Monica Lewinsky Claps Back At Magazine Over Invitation Clash With Bill Clinton

    It’s been 20 years since Monica Lewinsky’s affair with then-president Bill Clinton went public, but she still faces backlash.

    The anti-bullying activist took to Twitter on Wednesday to express her frustrations over an unnamed publication inviting her to an event regarding social change, only to rescind the offer when Clinton expressed interest.

    The tweet garnered thousands of favorites and retweets. Much of the comments were filled with encouragement and support.

    Lewinsky has been vocal in recent years about making the internet a safer, more positive space. In 2016, she helped create #BeStrong anti-bullying emojis, which are designed as symbols of compassion and support. As she told Kveller earlier this year, the emojis “can be used to help a target of cyberbullying know they are not alone.”
