One might think that their outfits would have attracted negative attention when they went out wearing them on October 30th, but what actually transpired was the pair winning the costume contest in local nightclub Rosies.

However, since the event last week, feeling towards the girls has been less than warm with many people using Twitter to express their disgust.

However, much of the anger was directed at the nightclub itself.

Both of the girls, as well as the nightclub, have now deactivated their Twitter accounts.

According to The Sun, Amber’s father is a pilot and he is not at all happy about his daughter’s behaviour.  He says they’ll be having a ‘little chat’.

As for the Nightclub, their owners have claimed that what happened was…

…a serious error of judgement made on the evening by a contracted DJ to award such a prize.

Apparently a full investigation is taking place.  The girls themselves say they ‘never meant to be offensive’.
