Sign Language Interpreter For ‘WAP’ Is Better Than The Actual Performance
| Last updated
A sign language interpreter has gone viral for her graphic interpretation of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's epic track 'WAP'.
For a song titled Wet A** P***y and is all about explicitly sexual acts and deeds, it's hardly surprising that the ASL translation would be just as filthy.
Megan took to the stage during the four-day American music festival Lollapalooza.
While she didn't have Cardi by her side, the rapper performed her part of 'WAP' on stage and everyone went wild.
However, one person was clearly more interested in the sign language interpreter trying to keep up with the dirty lyrics.
The female ASL interpreter completed the verses in perfect style, imitating performing fellatio on someone and also gave a whole lot of sass while doing it.
It was during the part in the song where Cardi sings 'I don't wanna spit, I wanna gulp/I wanna gag, I wanna choke/I want you to touch that little dangly dang/That swang in the back of my throat' that has been broadcast around the world.
The person who recored the video was so impressed with the interpreter's skills during such a graphic song.
"I was very surprised. I am very interested in music and how interpreters sign some music, especially rap and electronic music. Once I saw her on stage and WAP by Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B was playing I wanted to know how was she going to sign," Guilherme Senise said.
"I honestly have even more respect for her job now, because it is an opportunity for deaf people to enjoy the festival the same way as other people, they deserve to have fun and be included on these types of events as well."
The clip has gone absolutely viral on social media and everyone is thrilled with seeing the interpretation.
One person wrote: "I haven't heard this song and I don't speak sign language but I'm pretty sure this song is about eating burritos while wearing tight fitting underwear."
The interpreter is Kelly Kurdi and she has built up an impressive following for helping deaf people enjoy live music events.
She's thanked everyone for their epic praise of her performance on the side of the stage.
"Thanks for the love on my page from hearing people but I'm just an interpreter passionate about providing access to a community I love and have learned everything from," she wrote on Instagram.
"If you're still wondering why deaf and hard of hearing people go to concerts follow these pages and learn something new. Seeing an interpreter at a concert shouldn't be shocking. Seeing a deaf interpreter on tour with every artist should be the norm!"
She's called on organisers to ensure sign language interpreters are present at events of all shapes, sizes and types.
