Monica Lewinsky rose to fame after admitting that she had an “inappropriate relationship” with former US President Bill Clinton, who got impeached after news about the affair broke out.
Recently, Twitter was filled with tweets that included the hashtag #MeToo, which dealt with women who have been sexually assaulted or harassed, so Monica Lewinsky also used it in one of her tweets:
— Monica Boo-insky (@MonicaLewinsky) October 16, 2017
Lewinsky’s tweet was made in reference to this one:
To all the women sharing stories of sexual assault and sexual harassment, thank you for your bravery to speak up. You are not alone. #MeToo

While on the subject of sex scandals – let’s mention Harvey Weinstein.
Fox News reported that Weinstein was the first to support Bill Clinton when he was battling allegations he lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
The Washington Post reported that Weinstein, who is now accused of sexual harassment and assault by numerous women, paid $10,000 to Clinton’s legal defense fund.
This makes it why Hillary Clinton waited days before expressing complete disapproval of what Weinstein was accused of. Over the years, Weinstein donated more than $46,000 to Clinton’s various campaigns.
However, even after Hillary said that she was “shocked and appalled” by the allegations against the producer, she focused on talking about the allegations against President Trump, reports The Conservative Fighters.
On the other hand, Lewinsky said that even after nearly 20 years, her name is still in the headlines a lot because of her history-making story. For People Magazine, she said:
“There are many ways that I have been able to move forward but there are certainly times [like] with that meme that was going around, where I’m still held frozen in amber from incidents from two decades past.”
When Monica Lewinsky first started thinking about making a PSA for Bullying Prevention Month, she wanted to bring attention to this:
“I wanted to creatively demonstrate the difference between our online and offline behavior in a thought-provoking way.”
While talking about the video, she said that the most important part of it was “how people hiding behind a screen will write something they’d never say to someone’s face — and what that says about the inhumanity of their actions. It’s a stark and shocking mirror to people to rethink how we behave online versus the ways that we would behave in person,” something she is familiar with.
