Matthew Wright has sparked fury on Twitter after asking his followers "since when have Nazi outfits been a no no?"
The controversial question on the verified Twitter account came after the Sun today revealed a 10-year-old child was banned from his school's World War Two costume day for dressing up as Adolf Hitler.
A 10 year old boy was told to change when he turned up in Nazi uniform for a school’s WW2 day. Since when have Nazi outfits been a no no?— The Wright Stuff (@5WrightStuff) October 4, 2013
Unsurprisingly, the question raised a few eyebrows, with many taking to Twitter to answer the presenter's question:

The controversial presenter previously provoked the wrath of viewers of his show The Wright Stuff when he asked whether they would consider going back to Amanda Knox's room after meeting her in a bar.
Delivering a monologue to the camera, he said: "She's entirely innocent of the murder of Meredith Kercher and foxy as hell, so what I want to know this morning is: If you met Amanda Knox in a bar and she invited you back to her room - would ya?"
The Channel 5 website featured the tag line "Foxy Knoxy: Would Ya?" and read: "So Amanda Knox has been cleared of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher. She's entirely innocent. She's also undeniably fit and loves wild sex. Or did.
"So if you were a guy who'd met her in a bar and she invited you back to hers, would you go? I'm being quite serious. Or would something in your brain make you think twice?"
Wright has also been blasted by broadcasting watchdogs for making a tasteless joke about the alleged murder of a Scottish teenager.
The presenter sparked fury with a tasteless remark over the death o Liam Aitchison, 16, from the Isle of Lewis.
The presenter used a thick Scottish accent saying "There's been a murder" while discussing the case on his Channel 5 show The Wright Stuff.
