Following the release of the video, Johnson received extreme criticism. He issued a public apology. Johnson canceled his tour and departed from The Gus & Eddy Podcast. 

His statement wrote, "I am aware of the recent video that calls out some actions that I’m not proud of and I want to apologize. The circumstances were extremely hard and complicated for both of us, but I can't even begin to imagine how difficult it was for her. We were young and not remotely prepared to deal with all the realities of a long-lasting and traumatic medical situation. During the talks, counseling, and therapy we went through together following this time, I came to grips with my behavior and recognized my shortcomings, and I would like her to know just how deeply sorry I am. I fully realize what I did wrong, and wish I could change how I responded and acted during that time. I've grown a great deal since that happened and I wish I knew then what I know now. I will continue to grow and learn, and strive to be a better person every day. At this time, I am stepping away from the podcast and the remainder of this year's live shows will be cancelled with full refunds being issued. I will also be taking some time off from posting and working for a while."
