A travel blogger has come under fire on social media for posing in a ‘dangerous’ stunt after posting a picture of himself hanging off a hotel balcony.
Manchester-born Jack Morris, who lives in Bali with his Australian girlfriend Lauren Bullen, shared a snapshot, taken in Bangkok, Thailand on Instagram to promote the new launch of his presets.
The photograph shows the 29-year-old social media influencer – who has more than 2.7 million followers on @doyoutravel – sitting precariously over the ledge of a building.
But critics have responded by saying not only was he putting his life at risk but it was an irresponsible picture to share online because copy-cats could be in real danger if they tried the same stunt.

One woman revealed she lost her friend last year after she tried to take a picture of herself but ended up falling to her death from a lookout point along the Oregon coast
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Jack Morris for comment.
The photo, which was posted on his Instagram page on February 26, 2020, has since prompted a ferocious debate in the comments section.
‘Not a good pic! Very dangerous. And with the number of followers you have, other people might imitate without thinking it through. Very irresponsible of you to post this,’ one person said.
Another said: ‘I been to this hotel and I think you sitting there is just too dangerous and crazy! All about social media.’
One said: ‘People will try and copy this and die. Bad example.’
Another person said: ‘What are you trying to advocate? Think before you do. You don’t need this “Coolness”.’
One said: ‘Ah not good pic! Another people can repeat! It’s dangerous.’
And another said: ‘This is not a good influence. Love your life, kids.’
Others said they have since unfollowed his page because of his ‘risky behaviour’.
