Australian Ninja Warrior SLAMMED Following One Moment
He was the contestant who was disqualified from Australian Ninja Warrior on Sunday night and viewers have been left furious by the decision.
Paul Cashion is a Brisbane-based cabinet maker, who is deaf, and delivered the show’s most heartbreaking moment when he was knocked out of the commotion after his foot touched the water on the first obstacle.
Really poor form by the producers of Australian Ninja Warrior to not explain the rules of competition to a deaf contestant! #aussieninja— Dürkõ (@ouninpohja4661) July 16, 2017
However, the verdict took a while to reach Paul, considering he could not hear the buzzer, with his stepson Josh telling him via sign language on the sidelines after eventually gaining his attention.
Fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration with one saying'Why would you focus on a deaf guy not hearing his disqualification? F***ing channel 9.’
'You cruel b***ards, should've given the poor deaf bloke another chance,' one complained.
Why do people want the deaf guy on ninja warrior to get another chance just because he didn't hear the siren? He still hit the water.— × molly × (@xmollyyx) July 16, 2017
'Are you for real, that was the most unwatchable piece of television I've ever tuned in for,' added another.
We hope he gets a second chance!
We will find out tonight at 7:30PM on Channel Nine.
