The Omicron is the latest scary COVID news on everyone's feed.
The World Health organization has been using Greek letters to name COVID variants and Omicron is the 15th letter in the Greek alphabet.
It's also pretty close to the name of R&B singer Omarion.
Twitter has noticed this.
Here is some of that reaction.
