Influencer Going Out In Public With Painted Mask On Face

Two influencers in Bali, Indonesia have had their passports seized after attempting a tasteless Covid-inspired prank.

One of them painted on a face mask while visiting a local supermarket for what appears to be for the sake of content. Being maskless in public is in violation of the province’s mandatory mask rule.

The video uploaded by Taiwanese-American prankster Josh Paler Lin on Facebook on 16 April, showed him and his girlfriend, a Russian influencer Leia Se, trying to enter a local supermarket before a security guard turned them down because Lisha was not wearing a mask. The two returned to their car where Josh proceeds to paint a mask on Lisha’s face.

Later, they then returned to the supermarket ⁠— Josh using a proper physical mask ⁠— and filmed themselves as they surfed the aisles of the store. Unfortunately, the stunt didn’t go down well as netizens lambasted the pair for making light of the Covid-19 situation in the country, which has seen 1.63 million cases and left over 44,000 dead. 

As of April 13, Indonesia has a total of 10 districts and cities located within red zones — areas with high risks of transmission — five of which are within Bali itself.

In a bid to curb the spread of the virus, Bali has a mandatory mask rule. Failure to comply would result in a fine of IDR1 million (S$91) for first-time offences. Repeat offenders may be subjected to being deported.
