During our class on social media policies and discussion on transparency, I had one news event fresh in my head the entire time. If you don’t know the Try Guys, you might now after all the news and social backlash involving Ned Fulmer. I don’t really like going too much into the gossip of things, so if you need a quick refresher of what happened you can read about it here: https://time.com/6219728/try-guys-what-happened-ned-fulmer/
What I really wanted discuss was how the Try Guys (Keith, Eugene, and Zack) applied good practice in being transparent about the recent events and what they plan to do from there. Though they had planned for about a month now on what they were going to do about the situation in their own pace, because of the social media pressure they were ultimately forced to act quickly. Instead of being quiet, the Try Guys announced that they had fired Ned Fulmer and later posted this video:
People on social media everywhere are applauding the Try Guys and their team for how they handled the situation. It’s a bit rare to see negative events be handled so smoothly. I’m wondering what everyone’s thoughts are on the video and how the situation was handled. Personally, I was not surprised that the team was able to handle it in this manner, as they’re always vocal about their policies and their beliefs on how to handle situations like this- but it was definitely a first for me.
