Airline Provided a Wheelchair Because He’s Deaf, Says Nyle DiMarco



Actor and deaf activist says “Apparently being deaf at an airport means I need a wheelchair.”

Model and actor Nyle DiMarco, who happens to be deaf, documented an airline inexplicably presenting him with a wheelchair at an airport on Tuesday, Yahoo Finance reports.

The winner of reality competitions Dancing With the Stars and America’s Next Top Model said he hadn’t requested the chair.

Delta, the airline in question, told Yahoo Entertainment, “Delta apologizes for a miscommunication that resulted in this customer being offered a wheelchair upon deplaning.”

The company said it was working with the wheelchair vendor to figure out how the mistake had happened.

Delta also apologized to DiMarco on Twitter.
