A lot of people had something to say about comedian Nicole Arbour's controversial fat-shaming YouTube video; from plus-sized model Tess Holliday to YouTube star Grace Helbig, the Internet was ablaze with backlash. Arbour's account was even initially suspended by YouTube (it has since been restored). Now, Chrissy Teigen is weighing in, too — and she completely nailed it with her response.

Teigen had some choice words for Arbour, according to People. "Yes, Nicole, there is such a thing as fat-shaming, and you're doing it right now," she said. "The worst thing about about the Nicole Arbour thing is this has made her head even bigger somehow," Teigen continued. "On her Twitter and social media, she is living for this moment."
Teigen also said that even if the video is being criticized, Arbour is still coming out ahead. "We've just given her this platform to feel like her opinion does matter," she told People. "So, no matter if we're talking negatively about it or positively, she's winning."

And with that, Teigen gives us yet another reason to love her. Watch the video below to see the interview in full.
