Eleven days later, when the Try Guys publicly announced that they had parted ways with Ned, he released his own 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 that my action 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.”
The Try Guys said in their new video that they were “incredibly shocked and deeply hurt” by how things played out, with Zach saying, “We feel saddened not just personally, but on behalf of our staff and our fans who believed in us. I don’t know that we’ll ever be able to fully articulate the pain.”
Moving forward, Ned will be edited out of footage that the group had shot prior to his exit, according to the Try Guys. The group also said that they have also deemed several videos as “fully unrelease-able” due to Ned’s involvement in them.
