CNN Contributor Suspended After Exposing Himself During Zoom Call

That’s a BIG oops.

In a year where nothing seems to make a whole lot of sense, perhaps it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.

We are living more and more of our lives in the digital realm these days, thanks to the continuing threat posed by the global coronavirus pandemic.  This is a big adjustment for many of us, who were perhaps a little nervous about the idea of always being in front of some camera, somewhere in the past.  Now, we can’t avoid it.

This is another level of awareness that we need to keep in order to prevent ourselves from falling into embarrassing situations.

One of CNN’s most frequent contributors is learning this lesson the hard way this week.

New Yorker suspended staff writer Jeffrey Toobin over an alleged Zoom incident where he exposed his penis.

Vice reported on Monday that the magazine is investigating an incident where the genitalia of CNN’s chief legal analyst was seen by members of the New Yorker and WNYC radio during a Zoom call last week.

“Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter,” a spokesperson for the New Yorker confirmed to Fox News.

Toobin has maintained that this was simply a mistake.

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers,” Toobin said in a statement to Motherboard. “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.”

CNN also confirmed that Toobin was out for the foreseeable future while dealing with a “personal” issue.
