The Try Guys are working to distance themselves from former member Ned Fulmer.

The remaining three members of the viral video’s team, Eugene Lee Yang, Zach Kornfeld and Keith Habersberger, took to YouTube on Monday to discuss ways to part ways with Fulmer, who last week admitted to a “consensual workplace relationship” and publicly apologized to her. wife.

“From the start we were very aware of how contrary to the values ​​of the company we have built and of everyone who works here. This is something we took very seriously,” Yang said, sounding excited. “We refused to sweep things under the rug. That’s not who we are and that’s not what we stand for.”

Fulmer – whose relationship with his wife, Ariel, and raising their two young sons became part of his brand – was the subject of allegedly unfaithful chatter on Reddit.

After being fired from the band, publishing a best-selling book in addition to his videos, and launching the Food Network series “No Recipe Road Trip with the Try Guys,” Fulmer said he would focus on his family.

“I’m sorry for the pain my actions may have caused the boys and the fans, but especially Ariel,” he wrote in a statement posted on social media. “The only thing that matters right now is my marriage and my kids, and that’s where I’m going to focus.”

The team now plans to remove Fulmer from the videos when possible, they shared.

“There are several videos that we have deemed completely unreleaseable,” Kornfeld said in a YouTube post on Monday. “You’ll never see them, and that’s because of his involvement.”

According to Yang, an internal investigation into the allegations was conducted and the trio said they were as shocked as fans to learn of Fulmer’s extramarital affair and hurt.

“I don’t know that we’ll ever be able to fully express the pain that we feel at this point,” Kornfeld said. “It’s hard to re-watch old videos that we love and are proud of. We are losing a friend, we are losing someone we built a company with, we have countless memories.”

CNN has attempted to reach Fulmer for comment.
