Nyle DiMarco Says Delta Offered Him A Wheelchair Because He’s Deaf

December 19, 2018 / Posted by:

Nyle Dimarco, a stalwart and articulate advocate for the deaf community, was on a Delta flight and was surprised to find a gate employee waiting for him a wheelchair. Nyle is a perfectly bodied man, I mean perfectly able-bodied man who never seems to skip leg day at the gym. I know this because fairly recently (I’d say sometime around when Nyle won Cycle 22 of America’s Next Top Model) I have found myself spending a portion of my busy day looking at Nyle’s Instagram page. Believe me, his legs are foine. I mean fine. What I mean to say is, his legs work just fine.

I guess Delta must have been alerted that Nyle has some form of disability (though I doubt he sees it that way) and made a wild assumption about his needs. Apparently, the employee quickly realized their mistake, and thankfully, Nyle was very nice about it. Here’s how Nyle was greeted:

Personally, I think it was very presumptuous of Nyle to assume the chair was for him. Maybe Delta was bringing a whole fleet of wheelchairs for his fellow passengers who probably got weak in the knees from having been trapped in a tin can with his fine ass for several hours. Maybe it’s not all about you, Nyle! Maybe it’s about the effect your steely gaze and defined abdominal muscles have on other people.

I hope Delta takes this as a learning experience about making assumptions about people. But I’m not holding my breath. Here’s their lame response.

What’s his itinerary got to do with it? They clearly still don’t know who their dealing with. Hopefully Nyle can get them collected. He never was one to shy away from getting things off his chest. Pointless shirts, specifically!
