The exclusive London Club, Mayfair, has..
ditched the idea of 'ebola' themed Halloween party after they came under fire by critics for being insensible.. The promoters have now re-branded the party theme from 'Saturday Night Ebola Fever' to 'Saturday Night Fever'.
The ebola themed party was being promoted by Mom& Dad Promoters at Scotch of St. James, a one time hangout for Rock stars like Sir Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix and Rod Stewart.
A flyer was sent out on their Facebook page, inviting over 800 people to the party with the word 'ebola' in a font style evoking old fashioned horror movies but the promoters soon took it down because of the flood of comments by critics.
A spokesperson for the promoters said that , they had intended to cancel the Nov.1 event but later choose to rename it and that they hope to raise 1,500 Pounds in donation to The Doctors Without Boarders Charity.
