According to The New York Post:
Writer Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended by The New Yorker — because he exposed himself on a Zoom call between magazine colleagues and WNYC workers, a report said Monday.
Toobin told Vice in a statement: “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
A spokeswoman for the magazine said, “Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter.”
Sources told the website that the suspension stemmed from Toobin — a Harvard Law School grad who also serves as CNN’s chief legal analyst — showing his privates during the online meeting.
Toobin is also a prolific author who has written about things from the Supreme Court to the U.S. presidency.
