Man my generation needs to learn respect and be more self aware.
It is not uncommon for these important religious or historical sites to have limitations or restrictions on filming and photography, and this wave of social media “influencers” are not helping ease the restrictions.
Recently, multiple sites in Nepal, mostly Buddhist pilgrimage locations like Lumbini and Ram Janaki have taken action and banned the TikTokers. During filming the “influencers” would play loud music with complete disregard for the people who travelled across the world to visit these important places.
When looking for the videos you can find a lot of young people dancing through these places playing loud music. Now there are cameras and guards tasked with removing people who break the rules. It seems like so much of what people do now is just for a photo op and they aren’t there to actually enjoy the experience which can ruin it for the people who are there because it’s important to them.
Yea I make some Tik Toks here and there as a part of my job, but I don’t think it gives me the right to disrespect my surroundings and act like I’m more important than the people around me.
