You may remember Kelly Castille and Kody Workman, the couple who run a popular Instagram travel account that went viral in April after they posted a stunt photo that many deemed “dangerous.” The traveling couple is under fire again for a new post that many commenters deemed to be extremely hazardous.
Castille and Workman are the couple that makes up Positravelty, the Instagram account with over 161,000 followers that documents their exotic travels around the globe. The jet-setting pair from Louisiana and Michigan have been everywhere from Naked Island in the Philippines to Kelingking Beach in Indonesia to Nusa Penida off the coast of Bali to Pulo Cinta in the Maldives to Peru to Bolivia.
In their previous precarious Instagram stunt photo, Kody dangled Kelly outside of an infinity pool in Ubud, Bali. Some commenters called the photo “stupid” and “risky.”
Now the travel couple has shared a new perilous photo, this time Kody holding Kelly on a mountaintop overlooking Laguna Humantay, a lake in Peru.
The risky photo is captioned: “There is a difference between risking your life and taking a risk at having one. We know which side we would rather be on, do you?” I’d be more worried about the massive amount of pretentiousness in the caption collapsing on someone more than falling off the mountain into the lake.
The risky Instagram photo made many people nervous in the comments and several called the couple “stupid” for the stunt.
“As we have said in the past, photography is our creative outlet,” the couple told Fox News. “We have never put ourselves in danger for our photos and we never will.”
“As for safety, we are all responsible for ourselves at the end of the day. We are travelers, adventurers and above all, creatives. Life is about perspectives and it is important to review them all,” they continued. “As for the backlash… we know we were safe.”
“Our account is about creativity, photography, kindness, perspective, and above all… positivity. Whether a photo does well or not, whether it is perceived one way or another, is irrelevant to us,” they said.
One study found that between October 2011 and November 2017, there were 259 selfie deaths in the world. So be careful when you’re doing it for the Gram.
