LAS VEGAS, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Las Vegas tourism officials are criticizing whoever released nude photos of British Prince Harry for violating the "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" code.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority's latest ad campaign wags a stern finger in the direction of the unknown person who leaked pictures of the prince with a nude female companion after a game of strip billiards for violating the city's slogan, USA Today reported Friday.
"For Shame! To those who traded in their pledge to their Las Vegas brethren, WE DEPLORE YOU," the ad reads. "We are calling on you, the defenders of what happens in Vegas staying in its rightful place -- in Vegas. We are asking for a shun on those exploiters of Prince Harry. We shall boycott partying with (whoever exploited Harry). No bottle service. No bikini clad girls."
The ad urges potential visitors to go to VisitLasVegas.com/knowthecode to familiarize themselves with the city's partying protocols.
"Las Vegas is about adult freedom," LCVA spokeswoman Courtney Fitzgerald said. "It's important for friends to know what activities can be shared publicly and what activities are protected by the code."
