The couple committed what they thought was a harmless, playful act in the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud.

Indonesian netizens were shocked by the behaviour and infuriated at the couple. Some netizens alerted the Bali Immigration Agency to detain the two foreigners until they take responsibility for their deplorable actions.

Slouka apologised about the video and admitted how they “dishonored the holy temple and holy water in Ubud.” He said he did not know the grounds were sacred to locals.

Dolezalova supported her partner and said they “had no idea about the holy water or … holy temple” and added that they “really didn’t want to do anything bad.”

“We are truly sorry and we hope you are going to forgive us. Now, we are just finding out what we can do to fix it,” she added.

In a message sent to Balinese designer Niluh Djelantik, the couple explained that they cannot distinguish which places were holy because they are atheists.

Their “apology” further infuriated Indonesians, saying the apology was insincere and that the couple’s atheism does not excuse their bad behaviour or ignorance.

As of posting, the couple have set their accounts to private.

On Sunday (Aug 8), the two foreigners were ordered to apologise in front of the Bali police for their controversial and insensitive actions./TISG
