Journalist fired for masturbating on live broadcast
An American Journalist fired for masturbating during an official video call
Author and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin has been fired by The New Yorker, where he had written for nearly 3 decades, over his error during a Zoom call.
According to reports,last month,Toobin, who works with CNN also, exposed himself on a Zoom call with New Yorker staffers as well as folks from WNYC radio.
He was masturbating during the official call and later said he thought he was muted and his camera was off. He called the incident “embarrassingly stupid.”
He has now been fired. An internal memo from Conde Nast chief Stan Duncan was sent to staffers this week, letting them know that as a result of their investigation, Toobin was no longer affiliated with the company.
