Couple slammed for sharing nerve-shredding photo showing them leaning out of moving train for 'wildest kiss'
An Instagram couple has been slammed for taking a dangerous photograph while hanging off a moving train in Sri Lanka. The pair is seen leaning out of a blue train for a very risky kiss.
Instagram influencers Jean and Camille, who own the Insta handle 'BackpackDiariez', were traveling to Ella in Sri Lanka when they allegedly took the picture while the train was moving on a bridge through dense trees. It was Camille's brother who reportedly clicked the picture.
The Brussels-based couple captioned the image, "one of our wildest kisses", and shared it on their Instagram page last week.
The picture garnered around 40K likes within three days. The post was however criticized by fans who believed that the couple was promoting dangerous behavior. One such user commented saying, "And then they wonder why people die by trying to get similar pics..." Another user added, "It has nothing to do with wilderness, its pure stupidity. I hope no one will die trying to do the same but if this happens it will be all on you!"
One concerned social media user shared, "Are you really ready to die for a pic?" while another warned, "Seeing your other photos, you don't need to risk your lives to get a shot. Not worth it."
However, there were some people who loved the snap and also encouraged the couple. One user shared, "Omg! Amazing picture!!" Another user echoed, "Wonderful shot!"
There were also those who did not believe that the picture was real and a few called the picture fake. One user wrote, "This photo looks fake AF."
Camille and Jean's picture comes less than two months after another Instagram couple were slammed for a similar snap. Influencers Raquel and Miguel who are from Portugal were called "irresponsible" by fans for sharing their risky shot and video on social media.
However, they defended themselves and the controversial picture by claiming that the train was "moving super slow" and they "respect everyone’s opinions, but it’s not risky."
