TOWIE’s Amber Dowding angered her fans when she posted a sneak-peek of her Halloween costume, the main feature being slit wrists.
The 23-year-old posted the picture to Instagram and some followers were NOT happy.
She posed with her arms above her head, revealing the bloody gashes to her wrists and throat.
The special-effects make-up was part of a prisoner outfit, and the cuts were due to the handcuffs, but because the rest of her costume wasn’t visible, fans were furious.
One wrote: “When you’ve lost someone that’s taken their own life this sort of thing is not right.”
“This is an absolutely disgusting thing to do,” one fan added.
Another said: “Mental illness isn’t a Halloween costume… very insensitive of you.”
A furious fan lashed out: “This is f****d up!”
Amber was forced to apologise, she responded: “I am sorry if I have upset anyone.
“As you will see in my next picture I am a prisoner and they are cuts from the handcuffs.”
Although she revealed her full costume, some followers were still not satisfied.
One commented: “So insensitive having the wrists cut, regardless if it’s from the handcuffs.”
Another added: “Still inappropriate.”
Amber’s full costume included a black and white mini dress resembling a prisoner’s outfit, with a pair of lace-up gladiator sandals as well as accessorising with the handcuffs.
We thought Halloween was supposed to be scary? Pfft!
