'I'll drag you out by your hair!' TikTok prankster Mizzy walks out of TalkTV interview

TikTok prankster Mizzy walked out of an interview with TalkTV's Andre Walker and Danielle Nicholls after an angry exchange about his behaviour in the studio.

Mizzy, real name Bacari-Bronze O'Garro, clashed with the presenters during an interview with political commentator Reem Ibrahim who asked him whether his videos enticed people to commit cimes.

O'Garro appeared to stare down Ms Ibrahim without answering her question and Andre became furious, shouting: "Hang on a second. You can do that to me, you're not doing it to a guest.

"You stare at another guest again, and I'm going to personally remove you. I'm not taking the mick. You glared at her in a threatening fashion.

"You do that, and I'll drag you out by the hair and you can be as hard as you pretend you are. You apologise to her right now, or you're leaving."

It came after the 18-year-old, who was invited to speak about his online persona and controversial social media pranks, accused the mainstream media of "manipulating" society and taking advantage of him.

At the start of the interview O'Garro read out a prepared statement that social media personalities should not be taken at face value.

"I have remorse, and I know when to take accountability for my actions in my personal life when I'm Bacari - not when I'm showing you 'Mizzy' on the internet," he said.

"I don't condone what I do, nor do I tell anyone to repeat any of my actions. People need to learn to detach social media from real life, as social media is just one big game.

"'Mizzy', this online persona I curated, is social proof that society is weak, and that the public is manipulated by the media, and swayed away from the truth so easily."

He also claimed the media attention generated by his pranks was due to him being a young black man "doing something different".

Andre said: "When you walked into that very wealthy person's house, part of the shock of it was a young black man walking into a wealthy person's house.

"I thought that potentially you were attempting to highlight racism by that prank?"

O'Garro responded: "Essentially, in a nutshell, that's what it is. If a white person had done that and called it a prank, it wouldn't have gone this far."
