Nicole Arbour, the YouTube star who was slammed on social media over her video “Dear Fat People,” has lost a gig as choreographer on feature film Don’t Talk To Irene.
Director Pat Mills said that he’d wanted to work with Arbour because she “was fun and nice and had a lot of energy.” But after Mills watched Arbour’s fat shaming video, he decided to pass:

“I was supposed to get together with her this week for what she called a ‘choreo party’ to watch my favorite dance scenes and talk ideas. And then a crazy thing happened on Saturday — I saw something on the Internet that made me never want to see her again.” Mills, who is gay and says he was bullied as a child, had a strong reaction to the video: “[‘Dear Fat People’] is an unfunny and cruel fat-shaming video that guises itself about being about ‘health’. It’s fat phobic and awful. It went on for over for six minutes. I felt like I had been punched in the gut. I was so upset I was shaking like Shelley DuVall in ‘The Shining’.” h/t somecards
Ironically, Don’t Talk To Irene, is about a bullied high school student learning to feel awesome about herself.
Arbour has denied she was ever considered for the flick.
