The Try Guys, a popular YouTube channel with nearly 8 million subscribers has booted co-creator and executive producer Ned Fulmer as the star admitted to an extramarital relationship.
“Ned Fulmer is no longer working with The Try Guys,” the group announced in a tweet on Tuesday. “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 statement comes after cheating allegations surrounding Fulmer went viral on social media. The comedian who is one-fourth of the Try Guys branded himself as a devoted husband and even co-authored a cookbook with his wife, Ariel Fulmer, entitled The Date Night Cookbook. His Instagram bio includes the label, “Ariel Fulmer’s Husband.”
Fulmer admitted to having an affair on his own Twitter account on Tuesday, writing, “Family should always have been my priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship. 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 my attention.”
Ariel Fulmer said on her Instagram account, “Thanks to everyone who has reached out to me—it means a lot. Nothing is more important to me and Ned than our family, and all we request right now is that you respect our privacy for the sake of our kids.”
Newsweek reached out to The Try Guys for comment.
