In the video, Arbour criticizes people who are overweight and those who say being overweight is a disease. The controversial video went viral as thousands spoke out against it, saying things like "Fat shaming is not funny" and "Stop fat shaming."
Some even made emotional YouTube response videos calling Arbour a bully.

Afterward, Arbour's YouTube account was disabled. Whether it was YouTube or Arbour who disabled it is still unclear. However, she claims she was censored.
But considering the amount of push back she got from viewers, it's entirely possible they had the video taken down.
"Content that violates our policies can include bullying, hate speech, graphic violence or sexually explicit content."
And some video responses called for viewers to sign a petition by liking and sharing their video to get YouTube's attention to take down Arbour's video.

Arbour's YouTube account went back online Sunday night without her videos. Google has yet to comment on the situation.
