    American woman sparks furious backlash for ‘tone-deaf’ viral thread about moving to Bali

    An American woman has sparked heated debate on social media after a thread about her move to Bali went viral.

    It seems she may have picked the wrong platform to gush about her new home. While her 20-tweet thread may have worked as an Instagram caption about making dreams come true, over on Twitter people had other thoughts.

    The woman in question has since locked her account, but here’s a summary of the thread: after spending most of 2019 out of work, she and her girlfriend decided to try out Bali for six months, where she became a self-employed graphic designer and managed to live in a “treehouse” for just $400, compared to a $1,300 LA studio they were in before. They have now been there for a year, and she says that they are living an “elevated lifestyle” and that Bali was “the perfect medicine” for her physical and emotional health.


    She lists the benefits of living in Bali as: safety, low cost of living, luxury lifestyle, queer-friendly, and goes on to share her positive experience as a Black woman with the Black community there. To close out, she links to her ebook Our Bali Life is Yours which helps other people to achieve the same dream. It is currently for sale for $30.

    The backlash was immediate, with thousands of replies and quote-tweets, many of which were highlighting the impact that relatively wealthy American migrants have on local communities and gentrification.







    Her comments about living in luxury were also labelled tone-deaf, given that Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s most populous nation and its largest economy, yet around a quarter of the population lives just above the poverty line, with almost 10 per cent living in poverty.

    This is why I side eye you nikkas who go to poor countries and brag about buying p*ssy. Taking advantage of locals isn’t cool. It just shows you ain’t shyt where you from.

    People who are from Indonesia themselves also highlighted how different life is in the country for those without the writer’s American privilege, and the potential damage of encouraging more Americans to move there.

    Like I said before on here even as a black american.

    That american dollar, american passport and THAT AMERICAN MILITARY allows us to go anywhere in the world outside america and get a jump up that many of our fellow black folks from other parts of the world aren't able to do.

    Also don't think just cause you a black american that you don't benefit from american colonialism when you travel to other countries. Talking about white supremacy/colonalism here in america then benefiting from american white supremacy/american colonialism when traveling overseas is something folks really really and I mean really don't want to talk about.

    People are so negative.

    White people have been doing this shyt for hundreds of years and still continue to, but the first chance a motherfukker get on calling out and policing black people on doing the same shyt, they want to all come out like roaches.

    Black people have the right to live in any place on this planet. We're humans and we can traverse every area of this planet like the next motherfukker.

    If they not calling the police because kids are playing outside where they're residing. Calling the police because people congregating outside of the place where they residing. Trying to rezone school districts to keep neighborhood kids from being educated with their own kids. Then they need to leave them dykes alone. They aren't hurting nobody.

    Twitter is so dumb. Like folks suprised that people in another country aren't happy foreigners moving in their country talking about what a great life. As the people in their country poor as fukk.

    So these same twitter folks wouldn't be just as mad if a white women was in an african country who moved from america. Bragging how life is so grand there and how the cost of living is so low for her and she living her best life.
