AceShowbiz - Try Guys talked about their co-founder Ned Fulmer's cheating scandal in a new video. In the YouTube video, which was shared on Monday, October 3, the remaining members, Eugene Lee, Keith Habersberger and Zach Kornfeld, claimed that they found out about Ned's infidelity four weeks before they announced his firing.

In the video, the three comedians shared that they no longer were to be associated with Ned, who was fired on September 16. "Ned Fulmer is no longer working with the 'Try Guys,' " Zach, who sat on a couch alongside Keith and Eugene, said in the video which was titled "what happened".

"By now, we're assuming you've seen the Reddit threads and TikToks and tweets and news articles. We want to give you a timeline of what's transpired and some transparency into our decision-making," he continued.

Keith later added, "On Labor Day weekend, multiple fans alerted us that they had seen Ned and an employee engaging in public romantic behavior." He also shared that they reached out to the employee to "check on" her before Ned "confirmed the reports and since confirmed this had been going on for some time, which was obviously, very shocking for us."

"We just want you to know that we had no idea this was going on," he added. "All of that information was just as shocking to us as this has been for you this week."

As for Eugene, the 36-year-old YouTuber revealed that they spent three weeks talking to various lawyers, human resources and public relations experts to "make sure" they were taking the necessary steps.

"We were acutely aware of just how contrary this was to the values of the company we've built and those of everyone who works here," he continued as he was trying to compose himself. "This is something that we take very seriously and we refuse to sweep under the rug, that is now who we are and that is not what we stand for."

It was also said that they "signed written consent approving the removal of Ned as manager and employee," on September 16. Try Guys also removed Ned from their merch store and will digitally erase him from old videos, as well as any marketing products.

The team mentioned that their decision to completely scrap some videos where Ned was heavily featured "cost" them a lot of money. Despite that, they stand by their decision "proudly."

Keith also shared that it was hard for them to make the matters public, but they were left with no choice after the pics and videos of Ned and Alexandria Herring surfaced.

"We are incredibly shocked and deeply hurt by all of this," Eugene added, holding back tears. "This is someone that we built a company and brand with for eight years. We feel saddened - not just personally but on behalf of our staff and fans that believed in us."

Zach tearfully said, "I don't know that we can articulate the pain we feel at this moment. It's hard to rewatch old videos that we love and are proud of, we are losing a friend, someone who we built a company with, have countless of memories with […] We are sorry this ever happened and we don't know what else to say."

He continued, "This will change here, but we hope that within this, there's opportunity for positive growth and better videos ahead, but it's going to be hard. This whole thing is going to be f**king hard." Eugene then asked fans for their "exercise kindness."

Last week, Try Guys announced that Ned was fired after he was caught cheating on his wife of 10 years with Alexander. "Ned Fulmer is no longer working with The Try Guys. 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," the announcement read on September 27.

Ned and his wife Ariel, meanwhile, were later spotted in Los Angeles. Even though they didn't show any PDA, Ariel told TMZ that they're "working on working things out" between them.
