The sign language interpreter who went viral for his good looks is finding work easier to come by now … thanks to celebs like Halle Berry.
Billy Sanders, now affectionately known as #ASLbae after signing for Mayor Muriel Bowser during the riots, tells TMZ … he’s getting tons of job requests — double his normal workload — with inquiries pouring in from all over the country and even overseas.
Billy says he’s tickled by all the attention he’s getting from Halle and a bunch of popular TikTokers … and he hopes the spotlight shining on him encourages more minorities to pursue careers as ASL interpreters.
Before his newfound fame, Billy was already pretty popular on the music scene … working concerts with go-go bands and Kirk Franklin before the pandemic. Now he’s getting hit up by hospitals, urgent care centers, non-profits, major conferences and even mental health facilities .. all of whom want a piece of Billy!
While Billy’s physical appearance is behind his viral fame, he says his job is more than just looking good on camera … and he wants to help young, Black men major in ASL in college.
