"ZOOM masturbator" Jeffrey Toobin said he's been FIRED from The New Yorker after he allegedly "exposed himself on video call with colleagues."
"I was fired today by @NewYorker after 27 years as a Staff Writer," CNN pundit Toobin wrote.
"I will always love the magazine, will miss my colleagues, and will look forward to reading their work."
It was first revealed in a Vice article on October 19 that Toobin was suspended after he was allegedly caught masturbating while on a Zoom call with coworkers.
In addition to working as a staff writer for The New Yorker, Toobin also worked as an analyst for CNN.
Multiple sources said they saw Toobin masturbating while on a Zoom call with the magazine and WNYC radio.
After it was revealed Toobin allegedly exposed himself, he apologized, dubbing it a "mistake" as he claimed he "believed I was not visible on Zoom.
"I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera," Toobin told Vice's Motherboard.
"I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
He added: "I believed I was not visible on Zoom.
"I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video."
As Toobin's masturbation scandal emerged, the hashtag "#MeToobin" began trending on social media.
Users shared their experiences of workplace harassment and criticized Toobin's actions under the hashtag.
