Vlogger Nicole Arbour, she of "Dear Fat People" fame, tweeted that Alan Thicke "grabbed [her] ass then gave [her] his hotel room key" less than 24 hours after it was reported that Thicke had passed away from a heart attack. She added, "TV Dad doesn't mean a good guy." Arbour has since deleted the tweet, but the folks over at The Hollywood Reporter got a screenshot while it was still up.

Sexual harassment is a very complicated subject, and it's hard to not to let my general dislike of Nicole Arbour get in the way of assessing the appropriateness of her tweet, but at least we can all agree that she's an awful, horrible (and totally unfunny) human.

Whether or not her statement is true can't be proved. I'm inclined to believe women when they say things like this, but her timing is, as Donald Trump would say, "not nice." While Thicke's family, friends, and fans are mourning his surprising and sudden death, Nicole Arbour chose to announce to her 84,000 Twitter followers that the man had once touched her inappropriately. Okay, Nicole, but you know what? He's probably not going to be doing that again any time soon, so maybe don't announce right after he's died. Also, you spelled his name wrong.

Ah, well. Stay classy, Nicole Arbour.
