You know what they say: Hell hath no fury like Eugene Lee Yang in that Try Guys video... If you know, you know.

Yesterday (Oct 4), The Try Guys released a video statement addressing what they had to say in regards to ex-member Ned Fulmer's cheating scandal, and the complete removal of him from the group. In the video, they explain that Ned was immediately removed from all work activities when they found out, and an HR professional was brought in to conduct a review.

The Try Guys also confirmed that they would be digitally removing and editing Ned out of their videos. "There are several videos that we’ve deemed as fully unreleasable. You will never see them and that is due to his involvement," they added.

The response to the video has been huge. Fans have praised Eugene Lee Yang, Zach Kornfeld and Keith Habersberger for their honest, emotional and angry statement, while also commenting on how awful the entire situation is for everyone involved.

Aaaand because it's the internet... there's plenty of memes about it too.

"The fact that the #tryguys refused to sweep anything under the rug just because he was their friend makes me respect Eugene, Zach and Keith 100000% more. I will continue to support and watch the videos in this new era of the Try Guy," one user wrote.

Another added: "Tbh I have a lot of respect for Keith, Zach, and Eugene for not defending Ned in the slightest way even if they were friends for so long cuz so many people don’t want to accept that their friend is in the wrong and call them out".

Others have also commented on how strong their statement was from a PR perspective, with one person writing: "Not #tryguys putting out a better apology for something they didn't do, than most of the creators that have done one."

As well as the praise, there was also hundreds of savage memes from fans reacting to the whole thing. From Eugene's furious vibe to the removal of Ned from the videos, here are some of the funniest tweets.

Memes about Ned being completely edited out of videos quickly spread over social media.

(And fans offered their suggestions on how to combat the videos where he was unable to be removed.)

Fans thought Keith looked disappointed and disgusted in the video...

...while Zach was clearly very emotional...

And then Eugene? Impeccably dressed Eugene was straight up furious at the entire situation – and fans couldn't help but notice.

The Try Guys themselves have also begun meme-ing their own video response with a TikTok video captioned "What we wanted to say last week".

The video shows Keith and Zach, with Eugene on FaceTime, running out into a field and screaming at the top of their lungs. As they return back to the camera, they hold up Eugene on the phone as he loudly sips a cup of tea.
