CNN is facing backlash after welcoming back legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin only months after he was caught masturbating on Zoom during a working meeting.
Toobin went viral around eight months after a video of him being caught masturbating by his coworkers in a Zoom work meeting was leaked to the press.
Toobin publically apologised for his actions at the time.
According to Foxnews, The New Yorker took immediate action and suspended Toobin from his long-term role as a reporter, before later firing him.
However, CNN did not follow suit. Instead, they gave Toobin an extended leave of absence and now have appeared to have embraced the legal analyst’s return.
Toobin made his awkward return to CNN last week where, according to the New York Post, he referred to his masturbation incident as “moronic and indefensible”.
The legal analyst later referred to being fired by The New Yorker as “excessive.”
Toobin’s return has sparked outrage on Twitter, even Donald Trump Jr is angry.
Imagine any other network putting Jeffrey Toobin back on air after being caught masturbating on a corporate zoom call?
Yea, me neither, but CNN is totally good with it. I guess their prospects for talent are as bad as their ratings.

CNN is so desperate for viewers that they hired Jeffrey Toobin back just hoping he’ll expose himself for ratings.🤦🏾♀️

Fox News reported that Toobin has since been spotted out partying with his CNN coworkers in New York.
