For masturbating on live zoom, New Yorker fires a prominent staff writer!

 


The popular saying that goes, “Every day for a thief; but one day for the owner”, has caught-up with Jeffrey Toobin, a Staff Writer with New Yorker magazine and other main stream media outlets, who was caught masturbating while on live zoom call! The act is despicable and very shameful to say the least. How on earth does a renowned figure of Jeffrey’s caliber slip like that? 

His explanation that he thought he was muted and the camera turned off cannot justify his shameful display. Masturbation is not what you perform before a camera that is alive or dead; not to mention when you are discussing with colleagues, people, and the world watching! No wonder Conde Nast Chief, Stan Duncan wastes no time sending an internal memo to the staff, warning them that Jeffrey is no longer part of the game for them. 

Although Jeffrey later described his misdemeanor as ‘embarrassingly stupid’, New Yorker that had earlier suspended him, upgraded his suspension to an outright sack. CNN also followed suit by suspending Jeffrey.

Jeffrey’s case is an obsession that ran out of control. It is a great lesson to those that use electronic gadgets to commit evils not to be too confident of covering their tracks all the time, for as can see, one little slip, can spill out many unpleasant worms. What do you think?
