Here's how this vlogger managed to piss off almost the entire internet

Nicole took fat-shaming to its limit.

IN THE WORLD of vlogging, every hit is a good hit. Nicole Arbour might disagree this week, after a video she named Dear Fat People, went extremely viral… due to it offending just about everyone.

My face when Security yells at me for playing Storage Wars in the locker area of my friends condo. Bi biddy bi, do I have one hundred? One hundred to you sir!! Now don't forget to pay the lady!! ALSO the same face I make when someone says HOLY SH*T NICOLE YOU HAVE 20,000,000 hearts on PERISCOPE!!!! ibnicolearbour ibnicolearbour

During the rant, the 30-year-old talks directly to obese people, claiming they should be ashamed of themselves and encouraged to stop their bad habits, instead of being given excuses.

The six minute video received over 18 million views since it was posted on Friday, with Arbour claiming that ‘fat-shaming is not a thing’.

Fat people made that up. That’s the race card with no race. Yeah, I couldn’t fit into a store, that’s discrimination. No, that means you’re too fat and you should stop eating.

Nicole goes on to say that fat shaming is actually a good thing, as it will shame people into stopping with bad eating habits, and is hoping to offend people so much that they lose weight.

Soon, there was outrage from all corners of the internet, especially within the vlogging community.

Nicole soon claimed she received a notice from Google, YouTube’s owner, claiming she had violated its terms, resulting in her whole account being shut down for a few days.

She took to Twitter to claim she was being censored

But many in the community claimed she had purposely set her videos as private

People aren’t happy with her

While others showed their support

Arbour told Buzzfeed that the backlash won’t stop her from discussing sensitive topics going forward and that she isn’t going to take what strangers on the internet say about her personally.

This was only an issue because this particular group wants to be immune to satire, while laughing at everyone else. We all need to relax, laugh at everyone, and learn to turn off something we don’t like, not try and wipe its existence.

Here’s why the internet can’t stop talking about a magazine called Oh My Vlog
