about obese persons in what she claims is a satirical piece. She has received a lot of backlash even from fellow YouTubers who accuse her of the very thing she is denying: fat shaming. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

Do you think Nicole Arbour has a point or is she just doing this for publicity? Is the video even funny to you? Let us know in the comments below.

“Comedian Nicole Arbour uploaded a video to YouTube on Friday titled “Dear Fat People.” The video, which shows Arbour joking about obese people, struck a chord with many on the internet.

Since being posted, the video has amassed more than 17 million views on Facebook and more than half a million views on YouTube.

Soon after being uploaded, Arbour’s YouTube channel, as well as the videos she’d created, was suspended. She took to Twitter to say that she’d been censored for her comedy.”


  1. Don’t even need to watch the vid to comment on this – doesn’t matter if I think it’s funny – doesn’t matter if it offends – doesn’t matter if it is insulting or off-color. The only thing that matters is this – Freedom of speech means exactly that – freedom to speak and more fundamentally, the freedom to express yourself which AT THE VERY HEART has the idea of challenging the status quo and the establishment. That is EXACTLY what the Framers intended. This can take the form of political discourse\debate, satire, fiction, humor, drama, investigative journalism, etc. – whatever the method, it’s all allowed. Furthermore, one need not even do a good job at expressing themselves because first, self-expression is almost wholly subjective and second, there is no bar to meet in order to justify or validate one’s right to enjoy this freedom. Said another way, a person can self-express with a certain intent which may make zero sense to literally all others on the planet – well, tough shit – doesn’t matter. The right to self-express is what exists – not the mandate to self-express subject to the consent and approval of others.

    People need to stop fucking worrying about what she’s saying and instead respect her right to say it. We used to universally understand this very basic idea in Gool Ol’ USA but somewhere along the line, it got lost…likely as an unintended consequence of the many fights undertaken in the name of equality…but that’s a whole other discussion.

    You folks adopted the moniker TYT for a reason (or so I thought) which is to stand upon that very same precept of challenging authority and the status quo. Well, guess what TYT – the “neo” status quo is this bullshit mentality that being nice and not being insulted is mandatory and part of the American experience. B-to the-U-to the-double L-to the-SHITE. Bottom line – if you don’t like what someone is saying, then make a counter argument or exercise your individual choice to not listen. But never does one have the right to tell another how to express themselves – PERIOD.
