Jumping onto Twitter, Jedward told their 664,000 followers: "Abolish the monarchy and give the people real democracy!"

Seeing their tweet on their screens, fans appeared rather outraged and responded in their droves.

One social media user wrote: "Abolish Jedward."

Another penned: "Any chance you two could just be quiet? It is not Ireland's place to call for the abolishment of the monarchy of another country. What about Andorra, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Sweden?"

A third said: "You might have noticed in the last day or so, our monarchy is the bed rock of our democracy, if you look through the hate in your eyes, see past and present politicians elected by the people agreeing to uphold the law , no one is being forced to sign anything , grow up lads."

Meanwhile another annoyed tweeter wrote: "If you knew anything about the government, politics and the monarchy, you’d know how profoundly stupid your tweet was. Stick to the day job buds."

In another separate tweet the brothers said: "King Charles should hand back the six Irish counties on his visit to Northern Ireland – No war! Just words! It’s time."
