Instagram influencers slammed for ‘bragging’ about luxurious lifestyle during coronavirus pandemic

Two travel bloggers who live in a three-story mansion in Bali were beaten up for “boasting” about their luxury lifestyle after reporting self-isolation.

Jack Morris, 29, from Manchester, and 26-year-old Australian, Lauren Bullen, met in Fiji in 2016 as they traveled the world.

They established roots in Canggu, Bali, bought a plot of land in 2018 and built their own dream home with three beds and five bathrooms.

INSTAGRAM INFLUENCES CLAMPED TO “INSENSITIVE” CONTENT DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

In the couple’s first snapshot since they closed earlier this week, Jack shared a picture of him playing Mario Kart in his stunning living room with floor to ceiling windows and trendy sunken couches on his side called “Do You Travel”.

“What our self-isolation looks like here in Bali,” he said. “Netflix and Mario Kart are pretty much my life right now! What do you guys do to be entertained at home? I hope everyone stays safe.”

But it wasn’t long before Jack’s 2.7 million followers battled it out and told him, “It could get worse, mate.”

One fan wrote, “Sick Brag,” while another said, “Wow, there are different levels of quarantine in the world.”

Lauren, who blogs as Gypsy Lust and has 2.1 million followers, previously said she would not be returning to Australia for lockdown as Jack would not be allowed to come with her.

“At the moment Indonesia (Bali in particular) is not locked, but the island is very quiet. Many people here choose to self-isolate to prevent a major outbreak (if they haven’t already),” she wrote.

Jack repeated her feelings on his own Instagram, writing, “Lauren and I try to stay in our mansion as much as possible and keep social distancing. It sucks, but when everyone does their part, it goes faster past.”

The couple’s stunning home features a huge pool adorned with white marble and surrounded by rice fields.

“The house took about a year to build and it was a lot of work. We wanted it to be photogenic so we could record content there,” Jack previously told The Cut.

The couple doesn’t make sponsored posts for less than $ 3,000, and Jack was once given $ 35,000 for two days of shooting.

Jack (who used to work as a carpet cleaner) and Lauren also make money selling their Lightroom filter presets to fans.

Jack previously told the Daily Mail that her entire house was paid for through sponsorship offers and branded content.
