Abstract

The PBR theorem is widely seen as one of the most important no-go theorems in the foundations of quantum mechanics. Recently in Found. Phys. 53(3), 64 (2023) it has been argued that there is no reality to the PBR theorem using a pair of bolts as a counterexample. In this addendum we expand on the argument: we disprove the PBR theorem by a generic counterexample, and we put the finger on the precise spot where Pusey, Barrett, and Rudolph have made a tacit assumption that is false.
