So teens think Helen Keller was a fraud...https://t.co/kt6wesL9QJ— The Mary Sue (@TheMarySue) January 10, 2021
This seems to have started on, where else, Tik Tok, where teens are making consipracy videos about Helen Keller being an urban legend
The argument seems to be that a "real" deaf and blind person could not have done what Keller did
Screenwriter Daniel Kunka tweeted about his nieces and nephews believing it and a bunch of people tested it out with their own young relatives with similiar results in the replies
At first I thought they were trolling grandma, which is admittedly fun. But after awhile it was clear they weren't joking.— Daniel Kunka (@unikunka) January 5, 2021
"How could someone be deaf and blind and learn how to write books?" My nephew admits she probably existed but was probably only one or the other.
