Queer model Nyle DiMarco appeared on Samantha Bee's "Full Frontal" this week for a segment called "Stop Doing That!" In which he takes off his shirt "so you'll pay attention to deaf rights."

The "America's Next Top Model" and "Dancing with the Stars" winner is deaf and has long promoted awareness for his community. For Bee's "Stop Doing That!" segment, DiMarco "demonstrate[s] how you can interact with deaf people peacefully."

"I would watch the shit out of that," Bee says.

In the clip, the duo share eps for how law enforcement can better interact with the deaf community.
