A 2019 tweet from suspended New Yorker reporter Jeffrey Toobin went viral Monday after the CNN contributor exposed himself during a Zoom call.
“Forty percent of the Republican appointees to the Supreme Court have been credibly accused of sexual misconduct,” Toobin tweeted in September 2019 along with the hashtag #SCOTUS.

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” Toobin said. “I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers. I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”
