After facing severe backlash on the internet, the two social media stars Josh Paler Lin and Leia Se apologized for their act and said that it was just a prank to entertain their fans and followers. The two also removed the viral video after severe criticism.
As seen in the clip, Josh was seen wearing a mask while Leia’s mouth was painted with blue make-up both entered the supermarket and walked around.
One of the customers at the market, in fact, also asked Leia whether she was indeed wearing a real mask. Both were allowed inside the store since Leia’s paint mask at first glance appeared seemingly real.
Enraged over their act, a Balinese designer and politician, Niluh Djelantik posted “Your exclusive prank will not be so exclusive anymore.” In her post, she also tagged the Directorate-General of Immigration with the request to deport Josh and Leia.
