Everybody have now heard WAP By Cardi B And Megan Thee Stallion With its loud, sexy bassline, and porn-friendly lyrics, you’ve probably heard it. But have you ever seen it being interpreted in sign languages?
The video shows how @kelly4access interprets WAP’s explicit lyrics into simple sign language interpretations at a Megan Thee Stallion concert.
You can watch the talent yourself.
It’s even more impressive that @kelly4access uses her newfound internet fame to promote the work Deaf ASL teachers/interpreters of colour. You are a true fkn queen.
Kelly posted to Instagram, “If this is your first time to my page, you’ll quickly realize that it’s a space meant amplify Deaf creators’ work and to provide social media content to the Deaf Community.”
“I’m a hearing interlocutor so I don’t teach.”
“Support Deaf creators. These pages can help you understand why Deaf people and hard-of-hearing people go to concerts. An interpreter should not be a surprise at a concert. A deaf interpreter should be on every tour with all artists.
@kelly4access shared her own interpretation of the video music in 2020. She gallivanted through the WAP House and gave the lyrics a new life with a sign-language interpretation.
Megan Thee Stallion was sure to see this video, and now @kelly4access seems to be working alongside her.
You should watch this video. It is truly amazing.
Follow and support ASL interpreters (if you are a fan), and keep stupid questions to yourself.
