On March 23rd, Kahi uploaded a statement to social media saying: "I couldn't get my head straight so I set my account to private for a bit. I think I need to get it together. Please forgive my immature words. I am sorry to everyone disappointed in me. I am this immature and lacking."
Kahi had previously posted an Instagram picture showing her and her children playing in the ocean, leading to a string of negative comments criticizing her for uploading lighthearted pictures while the country is in crisis. She wrote captions in her deleted posts stating: "I am so happy I get to run outside with my children in the fresh air while laughing. This is Bali. Everything outside our house is a playground."
