Will Twitter still ban you for telling a laid-off journalist to learn to code? Because CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin is reporting Wednesday that he’s been let go after serving 27 years as a staff writer at the New Yorker. He actually managed to hang in there for quite a while, seeing as he was suspended Oct. 19 for masturbating during a Zoom call with members of the New Yorker staff and WNYC radio.
I was fired today by @NewYorker 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.

We won’t miss Toobin, and we wouldn’t want to miss any of these puns:
a real dick move tbh

You need to get a grip on things..

I'm sure you will rise to the occasion.

That sounds like a cockup. Stiff upper lip, old chap.

Guess @JeffreyToobin ’s career died by his own hand
(Yeah, it‘s a cheap shot but couldn’t resist)

Have always enjoyed your work and have missed your perspective on the election on @CNN. Gutted they’ve given you the shaft.

Must have seen it coming?

It must suck getting shafted like that.

Keep cranking it out sir

Another lefty rag will hire you. Keep your pants on…

Don't beat yourself off over it! You just gotta put yourself right back out there and show the world what you've got to offer. Show them that deep inside, you've got the spunk it takes to make it in this crazy, mixed up world!

Shouldn’t spank it during meetings my dude

can't believe they're jerking you around like this

Hard times and stiff competition.

Certainly not the climax to 2020 you were hoping for

Thank you for exposing all this. I hope you told those jerks off

Id ask if you got any severance but afraid to see your package

I mean, did they give *any* kind of reason????
— Stephe96 (@Stephe96) November 11, 2020
Feels like a snap judgment to me – loyal employees can’t get rubbed out like this – they just whack people off at the first sign of adversity and jerk them around
— BaldEagleJonesJr (@DeetzNutz2) November 11, 2020
Hard times Jeff. CNN has no standards though so they’ll probably still let you on air. If that’s the case you’re really getting off easy.

I'm glad because I do not want this to be normalized. Masturbating on a video meeting for work is not normal or welcome. Good luck.

Vox journo doesn’t get what all the FUSS is about with Jeffrey Toobin masturbating during a Zoom work meeting (Twitter educates him, lol) https://t.co/ltXH9uJGkQ
