Former CNN regular Jeffrey Toobin has been permanently fired from his position at the New Yorker after an investigation into the call where he masturbated during a company zoom call.
Last month he was suspended.
In a memo published by the Daily Beast, Stan Duncan, Condé Nast’s chief people officer wrote to all staff “I am writing to share with you that our investigation regarding Jeffrey Toobin is complete, and as a result, he is no longer affiliated with our company.”
“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,” the memo added.
A CNN spokesperson said last month “Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.”
Toobin admitted the humiliating act and said in a statement he “made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” adding, “I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom,” he explained “I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”
