Large Hadron Collider: TikTokers spread conspiracy theories about CERN discovery
TikTok conspiracy theorists think scientists at European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) are planning to depopulate the earth.
The conspiracy theories started appearing on the video sharing app after CERN’s The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) three exotic particles described at a seminar on Tuesday (5 July), including a previously unseen pentaquark and the first-ever pair of tetraquarks, including a new type of tetraquark.
Scientists at CERN use the world’s largest scientific (17 miles long) instrument to explore the universe’s structure.
TikTok videos featuring conspiracy theories have received millions of views since the announcement was made by CERN.
The people who are spreading the theories seem to be obsessed with hit Netflix show “Strangers Things”.
A TikToker said scientists at CERN are hiding something from the world.
He was of the view that the Large Hadron Collider would open a portal to another dimension once it turned back on.
A user linked it to Hindu god Shiva and said a gate to hell has been opened to reduce the world population.
