THE disqualification of deaf Ninja Warrior contestant Paul Cashion has angered some viewers after his dream was ended on a technicality.

Cashion was disqualified on the first obstacle, where contestants have to hop from platform to platform across water, when his foot slipped in.

He made it across the obstacle but didn't hear the siren that signalled the end of his turn, moving on to the next challenge. He only realised his shot was over after his son, Josh, caught his attention and interpreted for him..

Cashion was gutted when he realised he was outed on a technicality.

Viewers voiced their displeasure over the incident on social media, calling for the show to give Cashion another chance.

Others called the show out on "disgraceful editing".

"I want all deaf people and all people with impairments to see me tonight and think that they can be on the show too," Cashion said before the challenge.

Viewers were shocked.
