Author and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin just got canned by The New Yorker — the magazine where he’s written for nearly 3 decades — over his faux pas of a Zoom call.
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.
As for exactly why they fired him — the email, posted by The Daily Beast, said Conde Nast takes these types of situations seriously, and are committed to maintaining an environment that upholds their standards.
You’ll recall, Toobin was suspended by the New Yorker — not to mention CNN — for exposing himself on a Zoom call with New Yorker staffers as well as folks from WNYC radio. Toobin called the incident “embarrassingly stupid.” He was allegedly masturbating, and insists he thought he was muted and his camera was off.
Toobin confirmed he’d gotten the axe as well, tweeting … “I was fired today by @NewYorker after 27 years as a Staff Writer. I will always love the magazine, will miss my colleagues, and will look forward to reading their work.” Toobin started working for TNY in ’93.
No word if CNN will be showing Toobin the door too … stay tuned.
