This shocking announcement comes as many people across the internet wondered what was next for the group after a reddit thread appeared showing that Fulmer had not been present in the main videos on the YouTube channel. The channel, with over 7.8 million subscribers , started as a Buzzfeed original and had so much success that the group left for their own endeavors.
The Try Guys Fulmer, Eugene Lee Yang, Keith Habersberger and Zach Kornfeld had been making videos for years complete with merchandise and apparel that had viral mainstream success. The group even hosted events like the Streamys.
Shortly after this post went up the accounts, Ned responded to the allegations.
