    Long story short.

    During the funeral some fella was translating to the sign language. He stood right next to the most influential world leaders, such as Barak Obama - people whose security costs billion of dollars a year. After the funeral he was discovered as a fraud. No one knew how he got there, and what his signs meant. Moreover, he himself didnt know what his signs meant.

    Yep, after the funeral he was found and questioned. As his story goes: "the Angels at the funeral were distracting him" and this is why he got the translation wrong. Once the local authorities dug his criminal record, they discovered that previously he was accused at rape, theft, kidnapping and murder.

    He released a press statement claiming that he is a patient of Schizophrenia, and he was under an attack on stage, so he just kept doing shit without panicking, fearing all the gun totting guards around him. Don't know if all this is true..

    He who laughs last, laughs longest.
    I didn't watch this live but now that I've seen the video, it is rather funny.

    Anyone who has seen sign language before should have noticed that he is making shit up in repeating patterns.

    Foolish if anything.

    There is footage or picture of him interpreting for the president of some country before.
    Not sure if it's legit or not though.
