The 26-year-old activist and model signed in his vlog about what the package showed and what he really feels.
“So much happened in our [mine and Peta Murgatroyd] package this past Monday on the live show, and I feel like it was kind of a negative perspective of me,” Nyle shared. “It showed me as kind of being arrogant and cocky, and that’s not who I am.”
He added, “It was so hard for me to say anything because I was misperceived. And being deaf and also being a minority, I have a huge responsibility to represent the deaf community well. And, on top of that, I also have my own foundation and I’m the face of that foundation and I can’t have that image.”
