A TikTok prankster known as Mizzy whose stunts include invading family homes and pretending to steal dogs has finally apologised.
Bacari-Bronze O’Garro, 18, admitted he ‘made a stupid mistake’ after he filmed himself walking through a couple’s door and walking around in front of their young kids.
He was slapped with a £365 fine and handed a community behaviour order barring him from posting videos without the consent of those in it.
It also lays out tougher punishments for trespassing onto private property, including potential jail time, and bans him from visiting the Westfield in Stratford, east London.
But he was arrested for breaching the order after he entered the shopping centre on Friday.
O’Garro, from Hackney, London, has now admitted the ‘prank’ was a ‘very big violation’ to the homeowners.
He said in a video posted to Twitter: ‘I made a very dumb stupid mistake, a house is supposed to be a safe space where you know you can relax without being in any sort of distress and me walking into that house was a very big violation to the homeowners.
‘They had kids and I have a child myself so I know how protective people get over their children.
‘This doesn’t justify what I’ve done and to be fair I don’t know what can but just know I had remorse to that family hence why I went there off camera the next day by myself and apologised to the family.’
O’Garro then went on to say ‘Mizzy’ is a ‘character he created’, but ‘Bacari definitely has remorse’.
He also praised Tristan Tate, who was arrested along with his brother Andrew Tate on allegations of rape, people trafficking and forming an organised crime group, for ‘helping immensely’.
They deny the allegations.
‘Tristan Tate reached out to me when the whole world was against me, and ever since then the Tate brothers have been helping me immensely, teaching me to actually take people’s feelings in and hold more accountability for my actions as I develop into a man,’ O’Garro said.
This is despite appearing to defend his actions to Piers Morgan on Thursday, claiming ‘UK laws are weak’ and boasting: ‘I can do what I want.’
He said on Piers Morgan Uncensored: ‘I would more call it having fun. But let me get this out of the way first, I apologised.
‘You see this situation that blew up on the internet, like walking into random houses, the next day I apologised because I felt bad.’
At his court hearing last week, prosecutors said the teenager had ’caused the family a lot of distress’.
Other videos allegedly show him entering a man’s car claiming it is his Uber and stealing an elderly woman’s dog and running away laughing, before later returning it to her.
