YouTube personality Nicole Arbour recently came under fire for saying that fat-shaming is “not a thing” in a video titled “Dear Fat People,” and Chrissy Teigen responded to that claim in an interview with People Now: “Yes, Nicole, there is such a thing as fat-shaming,” she said, “and you’re doing it right now.”

Arbour’s received plenty of backlash for the video, which includes her joking about obesity for six minutes straight — and that attention she’s now getting is partly what bums Teigen out about the whole situation.

“We’ve just given her this platform to feel like her opinion does matter, and so no matter if we’re talking negatively about it or positively, she’s winning,” Teigan said. “So that’s the worst part about it. Also, why just be mean unnecessarily?”
