London: A YouTube comedian has come under fire after she reportedly made too many jokes about fat people, the media reported on Tuesday.

Nicole Arbour's videos were temporarily removed from YouTube after thousands of people took offence at her blunt clip which told overweight people to exercise more and eat less, Mirror online reported.

Nicole also claimed that it is a good idea to "shame people who have bad habits until they stop".

In her video, titled Dear Fat People, Nicole said: "Fat shaming is not a thing. That's the race card, with no race.

"Are you going to tell a doctor they're being mean and fat shaming you when they tell you that you have heart disease?"

After the video was temporarily removed from YouTube, Nicole tweeted: "Wow, I'm the first comedian in the history of @YouTube to be #censored. There are graphic videos about murder and torture but satire is..."

Nicole's video is still being shared on Facebook where it has gained a whopping 20.1 million views.
