Marlee Matlin Blasts CBS for Not Showing ASL Performers at Super Bowl: ‘Absolutely Shocked’


Oscar winner and Deaf actor Marlee Matlin expressed her frustration with CBS for not showing ASL performers during the Super Bowl.

Deaf artists Anjel Piñero, Shaheem Sanchez and Daniel Durant were set to perform ASL during this year’s Super Bowl — but viewers watching the CBS telecast may not have actually seen them on air. “I am absolutely SHOCKED at CBS for introducing the Deaf performers at today’s pregame #SuperBowl and then not showing even one second (or more) of their performance… as has been tradition for the last 30 years. Matlin appeared on Super Bowl XXVII in 1993, performing the National Anthem in ASL alongside Garth Brooks.
