Toobin announced his dismissal in a message posted on Twitter on Wednesday: “Today I was fired by the New Yorker after 27 years as a writer. I will always love the magazine, I will miss my colleagues and I look forward to reading their work “.

A spokesman for The New Yorker confirmed Toobin’s dismissal. “As a result of our investigation, Jeffrey Toobin is no longer affiliated with the company.”

On October 19, it was revealed that The New Yorker suspended Toobin after he exposed his private parts during a Zoom meeting with members of the New Yorker team and from WNYC radio. According to the Motherboard site, Toobin is masturbating.

Following the incident, a CNN spokesman said Toobin was on vacation. For now, it is unclear at what stage his relationship with the television network is.

“I made a shameful and stupid mistake, thinking the camera wasn’t on. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and colleagues. I thought I didn’t see Zoom. I thought no one in the Zoom meeting saw me. I thought I turned off the sound of the video on Zoom, “he said at the time.

Toobin wrote the book “The Run of His Life: The People v. OJ Simpson” (1996), which was later adapted into an FX series, under the name “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.”
