An Arizona man was allegedly hospitalized days before Christmas after his brand new Apple AirPods earphones exploded in his ears.

According to an article that is circulating the web, Josiah Johnson received 2nd-degree burns on his face and 1st degree burns in the lower extremities while watching pornography with his earphones on.

Johnson was admitted to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery but experts warned AirPod owners about the dangers of using Apple’s popular earphones. “Just throw them out,” said tech expert Lee Xiu.

If that story sounds absurd, it’s because it is.

The story originated from satire entertainment website Huzlers, who is well known for publishing stories featuring ridiculous crimes and strange sex acts among others.

However, the story picked up a bit of traction on social media with many people reacting to the fake story with confusion, shock and gullibility.
