American travellers Kelly and Kody, who post on Instagram under their account Positravelty, are not new to controversy.

The influencer couple regularly posts stunning shots of themselves on their travels.

In the past, however, they’ve received criticism over their ‘dangerous’ pictures, such as one where they can be seen kissing at the edge of a mountain-high infinity pool.

Not scared of heights, Kelly and Kody have been pictured once again, dangling at the edge of high terrains.

The couple has been called ‘attention-seeking’ for hanging off the edge of a cliff in the Humantay Lagoon in Peru.

In the risky image, Kody can be seen sitting on the corner of a cliff while holding his girlfriend with his hands as she dangles off the side.

Though they’ve received more than 1,000 comments on their Instagram post, some of which have been critical, the couple is only focusing on the positive.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, they said: ‘We absolutely love this photo from our adventures in Peru, and we are so thankful for all the positive messages we have received.’

Kelly and Kody, who are currently travelling through the Dominican Republic, regularly post high-risk travel pics with inspirational captions.

They captioned the lagoon image with: ‘We urge you to take a chance, to push past barriers of negativity and oppression of self-fulfillment and paint the picture of who you want to be.

‘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. We know which side we would rather be on, do you?’

Some of their 170,000-strong fans weren’t too impressed.

One of them wrote: ‘What if she slipped and died? Would you still be calling her brave? Think about what you’re trying to influence here guys.’

Another asked: ‘Why is he always dangling you over the edge?’

One person asked the couple to revaluate their antics: ‘You really don’t understand the power you hold, do you?’ they asked.

‘You will encourage others who don’t know how to play with perspective, and someone will kill themselves by accident trying to emulate you. You’re an influencer. You influence. The clue is in the title.’

Others weren’t offended, with one saying: ‘I’m back looking at the photo people are getting mad about now, and just want to say that your photos are beautiful and thank you for sharing them with us.’
