Over the weekend, the UK’s X Factor made headlines after some pranksters rushed the staged during contestant Honey G‘s performance. Oh no!
The jokesters, who are a part of the group TrollStation, attempted to steal the artist’s trademark cap and sunglasses before being escorted off stage by security. Judges Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne, and Louis Walsh were all left shocked as the security breach went down. In fact, at one point, the American Idol alum even made his way towards the stage in an attempt to help Honey G!
Thankfully, the pranksters have since been identified AND convicted criminal Daniel Jarvis was even fingered as the one leading the incident. It’s said Jarvis uploaded a video of himself to Facebook where he was seen in the audience making a “Shhh” gesture before winking at the camera. Smh.
He apparently captioned the vid:
“Making my X factor debut today so excited. Live on itv1 from 8pm!!!”
Sigh. As you may know, Jarvis is the same jokester that participated in TrollStation’s fake art heist back in 2015. Alongside a few others, Jarvis was jailed for pretending to steal precious paintings from the National Portrait Gallery and the Tate Modern. And clearly Daniel didn’t learn his lesson!
