An American influencer is being deported from Bali after she posted a viral thread about moving to the island that caught the attention of immigration officials.
The woman Kristen Gray recently tweeted about moving to Bali in January 2020 celebrating the region as a low-cost, queer-friendly place for foreigners. The posts caused backlash on Twitter for her 'lack of cultural awareness' and 'tax evasion.'
Indonesian authorities now accuse her of spreading 'unsettling' information, like saying Bali was queer-friendly, and that foreigners could easily get past borders amid the pandemic. Gray has been also accused of working without a business visa.
