It's been reported that the Manchester University student's union has voted to ban clapping at the student union's events to avoid triggering issues for students and improve accessibility.
Students will instead be encouraged to use British Sign Language in a silent display of appreciation.
However political commentator Lindsay Perigo believes it is all just "virtue signaling".
Mr Perigo told Chris Lynch "They dress it up in all this talk about being inclusive and diverse, and appropriate and respectful. It's none of that, these people are just bigots who have acquired authority and this is their means of exercising it."
