Piers Morgan has told the TikToker known as Mizzy he is a ‘complete moron’ after the prankster said ‘I can do what I want’.
Mizzy, whose real name is Bacari-Bronze O’Garro, sparked an outcry after he filmed himself entering a family’s home without their permission and posted the video online.
He appeared on Morgan’s TalkTV show hours after being issued with a criminal behaviour order at Thames Magistrates Court and fined £365 – a penalty many have called ‘pathetic’ and lenient.
During the feisty interview, Morgan asked the 18-year-old: ‘What has been motivating you to terrorise the people around where you live?’
He replied: ‘I wouldn’t really call it terrorising, I’ll just call it more having fun.’
Along with the trespass video, where he pretends to be looking for a study group, Mizzy has filmed himself ‘stealing’ an elderly woman’s dog, ripping up library books and jumping into strangers’ cars.
Mizzy, who lives in Stoke Newington, north London, told Morgan he said sorry to the homeowner but refused to make an apology on air.

‘That was more of a spur of the moment thing, I got spurred on and my ego got a hold of me. I realised that at that moment and that’s why I went to apologise the next day.’
Morgan then told him: ‘Why don’t you stop doing it? If my mother told me to stop doing something, I’d stop doing it.’
But Mizzy shot back: ‘That’s your mother, you listen to somebody else. I am my own person. I am legally an adult now. I can do what I want.’
The teenager, who is unemployed and on Universal Credit, later said ‘UK laws are weak’ when they discussed how he got away with just a fine.
He then claimed: ‘Hate brings money. Hate brings likes, brings views – it doesn’t matter.’
