Two Aberdeen Medicine students dressed up as Orthodox Jews for a night out
They’ve been branded ‘disgusting’
Two Aberdeen students have been branded "disgusting" after dressing up as Orthodox Jews for a Medical Society night out.
A photo of the pair wearing black hats and false beards was uploaded to the groups Facebook page this month but was soon taken down after backlash.
One "disgusted" student told The Daily Record: "When I saw the photo, my jaw dropped. God only knows what a Jewish person would make of it. I was tempted to call the police. They are just a bunch of out of control yobs."

The students were referred to a "fitness to practice" watchdog after their antics left guests feeling intimidated.
In response to the offensive dressing up incident this month, the Medical Society said: "MedSoc is extremely disappointed to learn that a small number of students at our event may have caused offence or upset.
"We will not support anti-social behaviour and concerns raised will be discussed with the students involved".
A spokeswoman for Aberdeen University said the university is "extremely disappointed" by the behaviour.
The spokeswoman also said that the university would be following the General Medical Council requirements for medical students in the disciplinary process.

Yesterday, a new report revealed nearly 29 per cent of black students, 27 per cent of Asian students, and 22 per cent of other/mixed students had experienced racial harassment while at uni.
