    The New Yorker has suspended journalist Jeffrey Toobin after a Zoom incident the staff writer claims happened by "mistake."

    The publication took action after the lawyer and author, who is also CNN's chief legal analyst, exposed his genitals during a virtual meeting last week with staffers from the New Yorker and WNYC radio, according to a Monday report from Vice.

    “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera," Toobin said in a statement to Vice. "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."

    Upon Toobin's suspension, a spokesperson for the New Yorker told Vice that the media outlet is investigating the situation. Toobin joined the New Yorker in 1993.
