NEW YORK (AP) — The New Yorker has fired staff writer Jeffrey Toobin after he reportedly exposed himself during a Zoom conference last month. He had already been on suspension and is also on leave from CNN, where he has been a legal commentator.

The magazine announced Wednesday that “as a result of our investigation, Jeffrey Toobin is no longer affiliated with the company." Toobin confirmed his firing in a tweet. Toobin had been with the New Yorker for more than 20 years.

He wrote about everything from the O.J. Simpson murder trial to the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump.
