Most puzzlingly, the structure of his hand and body movements didn’t seem to change no matter what the speaker was saying.
And, in one of the most bizarre Deaf stories of recent years, it appears that there really was something wrong – because the interpreter was a fake.

Fairly outrageous, in fairness.
