In one of his videos, we can see the young adult of 18 year old filming himself alongside his friends as he infiltrates the home of a lady who worked out front on his land in Hackney, East London.
“What are you doing?” she says in a panicked tone to the group who ignores her, before calling her spouse to come and join her “immediately”, while the young man enters a room to sit down briefly on the sofa.
At the end of the video, the three individuals appear to be heading for the exit after being informed that there are children downstairs.
In two other videos, the young man allegedly filmed himself destroying a book in a library and getting into the backseat of a stranger's car.
The arrest for public nuisance would follow to several videos, “including apparently unsolicited approaches made to members of the public on the street or in transport, and the invasion of addresses without the apparent authorization of the owners”, continued the superintendent according to the British media. .
In an interview with “The Independent”, the young content creator reportedly believed that the negative reaction to his videos was partly due to his skin color.
“I'm a black man doing these things and that's why there's such an uproar on the internet,” he reportedly said.
