Washington Post: Fake sign language is spreading on TikTok. Deaf people are worried.. “Anthony Eagle Jr. is big on TikTok. He boasts over 850,000 followers, many of whom love the way he performs sign language renditions of songs. There’s just one problem — the sign language is sometimes wrong. When Eagle, 39, of Winston-Salem, N.C., signs the song, ‘Love the Way You Lie,’ his rendition is riddled with mistakes, like signing the word ‘lie’ with two hands in the wrong position. To a deaf person who uses sign language, it looks like gibberish.”
