By now, you've certainly heard about Nicole Arbour's controversial YouTube video "Dear Fat People," which has people up in arms about whether this is funny or cruel. But while we're all still fighting over whether her remarks were pure bigotry or kind of true and sort of comical, Arbour is shaking her head and letting you know she's not about to apologize anytime soon. The video has generated almost three million views and has gone viral on social media. But as the star's fame rises, her reputation as a respectable comedian seems to be going down as other YouTube sensations, comedians and columnists shun her video. comedian nicole arbour But while many feel the video is sending a message of "fat shaming," the 30-year-old YouTube comedian is happy that she has been able to bring to the surface weight and body image concerns. Arbour, who has 159,000 YouTube subscribers said in a recent interview that the video is purely satire, and feels that those who think otherwise are simply missing the whole point. “I feel it’s really important that we make fun of everybody,” she told TIME. “I think [what] brings us together and unites us as people is that we can poke fun at all of us.” The comedian goes on to say, “I find seeing someone’s head being blown off offensive. I find children starving in a country with more than enough food offensive. I find women’s bodies being mutilated for religious purposes, that is offensive to me. But words and satire I don’t find offensive.” Nicole responds to the controversy in this video. What do you think of the video and the way that Arbour has responded to all of the controversy?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
