Dancing with the Stars and America’s Next Top Model champ Nyle DiMarco says he gets tons of requests for an ASL tutorial in bad words.
Since I started making tutorial videos I’ve gotten so many requests to do a bad words video. I think curse words are some of the first things a lot of people learn when they are studying a new language. It’s something every language has in common. ASL especially can be more discrete and it’s the first thing hearing people always want to learn! I try not to take myself too seriously and had a lot of fun shooting this.
I met the “sexually fluid” deaf model/actor a couple of years ago when he was the celebrity guest host at Chippendales in Las Vegas. All the dancers and staff at Chipps made a point to learn some ASL to make Nyle as comfortable as possible.
As I understand, the Chipps were very interested in learning new sign language all the time. I’m guessing some of these got taught backstage… 🙂
