TikTok thugs who beat up Asda staff and shoppers while dressed as super-heroes have long carried out sick practical jokes and shared them online including fake beatings, shoplifting and robberies, MailOnline can reveal today.

The group Live Madness Replays is led by George O’Boyle, 30, who was dressed as Ali G and led the crowd of his online ‘followers’, similarly in fancy dress, into the Clapham supermarket during lockdown after posting an advert online in July 2021.

What he had billed as a fun stunt became ever more violent – with multiple Asda staff beaten with metal bars, punched, kicked, and left bloodied after the mob burst into the shop’s storeroom. Two weeks before he had ran amok in a Tesco with friends, climbing on freezers and calling shoppers ‘f****** c****’.

O’Boyle has filmed himself stealing beer while dressed as a nun as well as faking serious assaults and robberies so he can see the reaction of the public, including one innocent Uber driver who he booked to be his getaway driver when he faked robbing a Post Office.

On one occasion he claimed he was beaten up and given a black eye when he started hoovering strangers’ pool tables in Croydon.

Josh McDonald, 33, who was dressed as Spider-Man and knocked out a woman working in the store, is a martial arts champion who also appears in O’Boyle’s outrageous and sometimes law-breaking stunts. 

O’Boyle, of Surbiton, south London, has admitted both violent disorder and assault occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH) and will be sentenced next month. 

Two weeks before the Asda incident, a thug in a Spider-Man outfit stormed a Tesco.

Footage of the comic book character stood on the top of chiller and frozen food cabinets abusing customers.

At one point the masked man, believed to be O’Boyle,  is heard shouting down to where shoppers buy their goods ‘Come on then, you f****** c****’.

On social media, where he taunted victims by saying ‘supermarkets are my playground’, he calls himself ‘Gee Money’. 

Last year he had 50,000 Instagram followers and more on TikTok and YouTube. But it appears his follower numbers may have dropped since the Asda carnage.

He also staged a pretend mugging at a cashpoint and filmed passers-by reacting. He has already been fined for criminal damage in earlier stunts.

In one stunt he set up a camping stove and cooked breakfast in a supermarket aisle. He also done the same outside a Greggs, claiming to have been sacked and handing out free sausage rolls.

O’Boyle is close friends with Josh McDonald, 33, who sickened hundreds of thousands online when a video emerged of his violent assault during a fancy-dress invasion of an Asda by self-proclaimed ‘influencers’ in July 2021.

Dressed as Spider-Man, the martial arts champion kicked and punched a supermarket worker unconscious.

O’Boyle and McDonald appear to work together to pretend to be two OAPs, wearing prosthetic masks, walking with sticks and clothing won by the elderly.

In one video one of them was beaten with a fake brick, lying on the floor of a petrol station shop screaming for help and asking staff to call an ambulance.

Panicked shoppers ran to his aid only for him to walk out of the store laughing. One was visibly angry and said: ‘That’s not f***ing funny’.

Josh McDonald’s social media shows his prowess at fighting,  with multiple videos of him pounding punchbags.

McDonald was part of a group of now-disgraced superheroes that also included Ali-G, Batman and Little Red Riding Hood. There was also a one-legged amateur boxer who first dressed as Matt Lucas’ faux-disabled Andy from TV show Little Britain – complete with ‘bald-wig’ – before switching to Goldilocks plaits in the chaos.

And the Daily Mail can reveal McDonald is a black belt in mixed martial arts who won a number of fights after training at the Black Dragon Martial Arts Academy near his home in Northampton. He boasted online he was a contender for the ‘Iska kickboxing world championship’ in 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany. 

Yesterday a judge heard McDonald had admitted actual bodily harm and violent disorder in the disturbing incident – which was filmed and live-streamed online. Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court was set to begin a four-week trial into the near-riot but yesterday heard that all the key participants had admitted their guilt.

The horrifying ‘stunt’ was organised by a group called Live Madness Replays. The mob, several of whom were from the same martial arts club, were seen beating male and female members of Asda staff in the aisles and stock room before turning on terrified shoppers, some of whom were knocked to the ground.

The ringleaders had posted an advert online, welcoming all-comers, and saw a nun, a spaceman, a soldier and a human fly also turn up to cause carnage when lockdown restrictions remained in place. Three of the six suspects came to London from Northampton, the other three were from south-west and west London.

The supposed prank's leader was George O'Boyle (pictured in yellow Ali G costume), 30, who repeatedly threatened to punch staff as he led the crowd of his online 'followers', similarly in costume, into the supermarket

McDonald’s dreams of sporting stardom are now in tatters after he and four others admitted their involvement in the violent assault at Asda in Clapham Junction, south London, one evening in July 2021.

The supposed prank’s leader was George O’Boyle, 30, who was dressed as Ali G while repeatedly threatening to punch staff as he led the crowd of his online ‘followers’, similarly in costume, into the supermarket.

What he had billed as a fun stunt became ever more violent – with multiple Asda staff beaten with metal bars, punched, kicked, and left bloodied after the mob burst into the shop’s storeroom.

When supervisor Lauren Scott remonstrated with Sophie Roberts, 19, dressed as Little Red Riding Hood as she rampaged back on to the shop floor, the teenager – also a kickboxer and who trained at the same academy as McDonald – punched her in the face.

As Miss Scott tried to defend herself, McDonald marched over in his Spider-Man costume and high-kicked and punched her unconscious, before proudly stalking off.

Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court was set to begin a four-week trial into the near-riot but yesterday heard that all the key participants had admitted guilt. They will be sentenced next month.

As well as McDonald’s guilty plea, O’Boyle, of Surbiton, south London, admitted both violent disorder and assault occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH).

‘Red Riding Hood’ Roberts, of Northampton, yesterday pleaded guilty to ABH assault and public disorder involving threats of violence.

One-legged amateur boxer Rikki McKenzie, 37, also of Northampton, had dressed as faux-disabled Andy from TV sketch show Little Britain in the Asda invasion, complete with ‘bald-wig’ – although at some point he switched it for Goldilocks plaits.

As staff struggled to force him unwillingly out of the shop, he fell from his wheelchair.

McKenzie was back in his wheelchair in court yesterday as he admitted a public order offence involving threats of violence.

Mark Pettigrew, 38, from west London, had joined the Asda mayhem dressed in uniform as ‘Army Man’, and was involved in an attack on two workers. He was not present in court, but the judge was told he admitted public disorder with violent threats.

O’Boyle’s girlfriend and mother of his two children, Katie Pickard, 31, from south London, had been dressed as a nun while Charlie Jay Sharp, 19, from Northampton, had gone to the supermarket as ‘Onesie Girl’ in a purple onesie.

But prosecutor Nicholas Mather told the court he was not proceeding with the charges against the pair, saying: ‘They were certainly at the Asda and involved in some way – but whether they personally used or threatened violence is a moot point, and at some point they can be seen on videos restraining those involved in violence.’

They were formally declared not guilty of charges of violent disorder.

McDonald, O’Boyle and Roberts could all face five years in jail, the maximum sentence for ABH, as well as for violent disorder.

Public disorder with threats of violence can lead to up to six months.
