Monica Lewinsky Shuts Down Interview & Storms Off Stage After Being Asked About Bill Clinton
It’s been a long time since Monica Lewinsky graced headlines regarding her relationship with former President Bill Clinton.
Unfortunately, the 45-year-old is back on news radar for that reason. Lewinsky ended an interview at a conference in Jerusalem on Monday, after interviewer Yonit Levi asked if she still felt she deserved a personal apology from the former POTUS. This was in reference to the “inappropriate relationship” that ultimately led to Clinton’s impeachment and the TV personality’s notoriety in 1998.
In a clip captured from the conference, here’s the question from Levi that started it all:
“Former President Bill Clinton was rather irate when he was asked, if he ever apologized to you personally, and he said ‘I apologized publically.’ Do you still expect that apology? A personal apology?”
Before storming off stage, the activist and designer replied:
“I’m so sorry, I’m not going to be able to do this.”
Lewinsky says she and the interviewer agreed the day before, that asking about Clinton would be off limits. The former White House intern turned activist was at the Israeli conference to give a speech about cyber bullying, not comment on the past.
