(bigleaguepolitics)Jeffrey Toobin is known for his New Yorker writing and CNN commentating.
Jeffrey Toobin is much better known as that guy who masturbated on a Zoom call back in mid-October.
Upon conclusion of an investigation, The New Yorker has decided to fire Toobin. CNN had previously suspended him from any on air appearances.
Toobin tweeted Wednesday evening: “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.”

I want to assure everyone that we take workplace matters seriously. We are committed to fostering an environment where everyone feels respected and upholds our standards of conduct.”
