The staff writer was fired after 27 years with the magazine for reportedly exposing himself during a Zoom meeting.

The New Yorker is parting ways with staff writer Jeffrey Toobin after an internal investigation over his now-infamous Zoom incident, in which he reportedly exposed himself to colleagues when he thought the camera was off.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Condé Nast publication told The Hollywood Reporter: “As a result of our investigation, Jeffrey Toobin is no longer affiliated with the company.”

Toobin, who is also a CNN legal analyst, tweeted Wednesday afternoon that "I was fired today by  [The New Yorker] after 27 years as a staff writer. I will always love the magazine, will miss my colleagues, and will look forward to reading their work."

A CNN spokesperson told CNN after the initial incident that Toobin requested time off "while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.”
