You probably didn't know who Nicole Arbour was before this past week, and you aren't alone if you wish you wouldn't have heard of her at all. The YouTuber who identifies herself as a comedian created a horrible, offense video entitled "Dear Fat People" that sparked server backlash from a lot of the YouTube community and YouTube fans. Now, it seems that someone else doesn't appreciate her hateful brand of humor: her boss.

Arbour was fired from an upcoming film that she was working on as the choreographer, according to People magazine.

A somewhat talented choreographer, she has worked with the Toronto Argonauts cheerleaders and now was working on choreographing an anti-bullying dance film entitled "Don't Talk to Irene." However, considering she is probably a bigger bully than the people in the video, the director decided to fire her.

However, not without some parting words of his own.

Director Pat Mills saw Arbour's video and was absolutely disgusted with what he saw and the woman he hired. He said that the video "made me never want to see her again."

"I was supposed to get together with her this week for what she called a 'chore party' to watch my favorite dance scenes and talk ideas," Mills said to reporters. However, after seeing the video, he changed his mind about employing her.

“‘Dear Fat People' is an unfunny and cruel fat-shaming video that guises itself about being about 'health,' “Mills said. ”It's fat-phobic and awful. It went on for over six minutes. I felt like I had been punched in the gut."

Many YouTubers who have had problems with weight, like Grace Helbig, and those who stand up for body positivity, like Trisha Paytas, have said that they were triggered by the unfunny video. Many compared her to an "offensive and unfunny version of Jenna Marbles." Chrissy Teigen also called out Arbour about the video, saying "There is such a thing as fat shaming."

Mills was also triggered by the content.

"I'm gay. I was bullied a lot as a kid," Mills added. "I am no stranger to ridicule and loneliness."

Arbour isn't helping out her negative reputation, she refuses to apologize for the video and said, "I feel it's really important that we make fun of everybody. I think [what] brings us together and unites us as people is that we can poke fun at all of us."

She is also denying that she got fired from her last job, saying: "I'm not currently, nor have I been attached to any feature films as of late."
