Travel influencers have been slammed in the past for daring stunts.
The latest bloggers to be criticised for a risky move are American travellers Kelly and Kody, who post on Instagram under their account Positravelty.
The couple, now based in Bali, Indonesia, shared an image from an infinity pool at the Kayon Jungle Resort in Ubud.
In the image, Kelly could be seen hanging from the edge of the pool while being held up only by Kodys arms as they kissed.
They claimed that they posed for the picture to show the trust they had in each other. The duo also said they had been slow and cautious in creating the shot.
But many felt that Kelly being suspended in the air on the side of the high pool was dangerous and could inspire copycat acts.
It was a blast setting this up, Kelly wrote on the account. Kody had a very good hold of me. We trust each other entirely. It was such an amazing feeling to have this come out exactly as we planned. We are safe and sound.
Instagrammers left hundreds of comments saying it was brave but risky. One person wrote: Dangerous but I love this one.
While another said: Fantastic photo, its one that takes your breath away looking at it.
However, as influencers, I think you ought to be more careful of what you post, some readers might skip over your caption and aspire to replicate what you have done, and in the process, unfortunately, put themselves in immense risk.
Other responses werent so measured: Its your life but if you choose to be a freaking blogger and inspire people, maybe dont create dangerous content like this, they said.
