When asked why he did it, a visibly contrite Beelalgy cited impersonation as his reason. He was then ordered to tender an apology using his phone to record.
The voice behind the camera then ordered him to upload the video to his Instagram account. He also warned the IG celeb not to delete the video else he'd track him down again.
However, as at the time of filing this report, the profile photo on his page is of him dressed in the uniform and no video of apology has been uploaded.
