Jeffrey Toobin has been fired by The New Yorker following an investigation into last month’s incident in which he exposed himself on a work Zoom call.
On Oct. 19, it was revealed that The New Yorker had suspended Toobin after he exposed himself on a Zoom call with New Yorker staffers and the radio station WNYC. According to Vice’s tech news website Motherboard, Toobin was allegedly masturbating during the call.
Toobin is also a chief legal analyst at CNN, and though he was granted time off following the incident, it remains unclear what his job status is at the network.
I was fired today by @NewYorker after 27 years as a Staff Writer. I will always love the magazine, will miss my colleagues, and will look forward to reading their work.
