"I left those stories online because they are full of informations [sic] and I really want to spread them but I don't want to be seen as an influencer going to Chernobyl because it's trendy now". It isn't safe to live there, but by signing up for a tour you can visit the area surrounding the power plant.

Following the explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant's RBMK reactor 33 years ago, a 2500-square-mile exclusion zone was established around the disaster site.

Others have criticised the Instagram influencers for their sexy posing photos that disrespect the fatal accident that claimed thousands of lives or forced thousands more to flee.

And in March, officials from the Auschwitz Museum tweeted a reminder to visitors not to pose for photos at the former Nazi concentration camp where more than one million people were murdered. The image has garnered comments calling the user, who has 3,922 followers, "repulsive", "disrespectful" and "disgusting".

As we mentioned last week, the show has become so popular that it's now something of a hot spot for Instagrammers to flock to, where they've been snapping photos of themselves amid the sad, tragic debris that remains in the abandoned area around the plant.

The creator of a new HBO series about the world's worst nuclear accident, which happened in 1986, has pleaded with fans to be mindful when visiting the region.

Another Instagrammer shared a picture of himself posing with his leg in the air in front of a Ferris wheel near the site.

According to The Sun, the insensitive Instagram posts are part of a rise of "dark tourism" were tourists visit locations of a dark history.

Tourists flocking to Chernobyl are being warned to be respectful to the victims of the nuclear disaster when posting photos on social media.
