Praise be to Allaah.

If the situation is as described and he mentions him so as to warn people against his evil so that those who do not know about him will not be deceived by him, it is permissible, but if it is only done for fun and to pass the time and so on then it is not permissible. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
