They weren’t wrong when they said that video calls could catch you off guard and put you in the most awkward situation and it is certainly what has happened with Jeffrey Toobin. Toobin is an American lawyer, writer, author, and currently serves as the staff writer for The New York Magazine. And in a bizarre incident, the 60-year-old has been suspended by The New Yorker after the latter exposed himself during a Zoom call last week with employees of the magazine and WNYC radio, according to two people familiar with the call.
Toobin Touched Himself During The Zoom Call!
According to the people involved in the call, Jeffrey Toobin touched himself (masturbated) while the call was in progress. Staff writers at The New Yorker and employees from WNYC, which jointly produce the magazine’s podcast, we’re on a joint video call prepping for election night coverage, according to Vice, which first reported the episode. During a pause in the call for breakout discussions, Mr. Toobin switched to a second call that was the video-call equivalent of phone sex, according to the two people familiar with the call, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Asked Monday afternoon about reports that he had exposed himself, Mr. Toobin said in a statement:
“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he added. “I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me.”
When asked by email on Monday evening about the nature of the second call, Mr. Toobin, 60, declined to comment further. A spokeswoman for The New Yorker, where Mr. Toobin has worked for more than 25 years, said in a statement that Mr. Toobin “has been suspended while we investigate the matter.”
All the while, participants continued as if nothing were wrong, one person on the call said. When Mr. Toobin rejoined, he was unaware of what had just happened, this person said.
