ASL interpreter warned about pizza, bears and monsters during Hurricane Irma briefing

ASL interpreter warned about pizza, bears and monsters during Hurricane Irma briefing

"It was horribly unnerving for me to watch that knowing that I could provide a qualified certified interpreter", said McCarthy.

Some of the signs used by the man in the video did appear to be sign language, but they mostly made no sense or were irrelevant to the message emergency officials were telling the public at the time. That's when they turned to county lifeguard Marshall Greene, who has some experience in sign language from communicating with his brother, who is deaf.

Nick Azzara, a spokesperson for Manatee County, told the Bradenton Herald that they asked Greene to sign during the briefing as opposed to having no interpreter at all.

She was shocked when she saw the press conference on television.

The former president of the National Association of the Deaf knew right off the bat that something wasn't right.

"Everybody was talking about it on social media, everyone was shocked, asking leaders in the deaf community to do something about it", he told local news channel WFLA.

Wagner said Greene also fell foul of basic good practice for interpreters by wearing a bright yellow shirt, thereby making his hands less visible to deaf viewers.

"I knew something went horribly wrong", VisCom's Charlene McCarthy said.

The person communicating via sign language always looks straight ahead when communicating the content of the press conference or event.

"It was obvious to me he wasn't a professional interpreter".

A sign language interpreter in Florida has been accused of using gibberish words and phrases during an emergency briefing on Hurricane Irma.

The interpreter's family said he just did what his bosses asked him to do.

Greene's family stuck up for him in the midst of the criticism, saying, "He can't expect to communicate something he doesn't know".

Meanwhile, the the deaf community is demanding an apology from the county, claiming this was way too unsafe and put lives at risk.
