New Yorker Suspends Jeffrey Toobin For Allegedly Masturbating on Zoom Call

The New Yorker Magazine has suspended one of its long-standing staff members, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, when reviewing a story that he reportedly masturbated on a Zoom *** call earlier this month. 

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” Toobin said in a comment on the situation on Monday, first stated by Vice. 

He said, “I apologise to my wife, family, friends and colleagues. I thought I had muted the Zoom recording, I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. 

He has so far failed to confirm the information.

Toobin is one of the most well-known media legal analysts in the US. He has has worked for the New Yorker for more than 25 years, and is is also a senior legal analyst at CNN.

A spokeswoman for the magazine said in a statement that Toobin “has been suspended while we investigate the matter”.

In an email to staffers, New Yorker editor David Remnick wrote : “Dear All, As you may have read in various news reports today, one of our writers, Jeff Toobin, was suspended after an incident on a Zoom call last week. Please be assured that we take such matters seriously and that we are looking into it.”

CNN issued a statement saying that Toobin “has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted”.
