An ‘Insta-famous’ couple from the Czech Republic has apologized after sharing footage of themselves inappropriately splashing holy water at a sacred temple in Bali, Indonesia.
Sabina Dolezalova posted a video on her Instagram page of her boyfriend Zdenek Slouka splashing the water, from a fountain at the Baji Temple in Ubud, on her backside.
We are so sorry about the video from yesterday. We dishonoured the holy temple and the holy water in Ubud,” they said, claiming they didn’t realise the temple or the water was holy.
Dr. Arya Wedakarna, a Balinese senator, shared the footage to his social media accounts on Monday to lambaste the couple for “abusing the temple.” Almost one thousand people commented on the senator’s post and called for the tourists to be banned from visiting Indonesia again due to their “unacceptable” and “insulting” behavior.
