BALI  – Indonesian netizens have gone into a rage accusing an American woman of disrespecting the local way of life by promoting a lavish lifestyle in Bali and encouraging other foreigners to move to the resort island.

Twenty-eight-year-old Kristen Gray wrote on her Twitter account @kristentootie on Sunday that the decision to move to Bali with her girlfriend had been a game-changer after what she called the “hardship” of living as a Black queer in the United States.

 She wrote that she could afford an “elevated lifestyle at much lower cost of living” in Bali while living the life of a digital nomad.

“There was an energy about the [United States] that I had to take a break from. Bali was the perfect medicine,” she wrote. “I also wanted to get out of survival mode and tap into how I could thrive.”    
Gray encouraged other Westerners to follow.
