24 Reactions To The Try Guys' "What Happened" Video That Range From "If Looks Could Kill" To Eugene's "Revenge" Outfit

By now, you've likely either recently learned who the Try Guys are or are fully aware of the ongoings after one member, Ned Fulmer, admitted to having “a consensual workplace relationship” and was subsequently booted from the YouTube group. Or you've been a longtime viewer and you're now riding a roller coaster of shock that peaked when photos of Ned allegedly kissing the colleague first went viral.

Either way, it's been a whirlwind that has consumed the internet for the past week, and now that beast is being fed once again with this new drop. Last night, the remaining Try Guys — Eugene Lee Yang, Zach Kornfeld, and Keith Habersberger — released an official video explaining the situation from their perspective.

In the five-minute statement, which was uploaded less than 24 hours ago and has over 4.6 million views, the crew says they learned of Fulmer's involvement with the employee over Labor Day weekend and worked with HR to conduct an internal review. However, due to ongoing legal matters, they are unable to discuss the issue in great detail.

"Throughout this video, there will be things that we want to say or go into further, but as I'm sure you're aware, there are some legal issues we have to consider as we go through everything," Zach said.

"Thus began a three-week process of engaging with employment lawyers, corporate lawyers, HR, PR, and more," Eugene said. "From the jump, we were acutely aware of just how contrary this was to the values of the company we built and everyone who works here. This was something we took very seriously. We refused to sweep things under the rug. That is not who we are and is not what we stand for."

According to the Try Guys, Fulmer was removed from work activities during a "review of the facts" conducted by HR. He was also removed from releases, edited out of videos, and excluded from merch throws.

On Sept. 16, Eugene, Zach, and Keith signed written consent forms to approve the removal of Ned as a manager and employee.

Then, viewers couldn't get over Eugene's face, which seemed to say it all:














On a serious note, a few people pointed out how well-worded the statement was, and they praised the group for making this choice after the Guys acknowledged that the removal of Ned hurt them after spending nearly a decade making videos together:






Mostly, people hope the Try Guys and crew are OK:
