After being called out by BIPOC advocates in the Deaf community, Deaf production and advertising company MSM Productions removed a poster showing a new dedicated sign language gesture for President Joe Biden that mimicked a racist symbol.

Sometimes the Deaf community will adopt new, shorthand signs for prominent political figures instead of spelling out their names.

For example, an “O” followed by a flag hand shape was adopted to represent former President Barack Obama. There have been attempts to give Biden a sign shorthand as well.
