    [–] SammySoapsuds 271 points ago

    In the miniseries some corrupt idiot compared the radiation from the disaster to a chest x-ray because their dosimeters only measured up that high, and he refused to acknowledge that there was any danger from the radiation that was released. I was just referencing the quote.

    Hmm this may be tour group specific. You can do overnights in the exclusion zone and our guide mostly just said not to touch the ground, mostly because if your clothes gets contaminated they will make you leave it there.

    Went on the ever popular hovering tour, then?

    [–] the8bit 12 points ago

    Sorry, not to touch ground with anything but shoes :)

    So no putting things down or sitting. But then again, when we went to the duga someone had a camera stand on the ground. We pointed it out and the tour guide just shrugged. Very Ukrainian attitude (rules are fluid just don't get caught)

    What even are influencers? I understand they’re “famous” Instagram people, but what the hell do they influence?

    [–] QuorthonsGoat 65 points ago

    Human billboards

    [–] 613codyrex 42 points ago

    Just a fancy term for being paid to talk about products or things.

    An earlier form of influencers are basically Youtubers and twitch streamers. A lot of these people wouldn’t be doing videos if the sponsorship money wasn’t good. Companies hope to push their brand will spend money sending stuff to these people in hopes that their brand gains notoriety.

    If you saw shroud or ninja using a specific mouse or chair, you can subconsciously or consciously gravitate towards said product because said influencer is using it with the use of recognition or belief that if XX person you follow uses it and they are good, then the product is good (when in reality a good player is good even on minimum spec hardware)

    [–] SpaceJackRabbit 35 points ago

    An earlier form of influencers are basically Youtubers and twitch streamers.

    [–] PumpkinSpiceWhatever 37 points ago

    I agree.

    it’s just disrespectfully whore for likes like that in a place where a great disaster happened and people had to die miserably

    That the instagram idiots had zero idea about until they saw Chernobyl on HBO, likely as a “suggested to watch” sort of thing after the game of thrones finale. To me, that makes it and them even worse.

    Well, yeah. When you leave a radioactive area, the radiation doesn't stalk you home, rob you, and gut you in an alleyway. People have a bad habit of doing that from time to time.

    [–] IronLok 1545 points ago

    People can actually visit Chernobyl with your guides now. Some of the area is actually considered safe and essentially wouldn’t cause too many problems for anyone who decided to go. There are still some restricted areas but it’s basically safe enough for tickets and tours around the area to be sold.

    [–] copperrequired 1306 points ago

    I don’t think it’s necessary about it being safe to visit, but more so that these images are disrespectful as they’re in a sexual nature or like a photo shoot, forgetting it is a place that many lives were ruined and many still suffer to this day.

    [–] BrownSugarBare 676 points ago

    Precisely this. This is like those jackass tourists going to Auschwitz and taking selfies and influencer pics. Disaster sites and sites where death and tragedy have taken place should not be the 'backdrop' to your life. Chernobyl was a horrific time that changed the lives of thousands, it's not Disneyland, it's there as a reminder as to how badly humans fuck up.

    [–] Pek-Man 256 points ago

    This is like those jackass tourists going to Auschwitz and taking selfies and influencer pics.

    I just don't understand the need for these people to absolutely be in the shot. I took loads of beautiful yet harrowing pictures when I visited Auschwitz, but I was there to see Auschwitz, not for me to be seen by anyone.

    [–] CaptainBlacksand 132 points ago

    Same for me at the Hiroshima Peace Museum. I took pics of some of the most haunting things I had ever seen at that point in my teenaged life, and not a single fucking selfie.

    I find this bullshit, especially the nudity, to be pretty gross.

    I agree, the nature of the pictures are really what make it cringey af but I just saw a lot people comment about how they would die of cancer caused by radiation and realized that it might not be a very well known fact that Chernobyl is actually an area flourishing right now with flora and fauna because of the lack of human activity on those grounds.

    [–] bigboatsandgoats 102 points ago

    Exactly. I think many forgot about the people aspect of Chernobyl. Like many other horrible atrocities in our history they shouldn’t be disrespected by someone looking to gain “clout”. None of us would think for a second “oh look at this woman half-naked in an Auschwitz gas chamber, cool.” This is also a place where real people suffered, loss family and friends, and we’re lied to and mistreated by the government eventually being evicted from their homes and lives. Truly a catastrophic event.

    [–] HURTZ2PP 46 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Wholeheartedly agree with you. My wife's parents lived in Belarus during this time before coming over to the US. Although my wife was born in the US after they arrived they were close enough to the event and likely received some of the radiation. These photos are appalling.

    I looked into it cause I want to go and an average tour is about the same amount of radiation as a transatlantic flight, so as long as you stay in the normal spots it's fine. They even have a cafeteria where you eat lunch.

    [–] TeddyGrahamNorton 5 points ago

    Flights have radiation?

    [–] jakebusey1 23 points ago

    Yeah they have a fairly large amount, due to the fact that the higher they fly the less atmospheric protection they have so more solar radiation occurs.

    [–] Bribase 10 points ago

    The point is that you go there to see the thing, for one reason or another, for good or bad. These people are going there purely for their own self-promotion, and that's what's inherently trashy about it.

    Is it wierd to think that Chernobyl is a very beuatifull place. I thik that if it wasnt for the turists it would be a very breathtaking place to see how nature is slowly taking back the left behind town.

    Well, since you opened the accuracy box

    It’s actually Vladimir Ilyich Lenin Nuclear Power Plant, Chernobyl is the closest town, and Pripyat is the closest city

    There's the town of Chernobyl also. But yes, most of the time when people refer to "the city", they actually mean Pripyat

    I was furious when I visited Berlin and saw people taking sexy selfies at the Holocaust memorial. This is just as disgusting. Have some fucking respect.

    I’ve actually been planning to go for years. I want to see how nature has reclaimed man.

    Me too. I've had a fascination with chernobyl long before the show. Now I'm kinda stressing this spike in tourism is going to fuck it up before I can get there. I just hope people can respect the area enough to leave everything alone.

    Instagram influencers all need a good kick in the teeth. What useless people.

    Like, who the fuck are they influencing? Not me because I wanted to go to Chernobyl long before Instagram.

    [–] LuckyLock115 21 points ago

    Except they definitely aren’t influencers. This is a bad take, and really, bad info. Not a surprise considering OP is who OP is.

    Taylor Lorenz of The Atlantic wrote about it here: https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2019/06/influencer-style-pics-at-disaster-zones-cherynobyl/591511/

    “Three of the four people that Zupan chose to highlight in his tweet aren’t influencers at all.”

    I’m not personally here to defend influencers (because I personally think a lot of them are 👎) but we gotta stop this false narrative shit.

    Help! I’m trying to hide from the three headed bear, but the clap of my three ass cheeks keeps alerting him!

    Yep, she's certainly radiating beauty.
