Delta apologizes to deaf activist Nyle DiMarco for providing unnecessary wheelchair

Delta Air Lines is apologizing to model and deaf activist Nyle DiMarco, who wasn’t pleased when he was met at his airport gate with a wheelchair.

He walks just fine, thank you.

The “Dancing With the Stars” and “America’s Next Top Model” winner took to Twitter Tuesday to share a clip of a Delta employee meeting him with a wheelchair.

“Not a clear video but apparently being deaf at an airport means I need a wheelchair,” he tweeted. “Y’all should’ve seen the look on the guy’s face … he knew delta made a huge mistake.”

DiMarco’s tweets, which have thousands of likes and hundreds of retweets, got the airline’s attention on social media.
