The New Yorker magazine has suspended writer Jeffrey Toobin for allegedly pulling out his penis during a Zoom call, multiple outlets are reporting.

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” Toobin told Vice.

“I believed I was not visible on Zoom,” he added. “I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.” He also apologized to his wife, family, friends, and co-workers.

The debacle reportedly occurred on a Zoom call with his colleagues at the magazine and workers from WNYC. The details of which have not been released.

Toobin will be taking time off from The New Yorker as they investigate the incident, according to The New York Post, as well as from his job as a chief legal analyst for CNN, according to Deadline.

“Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted,” said CNN.

‘No Plans Yet’, Cuban Says About His Purchase of Abandoned Texas Town of Mustang

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
