A man’s attempt to disprove the vaccine magnet theory fails, and he admits he was mistaken.
One man has apologized after proving himself wrong in a follow-up video, as individuals flock to show that magnets attach to their post-vaccine arms.
Rob Marrocco, 25, expressed his surprise after discovering that a magnet was able to stick to his arm following his inoculation last week.
“I’m completely taken aback. This is not a joke, I swear to God. This is where I got my injection the other day, and it’s not sticky. In a TikTok video, he added, “This is a magnet, a powerful magnet.” Morocco captured footage of the magnet remaining on his arm by itself.
In a subsequent video, he demonstrated the magnet stuck to his arm once more, this time poking it to demonstrate its strength.
In the comments, one viewer recommended, “Put baby powder on that location and try the same thing.”
On June 6, Marrocco attempted to prove the magnet adhering was due to his arm being magnetic, rather than just somewhat sticky, by rubbing baby powder on his arm at the start of the video.
“I got baby powder that we’re going to apply on my arm to illustrate that this isn’t my sticky skin,” he explained. “It’s impossible for it to stick now, and if it does, I’m going to have a nervous breakdown.”
The magnet did not attach to Marrocco’s arm this time, and after a few attempts, it slipped off completely and onto the floor.
At the end, he said, “I would like to express a public apologies for being an idiot.”

Since the rollout of the vaccine, recipients have sparked a rapidly spreading theory that the vaccine makes your arm magnetic, suggesting there is some kind of metal in the dose.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued information on June 3, debunking the theory: “Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will not make you magnetic, including at the site of vaccination which is usually your arm. COVID-19 vaccines do not contain ingredients that can produce an electromagnetic field at the site of your injection.
“All COVID-19 vaccines are free from metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, lithium, and. This is a brief summary.
