The Island Boys Reveal Their Childhood "Wasn't Simple" Amid Criticism
| Last updated
The Island Boys have revealed that their childhood “wasn’t simple” amid criticism following a recently resurfaced video of one of the brothers crying, which went viral.
Venegas replied, stating: “I would say half and half, depending. When I had my own freedom it was good, but you know when I had to listen to people and stuff like that, it wasn’t that simple.”
He continued: “So me having my own freedom, it was simple because I got to do whatever I want. I would say I was pretty wild as a child, other than that, I wouldn’t say it was that hard.”
“I think it got harder as I turned into an adult but was it hard when I was growing up? For sure, I didn’t know who I wanted to be and I couldn’t fit in with the good kids. I was always wondering why am I not good? Why am I always getting into some type of trouble? And stuff like that,” he revealed.
Take a look at the video below:
The conversation about his childhood comes as the Island Boys were recently criticised for a resurfaced video, in which one of the Island Boys were reported to assault a woman and then began crying after she retaliated.
Fans took to the comments section of Venegas’ most recent video, writing comments like “I’m a cryland boy” in order to tease the TikToker for the resurfaced clip.
Others wrote, “who saw the vid of him crying” while another asked, “so is it you or your brother who hit that girl and then started crying when she hit you back”.
The resurfaced has since been removed from TikTok.
The two men behind the viral fame have previously been revealed to have a fairly serious criminal history.
Speaking on the No Jumper podcast, Alex explained how he and his fraternal twin would always get into trouble with the law while they were growing up in Florida.
They revealed on the podcast that they had charges related to burglary, robbery, and drugs.
