The Try Guys are "incredibly shocked and deeply hurt" over the way Ned Fulmer exited the group.
In a video published Monday, three-fourths of The Try Guys — Eugene Lee Yang, Keith Habersberger and Zach Kornfield
spoke out on camera for the first time since Fulmer exited the YouTube channel following an internal review of what he said was a "consensual workplace relationship."
"As a result of a thorough internal review, we do not see a path forward together," read a Sept. 27 statement posted to the official @tryguys Instagram account. "We thank you for your support as we navigate this change."
Yang, Habersberger and Kornfield "wanted to give (fans) a timeline on what's transpired and some transparency into our decision making."
Kornfield added that throughout the YouTube video posted Monday, "there will be things that we want to say or go into further" but there are "some legal issues we have to consider as we go through everything."
Habersberger said "multiple fans alerted" them on Labor Day weekend that Fulmer had been spotted with an employee "engaging in public romantic behavior.
" He added Fulmer "confirmed the reports" and also confirmed "that this had been going on for some time." He continued: "We had no idea this was going on."
"Family should have always been my priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship," Fulmer wrote. "I'm sorry for any pain that my actions may have caused to the guys and the fans but most of all to Ariel. The only thing that matters right now is my marriage and my children, and that's where I am going to focus attention."
