A judge told TIKTOK prankster Mizzy his jokes were “not funny” as he was jailed today for posting videos without consent.
Within hours of his passage, Bacari-Bronze O’Garro “willfully” disregarded a court order that prevented him from sharing videos of people without their permission.
The 19-year-old was convicted of “lack of credibility” after being convicted of four counts of breaching the order.
O’Garro has now been sentenced to 18 weeks in a youth detention center.
In sentencing, Judge Matthew Bone told him: “Quite frankly, your pranks are not funny.”
Stratford Magistrates Court was told O’Garro began posting videos of people without their consent on May 24 – the same day the order was made.
He filmed at Westfield in Stratford after appearing on Piers Morgan’s talk TV show.
In the video, shoppers could be seen in the background as O’Garro told the camera: “British law is a joke.”
The order was originally issued after the prankster filmed himself entering a family home.
Last month Judge Bone banned the father-of-one from using social media “at all” until he was sentenced.
Today he extended that ban by two years by criticizing O’Garro for his “desire to be famous”.
Detective Chief Inspector Yasmin Lalani said outside court: “I think it’s an appropriate punishment for disobeying the law.”
“I hope he gets help in the juvenile detention center. Hopefully he gets help to prevent him from reoffending.”
“I think this sends a loud and clear message that no one is above the law and that they must be held accountable.”
“I think the right result has been achieved, particularly for the public too, because I think the community has been upset by the lack of respect for the law of the land and the suffering and harassment that it has caused was a blatant disregard for the community’s harassment and distress.”
