The famous comedy group The Try Guys parted ways with one of the group’s four founding members, Ned Fulmer after he acknowledged having a “consensual” workplace affair.
The Try Guys announced the news in a tweet on Tuesday that Ned Fulmer will no longer be working with the group. “Ned Fulmer is no longer working with The Try Guys,” the group said. “As a result of a thorough internal review, we do not see a path forward together. We thank you for your support as we navigate this change.”
A statement that Fulmer made on Twitter immediately after the revelation made by the Try Guys seemed to confirm suspicions that had been circulating on social media that he had been involved in an affair outside of his marriage.
“Family should have always been my priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship,” Fulmer said in the Tweet. “I’m sorry for any pain that my actions may have caused to the guys and the fans but most of all to Ariel,” he stated, referring to his wife.
Fulmer added, “The only thing that matters right now is my marriage and my children, and that’s where I’m going to focus my attention.”
In an Instagram post, Ariel Fulmer wrote, “Thanks to everyone who has reached out to me — it means a lot. Nothing is more important to me and Ned than our family, and all we request right now is that you respect our privacy for the sake of our kids.”
Since Fulmer has left the group, The Try Guys will now consist of its surviving three members: Eugene Lee Yang, Zach Kornfeld, and Keith Habersberger. The Try Guys are known for their trademark willingness to try just about anything. On their YouTube channel, The Try Guys presently have 7.8 million followers.
