On the monitor itself there should be some button which allows you to access its controls - menu or something like that. Find the "degauss" function and operate that. It may not work the first time - or even subsequent times if its really distorted. Don't do it too much as it can wreck the monitor - but you may have done that already.

If it doesn't work it's hands deep in pocket time and remember to be more careful with your next one!

If degaussing doesn't work, get the same magnet and pass it to and from the colour fringed area in various directions so that the magnetic field grows and dies.

You'll see the colour fringing change and you'll find a movement that will reduce it to near zero. Then the usual degaussing when switching on and off the monitor will get rid of the rest fairly quickly.

Unorthodox, but it does work.
