Chernobyl Instagram thirst traps are not cool: HBO series creator

Influencers are using Chernobyl for Instagram likes Chernobyl visitors criticised for 'disrespectful' photos shared on Instagram

Craig Mazin, the creator of the show, is now urging people to stop taking selfies and have more respect when they visit the nuclear disaster site.

The tabloid also said that tourists have reportedly been visiting Chernobyl's unsafe radiation zone to party with large groups.

In a tweet Tuesday, Mazin said that while it's great the HBO show on the subject has inspired people to go to the site in the Ukraine, "If you visit, please remember that a awful tragedy occurred there".

"If you visit, please remember that a awful tragedy occurred there", he continued. "Comport yourselves with respect for all who suffered and sacrificed", he added.

He also referenced having seen some questionable that photos tourists have posted.

The five-part series tells the story of the missteps and mismanagement that led to the accident. The image of Baessler suited up in hardhat and mask in the control room of the "destroyed unit 4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant", contrasted starkly with the bikini and fitness pics she nearly exclusively posts. It killed 31 people instantly and forced tens of thousands to flee.

Central Park Five case prosecutor resigns from Columbia Law School
The former prosecutor has already been forced to shut down her social media accounts and resigned from three non-profit boards. The Netflix series has sparked backlash on both sides for its portrayal of the case.

Although the United Nations predicted up to 9,000 related cancer deaths back in 2005, Greenpeace later estimated up to 200,000 fatalities, taking further health problems connected to the disaster into account. Once inside the exclusion zone, adventurers can explore the town of Pripyat, which was abruptly evacuated in 1986; stand under the Ferris wheel at the abandoned amusement park, and see the infamous nuclear reactor (safely enclosed in a steel structure to contain radiation) from an observation point 1000 feet away.

The radiation has not put off social media influencers.

Much of the area has been open to tourists since 2011, but some sections, such as the "machine cemetery" of Rossokha village, remain off-limits.

In 2015, Malaysia fined four foreign hikers after they took naked photos at the top of Mount Kinabalu, which is considered sacred.

On Tuesday, Mazin wrote a comment on Twitter that acknowledged the wave of tourism at the abandoned city and said people should be more mindful of what happened there, considering many individuals lost their lives due to radiation health complications.
