New Yorker fires Jeffrey Toobin for masturbating on office zoom call

admin | November 12, 2020

Jeffrey Toobin has been sacked by New Yorker magazine after he masturbated on a staff Zoom call.

 

The New Yorker’s parent company Conde Nast wrote in an email to staff: “I want to assure everyone that we take workplace matters seriously.”

After he was suspended last month Mr Toobin said he had believed himself to be off-camera during the incident.

Vice News, which broke the initial story, reported that senior colleagues had seen Mr Toobin masturbating while apparently on a separate video call.

The incident happened on 15 October during an election simulation involving the New Yorker and WNYC radio. Mr Toobin was immediately suspended.

In a statement to Vice last month, he said: “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera.”

He apologised to his family, friends and colleagues.

“I believed I was not visible on Zoom,” he told Vice. “I thought no-one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”
