  • Chernobyl deaths how many people died disaster aftermath

The internet is blowing up over these Chernobyl selfies and travel porn pics.

It was only matter of time before Instagram users turned it into a hot photo op.

Now the man behind the "Chernobyl" series is weighing in on the tasteless new trend.

He tweeted on Wednesday: "It's wonderful that #ChernobylHBO has inspired a wave of tourism to the Zone of Exclusion". 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".

Craig Mazin, the screenwriter and creator of HBO's Chernobyl, has responded to reports that "influencers" have been flocking to the doomed nuclear power plant in Ukraine to share inappropriate photos from the tragic location. "Comport yourselves with respect for all who suffered and sacrificed".

Another offending image came from law student Julia Baessler, who has 320,000 followers and has since deleted the post.

English language tours to the site are said to cost around $100 (£78) and usually consist of a round trip from Kiev to the town of Chernobyl, a visit to the plant itself, and a walk around Pripyat which housed 50,000 people but is now empty after being evacuated in the aftermath of the explosion on 26 April, 1986. "Standing there is just indescribable, it's shocking and something I will never forget", she captioned the photo.
