The have couple defended their dangerous poses with quotes about how “taking risks” is worth the life experience.

“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,” the couple wrote.

They may have 161,000 followers, but not everyone is impressed with their daring antics.

“It’s just stupid beyond belief that you are doing this to gain attention from people,” one person commented.

“You both deserve to fall,” another person wrote.

There are those concerned that the poses may attract copycats.

“F**k you for your absolutely stupid photos, influencing others to mimic your dangerous photos, which in turn causes pain and death,” a Instagram user said.

Another person pointed out that it usually seemed to be Kelly risking her life for the photos and not Kody.

“Why always the girl at the risky side?”

One person even called out the photograph, claiming it was edited.

“I call fake on this one. Two issues, shadow. Her arms are crossed. The sun is above and slightly behind them. The larger shadow below them is just odd to begin with, but the three parallel pieces of that shadow one would expect to be the arms,” the person wrote.

A lot of people questioned whether online fame was worth risking their lives for.

“Is your life is more valuable than instagram?”

As for the influencers, they appear oblivious to the criticism and continue to aim to “inspire” others to take risks.

“We urge you to take a chance, to push past barriers of negativity and oppression of self fulfilment,” positravelty posted.
