*Author and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended by The New Yorker for masturbating on a Zoom video chat between staffers and WNYC radio last week.

Toobin says he did not realize his video was on.

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

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

As noted by vice.com, Toobin’s Conde Nast email has been disabled and he is also taking some time from CNN as the network’s chief legal analyst.

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