Swimming with sharks, dangling over cliffs - some influencers will do just about anything for the perfect 'gram, even if it means risking their life.
Thankfully, the latest Insta-couple facing criticism from the internet got their shot without getting hurt, but it was a pretty stupid move nonetheless.
Raquel and Miguel, the pair behind @explorerssaurus_, post romantic shots from their adventures all over the world. And while they certainly lead a photogenic lifestyle, it seems they occasionally take the posing too far. Like on February 19th, when they shared a death-defying Insta while on a moving train in Sri Lanka. As Miguel leans out of the carriage to plant a kiss on her forehead, Raquel holds on backwards, her entire body dangling out of the train. It appears they're also going over a ravine - one slip and they both could have fallen into the water below.
The post has since garnered over 43,000 likes (around double the amount they normally receive on photos), but the comments are full of social media scolding. In response to the backlash, the couple defended their actions by assuring people the train had been moving very slowly. We mean, at least they didn't try this on the subway.
