Russian influencer Lisha departed Jakarta for Moscow after authorities found her guilty of violating a regulation on mask use in public.

Foreign nationals caught with gross violations will serve deportation as punishment.

“This deportation is carried out to teach a lesson to all foreigners visiting Indonesian territory ⁠— they must comply with laws in the country,” Bali Governor Wayan Koster said.

Earlier, Lisha and Taiwan-born influencer Josh Paler Lin sparked controversies in Indonesia for their viral prank video.

The clip shows Lisha entering a local grocery store with a painted surgical mask on her face. 

Lin acted behind the camera while wearing a real face mask.

Later on, he feigned disbelief that their stunt “worked” because no one noticed the difference.

Lin uploaded the video on all his social media accounts and quickly went viral.

However, the original video has been taken down following the outrage.

They followed with an apology video saying they meant no disrespect nor do they discourage people to wear masks.

They reiterated that the video meant “to entertain” their viewers.

On the other hand, Lisha also did two more identical pranks for content previously this year.

In one she substituted face masks for socks and another with a bra.
