A Hearing Blooper

The trend #FOREHEADPEACESIGN emerged online in the hearing world in the 2010s(?). Deaf people found this trend amusing, because the symbol reminds them of the ASL word STUPID; hence, one cannot help but see it as #IAMSTUPID.

Though, this PEACE/STUPID blunder, err, blooper seems to be short-lived.
