R&B musician Οmarion’s name may start witһ an “Om” and end with an “on,” but he wants it known that he’s got nothing to do with the ⅼatest coronavirus variant, Omicron. 

“Hi, this is Omarion. I am an artist, not a variant,” he says in a TikTok video posted Jan. 1. “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.”

He’s also changed his TikTok biography to read,Omarion the Entertainer not the variant.”

And while he didn’t cite any specific instances of his name getting confused with the virus, he made two more videos about the mixup. “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,” he says in one. 

Take heart, Omarion. Early in the coronavirus pandemic, it seemed certain Corona beer sales would suffer due to the name association. But CBS reports that after a slight dip in sales in the early summer of 2020, sales of Corona beer actually rose.
