Having seen the star's behaviour on stage, many people took to social media to express their shock.
One wrote on Twitter: 'John Lennon mocking the disabled is disturbing to say the least', while another, Patrick Doporto, added: 'That John Lennon clip was hard to watch.'
David Charles Bowen posted: '#johnlennon's distasteful learning disability impressions I saw on #itwasalrightinthe60s tonight would never have been OK.'
Another user said Lennon had a 'cruel "humour" about disabled people.'
Although adored by millions, the Beatles star also courted his fair share of controversy during a career spanning two decades.

In 1965 he was awarded the MBE along with the rest of the Beatles, but bragged later that he had smoked cannabis at the Palace. A year later he opined that the Beatles were ‘more popular than Jesus’, a comment which caused offence to the Christian faith.
It has also been claimed that Lennon was often 'briefed' by IRA sympathisers and even suggested playing a benefit concert for the IRA after Bloody Sunday in January 1972.
Then there was the bitter breakdown of Lennon's marriage to first wife Cynthia, which came to a head in February 1968 when he drunkenly confessed to sleeping with other women.
The musician was murdered by Mark Chapman in December 1980, aged 40, a decade after The Beatles had broken up and they had all gone onto other projects.
