D-12’s Bizarre, who
appeared on MTV’s prank series, Punk’d, recently discussed the televised practical
joke and the reaction he received from family members and friends.
On the episode, Bizarre was pulled over by a fake officer after the rapper withdrew
money from an ATM that gave him more than he requested.
The officer, played by a member of the Punk’d crew, questioned
Bizarre about his ATM transaction. The rapper said family and friends called
him afterward to rib him on his appearance.
"[Proof’s] always into some crazy s**t. I don’t be in that
much crazy s**t as he’s in," Bizarre told AllHipHop.com. "I just felt
like, the ATM machine, if it spits out this money, and I put my PIN number in
here, all it can do is take it out from my account. I was just like ‘This is
unbelievable. I know this isn’t my ATM machine.’"
The weekly series, hosted by actor Ashton Kutcher, baits celebrities
into compromising situations with the aid of a crew of actors who set up conditions
designed to frazzle the celebrities.
An accomplice—someone close to the celebrity—in
this case D-12 member, Proof, often helps arrange the prank and plays along.
Bizarre explained the incident’s proximity to an assault case
that he and Proof had recently beaten.
"This guy said that me and Proof had assaulted him at this
restaurant called TGI Friday’s ," said Bizarre. "I been to court for
that for the past 5-6 months. It could have been thrown out, but the judge was
such an a**hole. Going through all that, with me and him being caught in a case,
being in it together, it was like, ‘Damn, me and you again.’"
Clinging to his credibility, the hefty rapper also stated that
the editing on Punk’d didn’t reflect the entire scenario.
"It was the cops, man. It would be different if it was
the restaurant manager or some s**t like that. But it was two real police officers
and one fake actor," said Bizarre. "The part that they didn’t show
on Punk’d was [the real police yelling] ‘Lemme see your hands, get out one by
one – move!"
