This prank has disastrous consequences for two influential people! Josh Baller Lynn, 32, and Lea C. recorded a video at a Bali grocery store a week ago. A young man from Taiwan shows himself in a blue mask. His Russian teammate appears to be wearing one, too. But appearances can be deceiving. Because the protection of the mouth and nose is only painted!
Previously, the security forces refused the two because the young woman was not wearing a mask. So the two quickly picked up the paint and returned to the shop a few minutes later.
Nobody notices the dizziness
At first no one noticed the dizziness. Not even the security guard at the entrance. “No one noticed,” Lin said, visibly amazed in front of the camera. “I can’t believe this will work!” He says, while she laughs beside him and tries to keep her lips closed so that she is not exposed.
After a while, another customer approaches the YouTuber. In disbelief, she asks, “Did he apply her mask?” The festival first tries to make the woman think the mask is too real before admitting to their deception.
Confiscation of passports
The video spread online and the government became aware of the two. Now the two are reportedly facing deportation CNN. Indonesia has strict mask requirements. The police can impose fines for the first offense and deport foreigners for the second offense.
Although this was Lin and Se’s first known misdemeanor, the hype surrounding the video attracted so much attention that even archaic authorities confiscated their passports. Police said Lin is from Taiwan but lives in the United States, while Si is a Russian citizen. A government spokesman confirmed to local media that the immigration department is now investigating the case.
Sorry video recording
The woman and the man are now doing everything they can to prevent their deportation.
Lynn posted another video on Instagram two days later. You can see the two bloggers and their lawyers. “We want to apologize for the video,” the two said on camera.
She would not appear disrespectful, nor would she want to encourage others not to wear masks. The video was supposed to be “entertaining the people”. Lin said he was not aware that “this would generate a lot of negative comments.” “We promise never to do it again.”
Last year Indonesia made headlines due to strange sanctions against mask-rejecters. For example, mask-rejecters had to lie in a coffin for about a minute or dig graves for Corona victims. So far, more than 1.6 million cases of corona have been recorded in Indonesia. More than 45,000 people died. (a leg)
