In 2006 Sukumaran and Chan, along with seven other Australians, who were later dubbed the "Bali Nine", were caught in Bali with 8.3kg of heroin. The other seven Australians are in prison with only Sukumaran and Chan facing the death penalty.

The tweets urged Australian tourists to cancel their holidays to the Indonesian island.

@IndonesiaAust please stop execution of Myuran and Andrew. This will impact how we view Indonesia forever. #IStandForMercy #boycottbali

The hashtag was then criticised by Indonesians, who posted photos of the island telling Australians they were terrible tourists.

The #boycottbali hashtag is being bombarded with Indonesians posting beautiful photos and telling Aussies what terrible tourists they are.

Many of the tweets said the island would be better off without the Australian tourists.

Smugglers are smugglers, send them to death. Let them #boycottbali and the road will be cleaner from the drunkers
