M.I.A. Is Selling 5G-Blocking Tin Foil Hats to ‘Protect Your Brain’

M.I.A. just dropped some new conspiracy merch, including a range of tin foil hats that protect your brain from 5G waves.

The “Paper Planes” singer launched her new clothing brand OHMNI, last week, calling it “the armor of the modern knight in the age of technological warfare.” Over the last several months, M.I.A. has drawn criticism for aligning with online personalities who promote conspiracy theories, including Alex Jones.

The brand is currently promoting “tin foil” bucket hats that are made with pure copper and nickel Faraday fabric, which M.I.A. guarantees will “provide 100% brain coverage.” It also will (allegedly) block 99.9% of WiFi, 4G and 5G from reaching the wearer’s brain.

For what it’s worth, a quick Google search will show that claims of damage from 5G and Wifi have been widely debunked by experts.

So why is M.I.A. promoting this? Let’s take a look at OHMNI’s mission, which is stated on its website, to find out: “In the time of smart cities, digital crypto, AI, NeuraLink, hackable humans, zero privacy, deepmind, internal body data harvesting, and indiscriminate tracking surveillance, mind data mining, social media overload, augmented reality, social credit system, virtual dystopian mindfield, we bring you the revolutionary future of fashion.”

Hmm, OK, let’s see where this goes next.

“This is not your artist foray into fashion,” it continues. “This is a necessity. The armour of the modern knight in the age of modern technological warfare. You might think of the war zone as far away from where you are, yet in 2024, even your house is a digital battlefield.”
That doesn’t sound good, but let’s keep going.

“Future backwards is R U TUF. If the conspiracy theorists are wrong, good for you, you own some beautiful clothes made with pure silver and precious metals. But, if they are right, you just might have saved the future of humanity. Welcome to OHMNI. I could be a genius, I could be a cheat.”

And there we have it!

In a post following the launch, M.I.A. shared a picture of a handbag with the OHMNI logo, hinting that it could be the next item dropping soon.

“So censored and real you’d think it’s conspiracy,” she wrote in the Instagram caption to the image. “But this is true Def of revolutionary clothing.”

Her fans were divided in the comments, with some seeing her as a “visionary” while others suggest she may have lost the plot.

“So sad to see someone I once supported completely incinerate her career and become a complete nutjob,” one user wrote.

Meanwhile, another commenter asked, “Can you guys make eyewear to prevent the smart lamps that track you with your eyes please?”
