Dear Nicole Arbour:
Well, I have ZERO qualms about putting you on blast. None whatsoever.
I have this habit of surfing YouTube late at night. It's a good way to unwind at the end of the day. I randomly came across your recent video over the weekend (we both know which one I'm talking about here), and well, let's just say I'm sorry I did. I couldn't even watch it for two minutes before I quickly closed my browser window in sheer disgust. Anger doesn't even begin to describe the sort of rage I was feeling.
ARE YOU SERIOUS???
Honestly, I don't know if I should feel sorry for you, but something tells me that you knew exactly what you were doing by posting such a vile, blatantly horrific video. How pathetic is it to reduce people to numbers on a scale? And for what? The shock value? Oooh, like we haven't seen that shtick before. Maybe you get some sort of sadistic joy out of shaming people you don't even know. Maybe you thrive on that sort of negativity. Who knows?
Because what you're doing? It's bullying. You're a bully and you shame people in the worst possible way -- by judging them. Shaming isn't comedy. And it's never funny.
What about the girl in junior high who watches your videos and looks up to you? You know, the girl who already has that voice in her head -- the one who's constantly telling her she needs to lose weight, strive to be stick thin, dress a certain way, look a certain way, talk a certain way, act a certain way. She doesn't need another voice vying for her attention. After all, the last thing she needs is yet another distraction.
What can I say? I guess I don't have that much self-restraint... UN-xoxo
