Who is The New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin and why is he trending?

NEW YORKER and CNN legal journalist Jeffrey Toobin is trending for showing his penis to his colleagues during a Zoom call.

The New Yorker has suspended him from their staff as a result of the incident.

Who is Jeffrey Toobin?

Jeffrey Toobin is a legal analyst for the New Yorker and CNN.

He graduated from Harvard Law and once served on the associate counsel in the Department of Justice.

He moved from the government to writing in the 1990s.

Toobin famously covered the OJ Simpson trial for the New Yorker and was hired as a staff writer.

He turned his coverage of the case into a book which prompted the FX series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’’ in 2016.

Why is he trending?

Toobin is trending for exposing himself on a Zoom call between magazine colleagues and WNYC radio workers.

CNN told Vice in a statement that Toobin “has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.”

Toobin’s Conde Nast email has been disabled and he has not tweeted since October 13.

Who is his wife Amy Bennett McIntosh?

Toobin married Amy Bennett McIntosh in 1986.

She was once the Associate Vice Chancellor for the City University of New York.

The two share a daughter and a son together and live in New York City.

What did he say about the incident?

Toobin told outlet Vice in a statement: “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends, and co-workers.”

“I believed I was not visible on Zoom,” he added. “I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”

A spokeswoman for the magazine said, “Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter.”

The spokesperson did not elaborate.
