Controversial TikToker Mizzy says he's made £100k from pulling stunts like 'stealing OAP's dog'

TikToker Mizzy has certainly made a name for himself in recent weeks, even if one of those names was a 'TikTok terror' as Piers Morgan branded him.
But being a controversial TikTok prankster apparently pays big.
The 18-year-old has revealed how much dosh he's made from his controversial stunts which have seen him steal an old woman's dog, harass Jewish people and walk into a stranger's house uninvited.
Safe to say, the so-called pranks haven't gone down well, with the TikToker having appeared in court on May 30 after he breached his Criminal Behaviour Order.
Mizzy, whose real name is Bacari-Bronze O'Garro, has reportedly earned £100,000 thanks to YouTube ad revenue, Snapchat and Instagram promotions, donations and streaming revenue.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Mizzy discussed his plans for his amassed fortune: "Save it for the future, invest at the right times and help others. I don’t care about money at the end of the day but you still need some to thrive."
Although he has made big bucks from his online content, his mum is reportedly pushing for him to get a 'real job', especially after his pranks have landed him in court.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Mizzy's frustrated mother Donna said: "I've had enough.
"Even if he goes to the shop, he does his stupid little pranks. I don't like what he's doing — I'm not supporting him. He needs to find a job and sort himself out. That's what he needs to do."
Getting a job isn't high on her son's agenda, however, as he remarked: "I’ve never wanted to work a ‘normal’ job what is normal, working for someone else?
"My mum wants me to get one but she cant see the bigger picture as she’s small-minded."
Since his pranks went viral online, Mizzy has appeared on television a few times.
He was interviewed on Piers Morgan: Uncensored, where he butted heads with the outspoken television presenter.
In recent days, he was featured on BBC's Newsnight t and stormed out of the TalkTV studio after a clash with another presenter.
On that occasion, Andre Walker exploded at him and accused him of 'threatening' behaviour towards another panellist who had challenged Mizzy over his behaviour.
Walker yelled at the TikToker: "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, 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."
Rather than apologise, Mizzy left his seat and headed out of the studio, as Walker fumed: "Good riddance to bad rubbish!"
