Burglar Bunch Kid's Defense -- Peer Pressure!

2/3/2010 2:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Burglar Bunch member Nick Prugo has officially begun his televised tour of contrition -- explaining that he only broke into the homes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and more because he was just "trying to keep my friends."

Sporting his finest Larry Birkhead-esque haircut, Prugo went on "Good Morning America" today where he said he's trying to make amends to the victims and he realizes what he did "definitely wasn't O.K."

Prugo pled not guilty to eight felony burglaries back in December.

What time does GMA air where TMZ is? Last I checked, it wasn't on at 12:13 AM. Way to mess with the time stamp, Harvey!

If he had done it in NV he'd be on his way to OJ's cell block right now.

A thief is a thief!

Stop giving these spoiled little rich kids press coverage, that's just what they want. They should be behind bars learning a life's lesson instead of appearing on TV and "getting their faces out there" to become the newest freaking reality stars. Enough of this crap!

Well, it's a smart move by his attorney to play the youthful indiscretion/peer pressure card.

I agree, but it's not just kids. What about those grifters the Salahis? Or those Henne losers in Colorado?

The pop media seems to really have a thing for talentless hacks who can't make their own way in life. It says a lot about our society that these people are glorified essentially for their lack of any marketable skills, talents or abilities.

P.S. The stupid smirk he had throughout that interview WILL NOT go over well with jurors. ...just a tip.

WTFFFF!!!!! DEAR GOOD MORNING AMERICA AND TMZ:::
WHY are you giving this little ugly prick more tv time??? I am so beyond disgusted that you would let this prick give his reasons for doing what he did with his piece of crap friends. No one cares about his reasons! Are you guys that out of topics to talk about that you really want to take this sad excuse for a human being and interview him on tv??? SERIOUSLY???? Do you guys go around interviewing every burglars, rapist, killers too???? Might as well give them their 15 minutes of fame tooo... you MIGHT AS WELL.

What kind of morons are running tv nowadays???? Fat ass CEO'S, kiss butt assistants and reporters who have their ugly fat heads so far up their ass they cant even think right.
As for this chump, peer pressure??? LMAO, really??? This kid should rott in jail. If he would have come into my home, I would have bashed all of their heads and made sure they were dead before they came back out./
