Antisemitic Prankster Mizzy Bacari Ogarro Facing the Music

Remember “Mizzy” Bacari Ogarro, the idiot who would film himself pranking people – which included frightening Jewish people while stoking the flames of antisemitism?

Since I last wrote about him, things have gone from bad from worse for him.

For a start, he recently met his match in a feisty woman, who made him look like the little nincompoop that he is (language warning):

Then his TikTok and Instagram accounts were removed (note Israellycool is mentioned in the video):

And the icing on the cake?

Police officers have arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of causing a public nuisance after an investigation into claims made on social media. 

The teenager, who is believed to be behind a series of vile TikTok ‘pranks’ that have included stealing a woman’s dog, ripping up library books and jumping into strangers’ cars, is being held in police custody.

He was filmed by friends in the moments before police hauled him away after police officers travelled to his home, which he shares with his mother, yesterday afternoon, following an online furore over his social media videos.  

In a statement on Monday night, the Metropolitan Police confirmed that a teenager had been arrested following an investigation into footage shared online.  

‘The arrest follows an investigation into social media footage which featured a number of incidents, including apparently unsolicited approaches made towards members of the public in the street or on transport, and entering addresses without the apparent permission of the owners.’ 

Detective Chief Superintendent James Conway of the Central East Command Unit, responsible for policing in Hackney and Tower Hamlets, said: ‘I do not underestimate the widespread upset, distress and concern that these videos caused.

‘Some people have referred to these as “prank” videos, but I hope that this significant development demonstrates just how seriously we have been taking this investigation since this footage began circulating online.

‘A number of these videos were produced, impacting on many different people and our investigation remains ongoing as we seek to build a strong picture of both the activity featured in the footage and impact on the public.’

One officer previously told MailOnline: ‘We’ve been looking for him for a number of days but each time we visit the property, he’s never in. 

‘He’s very well known around here and we’ve had to visit his home in the past to speak to him several times about his conduct. We can’t go into any details about the exact reason why we want to speak to him. I can’t say if any further action will follow.’

His YouTube page, which had nearly 39,000 subscribers, has also been removed, with a message saying it had breached the platform’s terms of service. 

Mizzy is very much a monster of other people’s making. If he didn’t generate so many views with his antics, he likely would not have continued with them. It is not just Mizzy who needs to take a good, long hard look at himself.

Update: According to the screenshot taken by this Twitter user, Mizzy had noticed my initial post on him and recorded a video about it.
