CNN Analyst Suspended after Exposing himself on Zoom

Jeffrey Toobin, CNN’s chief legal analyst and a reporter for The New Yorker, is in hot water with both employers after he reportedly exposed himself during a Zoom call.

While it’s unclear when the incident happened, The New Yorker on Monday announced Toobin has been suspended while the incident is “investigated.” Shortly afterward, a rep for CNN revealed, “Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.”

For his part, Toobin — who showed off his private parts to his coworkers — says it was an accident. “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” he says. “I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video. I apologize to my wife, family, friends, and co-workers.”

If this was truly an accident, are Toobin’s employers overreacting? Have you done anything to embarrass yourself during a Zoom meeting or virtual classes?
