What You Need to Know About the Try Guys Statement
Saturday Night Live sparked a debate online after parodying the internet's hottest topic no one can escape right now: Ned Fulmer's cheating scandal.
YouTube collective, the Try Guys, booted Fulmer from the group after learning about his "consensual workplace relationship" with one of the producers on their show.
After alleged photos surfaced online of Fulmer with another woman, he released statement, reading: "Family should have always been my priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship."
"I'm sorry for any pain my actions 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 my attention."
Viewers of the show turned to social media, with one saying the skit "started funny", but the writer "missed the whole ‘Ned nearly destroyed the entire company and risked getting them sued for sexual misconduct’ angle."
Another added: "I love that SNL is essentially mocking a group of men for taking sexual misconduct at work seriously and actually firing someone for it. It started funny but really went downhill when it became apparent what a toxic take they had on the whole thing. SNL really missed the mark on this one and should be embarrassed to have posted it on YouTube."
In the Try Guys' recent YouTube video addressing "what happened," the remaining three said they were experimenting with "creative ways" to remove Fulmer from their content, before sharing: "We refused to sweep things under the rug. That is not who we are and is not what we stand for."
