The video was widely shared by others too. It has given rise to a debate on tourism in Bali as tourists clearly don't understand and respect the place they are visiting at. A Balinese designer named Niluh Djelantik mentioned that Bali will drown if such ignorant tourists keep visiting.
As the couple received much abuse from everyone, they issued an apology stating they were unaware that it was a holy place. However, netizens refused to believe their claim. Slouka has said, "We are so sorry about the video from yesterday, we dishonored the holy temple and holy water in Ubud, and we didn’t know it." In the apology, they also mentioned that they are atheists so did not recognise a holy place. However, the damage has already been done. Djelantik mentioned them as "parasites to her homeland" along with the pictures of the couple's apology.
