American travellers Kelly and Kody, who post on Instagram under their account Positravelty, are not new to controversy.

The influencer couple regularly posts stunning shots of themselves on their travels.

In the past, however, theyve received criticism over their dangerous pictures, such as one where they can be seen kissing at the edge of a mountain-high infinity pool.

Not scared of heights, Kelly and Kody have been pictured once again, dangling at the edge of high terrains.

The couple has been called attention-seeking for hanging off the edge of a cliff in the Humantay Lagoon in Peru.

In the risky image, Kody can be seen sitting on the corner of a cliff while holding his girlfriend with his hands as she dangles off the side.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, they said: We absolutely love this photo from our adventures in Peru, and we are so thankful for all the positive messages we have received.

Couple criticised for insta pic hanging off a cliff An attention-grabbing couple has been blasted online for sharing a ?dangerous? photo of themselves dangling off a cliff in a desperate bid for Instagram fame. American travel bloggers Kelly Castille, 33, and Kody Workman, 32, uploaded a photo of themselves precariously posing above the Humantay Lagoon in Peru. While Kody sits with his legs hanging off the edge of a cliff, his daring girlfriend holds his hands and places one foot on the rock as she dangles off the side. The influencers ? who share the account Positravelty ? then urged their 162,000 followers to ?push past negativity? in their own lives in the caption of the image. ?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?,? they wrote. Unsurprisingly, the ?dangerous? image sparked fierce debate among the couple?s followers who argued that they were ?promoting stupidity.? In response to the couple encouraging their followers to be ?brave? and face their fears, one replied: ?Brave? Brave is going out to fight war. Not this. ?What if she slipped and died? Would you still be calling her brave? Think about what you?re trying to influence here guys.? ?It?s all about attention seeking. Gives us nothing about the country they are traveling in. A real travel blogger/Instagram account is about the place, not yourselves,? another added. ?Don?t forget to upload pics in your full body cast later too!,? a third joked. ?Promoting stupidity by wrapping it up in a pretty picture,? another argued. While others disapproved of the fact that it was Castille putting herself in harm?s way, the travel blogger insisted that the dangerous shot was her idea. ?Maybe because I make my own decisions and wanted to take this shot,? she replied. But not everyone was so critical of the couple ? with many recognizing that taking a heart-stopping image is part of their job. ?Who care if they want to take pictures like that,? one argued. ?They aren?t children, they can make their own decisions.? ?I wouldn?t do it myself but that?s no reason to criticize,? another responded. ?This is no different than skydiving, parkour or speaking on stage. Everyone has different skillsets and risk tolerances.? This isn?t the first time the couple has sparked outrage for their risky shots. Back in April, the couple were branded ?stupid? by followers for dangling off a 40-f00t infinity pool in Bali ? but have since gained 100,000 more followers. Similarly to their latest snap, Kelly is the one hanging off the edge of the pool and clings on to her boyfriend before leaning in to kiss him. The glamorous couple defended their actions at the time and insisted they were ?super slow and cautious? while performing the stunt. In response to a slew of negative comments branding the picture ?stupid? and ?irresponsible,? the pair hit back, saying they are ?full of trust for each other.? ?It was a blast setting this up. Kody had a very good hold of me. We trust each other entirely,? Castille said. ?It was such an amazing feeling to have this come out exactly as we planned. We are safe and sound.?

Kelly and Kody, who are currently travelling through the Dominican Republic, regularly post high-risk travel pics with inspirational captions.

They captioned the lagoon image with: We urge you to take a chance, to push past barriers of negativity and oppression of self-fulfillment and paint the picture of who you want to be.

Never let yourself be beat down for living your life by those too afraid to live their own. There is a difference between risking your life and taking a risk at having one. We know Read More – Source
