A travel blogger was attacked on social media because he posed in a ‘dangerous’ stunt after he had a picture of himself hanging on a balcony of the hotel.
Jack Morris, born in Manchester and living in Bali with his Australian girlfriend Lauren Bullen, shared a snapshot on Instagram in Bangkok, Thailand to promote the new launch of his presets.
The photo shows the 29-year-old social media influencer – who has more than 2.7 million followers on @doyoutravel – sitting precariously above the ledge of a building.
But critics have responded by saying that he not only endangered his life, but that it was an irresponsible photo to share online, because copy-cats could be in great danger if they tried the same stunt.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Jack Morris for comments.
The photo, posted on his Instagram page on February 26, 2020, has since provoked a fierce debate in the comments section.
‘Not a good photo! Very dangerous. And with the number of followers you have, other people can copy without thinking about it. Very irresponsible of you to post this, “said a person.
Another said: “I have been to this hotel and I think you are just too dangerous and crazy there! Everything about social media. “
One said: “People will try to copy this and die. Bad example.’
Another person said: “What are you trying to advocate? Think before you do that. You do not need this “Coolness”. “
One said: ‘Ah not a good photo! Other people can repeat! It’s dangerous.’
And another said: “This is not a good influence. Love your life, children. ”
Others said they have not followed his page since then because of his “risky behavior.”

His photo hit a chord with a woman who revealed that she lost her girlfriend last year after trying to take a picture of herself, but eventually fell to her death from a vantage point along the Oregon coast.
“Don’t encourage others to be unsafe. They are often not as careful as you may be. Guaranteed that this is contrary to the safety regulations of the building. I had a childhood friend die early last year. She tried to take a picture and lost her balance, “the woman said.
Other followers begged the travel blogger not to take similar photos again, because he did not have to put his need for likes for his own safety.
‘Sir, please do not take these photos. You could fall, “someone said.
Another said: “Taking such a risk to take a picture is not worth it.”
And one said, “One way to get attention for your mail … but was it worth the high risk?”
It is unclear when the photo was taken, but Jack posted a similar snap on Instagram on February 4, 2019.

‘This is a beautiful photo and I love you two and your pages so much, but I have to say, I find this pretty irresponsible. So many people look at you for travel and photo inspiration and although you don’t immediately say “copy us”, many of your followers want the same exact photos, “a man said.
‘Doing something so dangerous will inspire people to do the same and they may not be as careful as you. Please be smart with the message you bring. Again, I absolutely love you – I just had to share what my heart is when I see these kinds of photos. ”
