After they walked off the show, their TikTok comment section was flooded with comments criticizing them for their behavior, and they responded to several of the messages with videos explaining their side.

In response to one commenter who suggested Logan “was gonna fold” them, Flyysoulja responded: “Man, stop. You know for a fact that man won’t fold me. Let’s be positive though, man. On a positive note, it was gonna be a very good podcast but someone had to ruin it by speaking nonsense.”

When someone wrote that George was just giving the boys some advice, he explained: “This is the problem. Me and you are two different people. If someone’s talking about your financials to you, it’s not a problem for you. But if someone’s talking about my financials, I don’t wanna hear it. You’re not the one that’s making me a million dollars. I made a million dollars myself.”

“Him, he ain’t never made me no million dollars. He doesn’t have to give me financial advice. Telling me to sell my jewelry that I worked so hard for and I accomplished, I don’t gotta do that. Because I make money so I don’t have to sell nothing. So, he’s wrong.”

Whether the Island Boys end up filming with the Impaulsive crew again remains to be seen, but they maintain that they were in the right for walking off set.
