CNN Analyst Jeffrey Toobin Suspended By New Yorker After Seen Performing Lewd Act In Zoom Call, Report Says
Jeffrey Toobin, a staff writer for the New Yorker and frequent CNN analyst, has been suspended by the magazine after he was seen “masturbating on a Zoom video chat last week,” Vice reported on Monday. Citing two sources “who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak freely,” Vice said “it was unclear how much each individual person on the call saw, but both of the people we spoke to said that they saw Toobin” masturbating. Toobin said it was all an accident. “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers,” he said in a statement to Vice.
