The "Fat Child on Plane" Victim from Nicole Arbour's "Dear Fat People" Speaks Out

September 19, 2015 2 min read

While we have all either taken a side for or against comedian Nicole Arbour regarding her recent YouTube video, "Dear Fat People," there are still a lot of questions left up in the air, like whether or not some of her statements were directed at personal people. For one blogger, he claims that he was one of the subjects in Arbour's rant. nicole arbour In one portion of the video, Arbour tells the story of sitting next to "Jabba the kid" on a plane. Now, an anonymous writer on the blog Tony Posnanski has made the decision to announce that he was indeed the kid she was referring to for her story, and that the "fat family" she poked fun at was his. "Around 4 minutes and 30 seconds of your video, you talked about a very 'fat' child that you had to sit next to. He smelled like sausages, and you had to put the armrest down to separate the fat from your seat. Then you claimed you had to hold the fat with your hands while we were flying. And after that you looked at the child and said 'make better choices.' I was that child and that was my family," the writer stated. The boy, who has written about his struggle with his weight in the past, says that Arbour's judgement of him without even getting to know him was uncalled for. "You humiliated me by yelling and screaming about my weight.... You wanted to make me feel ashamed. You did not even know that on that day I hit my 10 pounds lost mark that day on the plane. I have and will always continue to struggle with my weight (but) I will never lose weight because of your horrible words. Congratulations on going viral. I am glad it came at the expense of making fun of my family… and me," he said. Do you think this writer makes a valid point? Source: Independent Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
