Response to “Fake” Sign Language Interpreter Says He Suffered A Schizophrenic Attack During Mandela Memorial:
It is such a shame for the Deaf people who thought that they were going to have Mandela’s funeral interpreted for them in their language. Instead, someone made a mockery of their language and assumed that it didn’t matter whether the Deaf audience understood him or not. This is offensive to real sign language interpreters who have worked and trained very hard to learn how to interpret, as well as to Deaf people. This is disgusting.
