Nyle DiMarco Slams Jamie Foxx for Making Up Sign Language

Nyle DiMarco is speaking out to criticize Jamie Foxx for making up sign language during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The 28-year-old model, who won his seasons of America’s Next Top Model and Dancing With the Stars, is deaf and an advocate for those hard of hearing.

“.@iamjamiefoxx, It is straight up disrespectful to make up sign language. Everything is in gibberish,” Nyle tweeted.

While Jimmy was transitioning to the commercial, Jamie sat in his seat and made up random movements with his hands as if he was doing sign language.

“Also- @jimmyfallon @FallonTonight how was this allowed? Where’s the cultural sensitivity. Not comedy when you make fun of others,” Nyle added.
