Here’s Why Monica Lewinsky left a Televised Interview When Asked About Bill Clinton

Monica Lewinsky

Activist and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky has explained why she left a live interview with an Israeli broadcaster.

She had given a speech on the positives and perils of the internet and there was supposed to be a 15-minute televised conversation on the subject, she said.

But she added that the anchor Yonit Levi‘s “off limits” question, was a “blatant disregard for our agreement.”

Levi had asked her if she still expected a personal apology from former U.S. President Bill Clinton over the fallout from their affair circa 1998, according to Time.

Lewinsky responded: “I’m so sorry. I’m not going to be able to do this.” Then she left the stage.

“In fact, the exact question the interviewer asked first, she had put to me when we met the day prior. I said that was off limits. I left because it is more important than ever for women to stand up for themselves and not allow others to control their narrative. To the audience: I’m very sorry that this talk had to end this way,” Lewinsky said in a tweet on Monday.

A statement by the broadcaster – Israeli News Company’s spokesman Alon Shani said: “The question asked was legitimate, worthy and respectful and in no way deviated from Ms. Lewinsky’s request.”

    She did the right thing. Some people will forever want you to hold on to your mistakes and the past. God pass then so na unto future things.
