A New York high school teacher is under investigation after he was allegedly caught masturbating during a Google Meet call on Monday, International Business Times reports.

The alleged perpetrator, who remains unidentified, works at Tottenville High School in Staten Island. A New York Police Department spokesperson confirmed to the Times that the teacher allegedly appeared naked and started masturbating during a video conference call on Monday.

At the time of the alleged incident, students were advised to work independently away from the video call while two teachers stayed on the call in case they had questions. It is unclear whether any students witnessed the alleged act or if the teacher intentionally exposed himself.

“This extremely disturbing alleged behavior has absolutely no place in our schools and was reported to the NYPD,” a Department of Education spokeswoman told the Staten Island Advance. “The teacher was immediately reassigned away from students pending the outcome of an investigation.”

As of Wednesday, the investigation was still ongoing. The NYPD did not immediately respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment on Friday morning.

The alleged Tottenville High School act comes less than two months after Jeffrey Toobin, former legal analyst and reporter for the New Yorker, exposed his penis during a Zoom meeting. Toobin was subsequently fired from the New Yorker, and “Zoom Dick” became a Twitter trend when the initial news broke. 

This is not the first time this week that Staten Island made the news for unsavory reasons. On Wednesday night, hundreds of anti-lockdown demonstrators congregated outside Mac’s Public House on Staten Island to protest its closure and the arrest of its owner for violating local coronavirus restrictions.
