Jeffrey Toobin Breaks Silence After Video Incident


On Tuesday, Jeffrey Toobin, the New Yorker writer and CNN legal analyst, broke his silence after a video incident that led to his suspension from the magazine and his leave of absence from the network.

Toobin was suspended from The New Yorker and took a leave of absence from CNN after a video surfaced of him exposing himself during a Zoom call with colleagues. In a statement to Motherboard, Toobin apologized for his actions and said he was embarrassed and deeply sorry.

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

Toobin also said that he believed he was not visible on the Zoom call, but he was wrong and that he had “no defense” for his behavior. He said he was “deeply sorry” for what he had done.

Toobin’s statement comes after a week of speculation about what happened on the Zoom call. According to reports, Toobin was on a Zoom call with colleagues from The New Yorker and WNYC radio when he exposed himself.

The incident has been widely condemned and has led to calls for Toobin to be fired from both The New Yorker and CNN. It also sparked a larger conversation about the need for greater accountability for those in positions of power.

Toobin’s statement did not address whether he will be returning to The New Yorker or CNN. It is unclear if either outlet will take any further action against him.

For now, it appears that Toobin is trying to move on from the incident and is hoping to put it behind him. His statement was a first step in that process.
