Academy Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin criticized CBS for failing to show American Sign Language interpreters during the Super Bowl LVIII broadcast, breaking a 30-year tradition.

During the Super Bowl pregame show at Allegiant Stadium, ASL performers Daniel Durant, Anjel Piñero, and Shaheem Sanchez accompanied artists Andra Day, Post Malone, and Reba McEntire, respectively. Matlin expressed her shock on social media, highlighting the network's break from tradition in showcasing deaf performers. CBS did not provide a comment in response to the outcry, generating further discussion on the need for inclusive broadcasting practices.
