Jeffrey Toobin Apologizes for Video Incident
On Tuesday, Jeffrey Toobin, the Chief Legal Analyst for CNN, issued an apology for an incident that occurred last month. Toobin had been suspended from the network after a video surfaced showing him exposing himself during a Zoom call with colleagues.
In a statement, Toobin said he was “profoundly sorry” for the incident and accepted full responsibility for his actions. He went on to say that he had “made an embarrassingly stupid mistake,” and that he was “deeply sorry.”
Toobin had been on a Zoom call with colleagues from The New Yorker magazine, where he is also a staff writer. During the call, he exposed himself and began pleasuring himself. He has since said that he thought the video was off, and that he was unaware that he was being recorded.
The incident had sparked widespread criticism, with some calling for Toobin to be fired from both CNN and The New Yorker. However, CNN decided to suspend him instead, and The New Yorker placed him on leave.
Now, Toobin has been reinstated at The New Yorker, and is expected to return to CNN soon. In his apology, he said he was “grateful” for the second chance, and promised to “be more mindful and respectful in my virtual interactions.”
Toobin is a well-known legal analyst and commentator, and has been a part of the CNN team since 2002. He is also the author of several books, including “The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court” and “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
Despite the incident, Toobin’s career appears to be intact. He has apologized for his mistake, and it seems that both CNN and The New Yorker are willing to give him a second chance. While the incident was certainly embarrassing, it appears that Toobin will be able to put it behind him and move on with his career.
