Remember the fake South African sign language interpreter that just made up signs during Obama’s speech at Nelson Mandel’as memorial service HERE? Well another sign language interpreter has gone viral, but this time in the US at an Ebola conference. While it appeared that Jonathan Lamberton was faking it, he is actually legit and according to experts he did a great job. The general public though took to social media after thinking he was pretending.
He’s the guy on the left there.
While it does appear that his signs are unrelated to what’s being said, he is deaf and was translating a hearing interpreter’s ( a person sitting across from him) English sentences to ASL sentences.
