"So you'll pay attention to deaf rights!"

Nyle DiMarco is getting frisky for deaf rights!

The sexually fluid America's Next Top Model winner appeared on last night's episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee to chat about policy brutality among the deaf and hard of hearing community. 

In a parody of an instructional video for cadets-in-training, DiMarco brings awareness to police mistreatment of deaf people in the U.S, where countless deaf and hard of hearing people have been tased, brutalized, and even killed because of misunderstandings.  

Bee and DiMarco are out to change that.

"Your training has barely covered the importance of how to interact with America's one million deaf citizens," begins DiMarco.  

Bee chimes in, "And it turns out you've been making tons of terrible mistakes."

There might be a laugh track, but it's definitely not a laughing matter. The duo goes through the steps police must take when interacting with this community to prevent repeats of the past's atrocities, including pro-tips like "Sign Language Is Not A Threat" and "Don't Ask Deaf People To Lip Read."

A few minutes in to the video, DiMarco announces his segment "Nyle Takes His Shirt Off So You'll Pay Attention to Deaf Rights."

We're certainly paying attention now!

But with the thirst traps comes the fact that 50% of all people killed by police officers have disabilities and the tragic story of a deaf man beaten to death by cackling police officers who were cleared of all charges. 

Perhaps they really should show this clip in police academy classes...
