Fat-shaming YouTuber Nicole Arbour has been fired from a movie following her now infamous rant. Pat Mills, director of Don't Talk To Irene, explains the project as a "body positive teen dance movie."
"It's about a 16-year-old girl who dreams of being a cheerleader, but she is constantly bullied for being fat," Mills said. "She learns that she doesn't have to change anything about herself to be awesome because she already is."
In case you're not familiar with Arbour's now dwindling 15 minutes, the comedian posted a video entitled "Dear Fat People" to her YouTube account, in which she shames overweight people in classic sorority girl fashion.
The ignorant impressions and offensive narratives weren't enough to salvage a good laugh out of the YouTube community, and as a gay man, Mills cited his own childhood in his firm stance against Arbour's shaming.
"I'm gay. I was bullied a lot as a kid," he said. "I am no stranger to ridicule and loneliness."
Perhaps Arbour's faux pas will put an end to this generation's obsession with views, likes, and followers. It clearly accounts for nothing if you're just a horrible human being.
