Thousands lost their lives after a safety test went wrong that fateful day on 26 April 1986, but now thousands more can flourish through sexy, topical photos hashtagged #Chernobyl:
It appears that in the pictures above, this IG model not only went to Chernobyl but is also posing in the jumpsuit that the Soviets wore to clean up the disaster. Classy!
This photo is disrespectful to the people who lost their lives. How insensitive can you be?
People died there in a very horrific way – have some respect.
Craig Mazin, who created the drama series, says:
It’s wonderful that #ChernobylHBO has inspired a wave of tourism to the Zone of Exclusion. But yes, I’ve seen the photos going around.
If you visit, please remember that a terrible tragedy occurred there. Comport yourselves with respect for all who suffered and sacrificed.
