Nicole Arbour still bears no remorse over her fat-shaming viral video, while the co-hosts of The View have weighed in on her remarks...to her face.
The 30-year-old YouTube personality and self-proclaimed comedian appeared on the ABC show on Wednesday to talk about her expletive-filled "Dear Fat People" clip, which sparked controversy and cost her a movie role. The video has been watched more than 5.3 million times in two weeks, during which her YouTube account was suspended and then reinstated.
"You know, a lot of people were offended. Were you surprised?" Whoopi Goldberg asked Arbour, who cursed several times during the interview.
"Frankly, I'm the most offended, by my hair in that video," Arbour replied. "If I would have known it'd go viral...God."
"Babe, babe, babe, you're here, this is your shot," Goldberg said. "So, did you expect to offend people?"
"Yeah!" Arbour said. "One hundred percent. One hundred percent. That video was made to offend people just the way I do with all the other videos. It's just satire. I'm just being silly. I'm having a bit of fun and that's what we did and that topic was actually voted in by fans, some of them who are fat."
"I'm a comic, so if I'm gonna do a joke about a fat person, I'm gonna say, 'I'm fat' first," Joy Behar said. "You're not fat. That's the problem."
