James was immediately slammed for his comment, with one writing: "Let’s hope you never have children with special needs!"

Another added: "As a parent of a child with a disability these types of comments are often said to mock a person’s disability and are hugely offensive, experience first hand the struggles and pain of a disabled person or be a family member who hears comments relating to a person they love it’s heartbreaking.

"So I will happily be on the pc brigade, defending my child and others with disability."

A third wrote: "Wow James, excelled yourself here, this certainly isn’t ‘banter central’ and no I’m not a snowflake, just think this is a horrible comment."
