The My Hero Project - Lou Ferrigno
Lisa Lampanelli tweeted this: “Lou isn’t deaf. His ears are just stupider than the rest of him.” .. <-- that is supposed to be funny?! I sort of recognized her but had never seen her act or knew her name. I hope she crawls back under the rock she came from, that is, if the rock will have her. She must have her fans, but I don't get that kind of humor.Lou was born on November 9, 1951, in Brooklyn, New York. Lou suffered an ear infection, which was not treated well. He lost 85% of his hearing ability, which caused him to become deaf. At school or other places he was called “dumb Louie” as a kid. During his childhood many people would pick on Lou, and he went through merciless taunts and beatings. Lou was upset because he knew that he was mostly deaf, but this did not lead him to live a disadvantaged life.
