American R&B and singer Omarion has reacted to Omicron jokes. He explained on social media referring to the latest COVID-19 variant Omicron, by his name.
The B2K star said, “Hi, this is Omarion. I am an artist – not a variant. So please be aware that if you just so happen to run into me on the street, you don’t have to isolate for five days,”
The singer shared a series of videos to TikTok on New Year’s Day. He light-heartedly set the record straight for his fans.
In the next video, he said, “While it’s important not to touch me and keep your distance – cause you know that’s how it’s supposed to be – you don’t need a negative test to dance to my music.”
In the final video, Omarion reads a “letter from his lawyers”. He said, “The last time I had to do this was in 2000 when everyone confused Y2K with B2K. That ain’t how it’s supposed to be, but seriously, I want to wish you all a happy and safe new year’s. Peace.”
The jokes first started last year November when the Omicron variant appeared all over the world. Several videos posted on social media mentioned the caption like, “to keep the Omarion Variant away, you have to do this routine 3 times in the mirror”.
