Try Guys try to get in on the social media joke after Ned Fulmer scandal

Los Angeles, California - Following their very formal video addressing Ned Fulmer's firing, the Try Guys are now taking a very different approach to the cheating scandal.

The remaining members of the Try Guys – Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang – are trying to get in on the joke with their most recent social media posts.

After breaking their silence on the viral scandal with a fairly stiff and surprisingly emotional explanation video, the Try Guys are changing up their tone and revealing how they really feel amid the fallout.

On TikTok, the group shared a video with the caption "What we wanted to say last week" in which Habersberger and Kornfeld simply start screaming in an open field. The pair then approach the camera to reveal Yang on FaceTime, sipping a cup of tea, before the video cuts out.

Yang's tea-sipping is a clear nod to the buzz on social media about his shady facial expressions in the explanation video. Some even went so far as to compare his all-black look to Princess Diana's iconic revenge dress.

The Try Guys' attempt to play along with the joke is probably a smart move, given the absurdly massive reaction to the affair.

The intensity with which the group responded to Fulmer's cheating allegations took many on the internet by surprise. Sure, the star was always going to get fired for having an affair with an employee. But the Try Guys' intense responses, complete with tearful lamentations at the loss of a friend, felt pretty uncomfortable to watch.

Kornfeld, who was visibly emotional in the explanation video, recently changed up his tone with a candid perspective on Twitter. He retweeted a fan's reply to the video that read "you know it's serious cause they made the little one grow facial hair."

The YouTuber also hilariously acknowledged just how viral the scandal is, tweeting "Opening twitter for some lolz but every tweet is about me."

The group's now-apparent comfort in laughing at themselves is refreshing within the constant cycle of celebrity scandals. Though the situation is undoubtedly heartbreaking for Fulmer's family, the way netizens acted as private investigators to find evidence of the allegations is somewhat hilarious.

Yang also provided some commentary on the viral reactions to Fulmer's firing, but he decided to take a comparatively more serious approach.

The initial round of tweets reacting to Fulmer's infidelity included several commenting in surprise that the Try Guys were not all gay (Yang is the only openly gay member of the group).

Yang condemned this "anti-queer rhetoric" in a tweet on Thursday, writing that "'I thought they were all gay' is not the insult you think it is."

Though the internet will probably forget the scandal soon, at least the Try Guys might just the last laugh after this huge boost in attention.
