“Dear Fat People” YouTube Star Nicole Arbour Fired From Body-Positive Film

YouTube personality and “comedian” Nicole Arbour, who caught a shit ton of flack for her godawful “Dear Fat People” video, has been fired by the director for an anti-bullying dance film called “Don’t Talk to Irene,” for which she was supposed to be the choreographer. Pat Mills was prepping for a meeting with Arbour this week when he saw her YouTube video, and immediately concluded he “never wanted to see her again” because of how much her fat-shaming message was contrary to his own. ” ‘Dear Fat People’ is an unfunny and cruel fat-shaming video that guises itself about being about ‘health,’ ” Mills said. “It’s fat-phobic and awful. It went on for over six minutes. I felt like I had been punched in the gut.” Arbour, meanwhile, has weakly apologized for making the “Dear Fat People” video, though she’s still maintaining that she needs to make fun of everyone cause “comedy” or something.

#FlashbackFriday time! Remember when a sports blogger posts photos of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen and this naked toddler son on the beach, commenting on the size of the kid’s penis? And the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office received so many complaining calls that the cops were dispatched to the blogger’s home and forced him to remove it? Yeah. THAT HAPPENED. [Ratter]

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jewel said that she has been experiencing sexual harassment since she was as young as eight. “I had men putting dimes in my hands saying, ‘Call me. It’d be so great to f— when you’re older.’ And just horrible stuff.” #BANMENNNNNN. [THR]

According to a totally dubious source speaking to The Hollywood Life (aka the writer’s manicurist probably), Drake is only dating Serena Williams because he can’t have Nicki Minaj.

“Nicki thinks…that the only reason Drake’s with her is because he can’t have Nicki. Nicki’s just calling it like it is. Drake likes strong, powerful and intelligent women, who are thick with a big bubble butt. And since he can’t have the body goddess, Queen Nicki herself, he’s going after the next best thing.”

No real human being with actual knowledge of this “situation” would ever talk like this, also it is impossible to seriously rank Nicki or Serena’s bodies above or below the other, so I call bullshit. [The Hollywood Life]
