YouTube star Nicole Arbour won't be making the jump to movies thanks to her 'Dear Fat People' video.
This is what's known as "YouTube justice."
Nicole Arbour, the YouTuber who became Internet famous last week for yelling at fat people into her camera, is facing some consequences for her viral video. According to Zap2It, Arbour has lost a job as choreographer on the feature film Don't Talk To Irene. Director Pat Mills said that he'd wanted to work with Arbour because she "was fun and nice and had a lot of energy." But after Mills watched Arbour's "Dear Fat People," he decided not to work with her:
"I was supposed to get together with her this week for what she called a ‘choreo party’ to watch my favorite dance scenes and talk ideas. And then a crazy thing happened on Saturday — I saw something on the Internet that made me never want to see her again.”
Mills, who is gay and says he was bullied as a child, had a strong reaction to the video:
“[‘Dear Fat People’] is an unfunny and cruel fat-shaming video that guises itself about being about ‘health’. It’s fat phobic and awful. It went on for over for six minutes. I felt like I had been punched in the gut. I was so upset I was shaking like Shelley DuVall in ‘The Shining’.”
