Monica Lewinsky is offering a plea to anyone planning to invite her to a party.

“Dear world: Please don’t invite me to an event (esp one about social change) and — then after I’ve accepted — uninvite me because Bill Clinton then decided to attend/was invited. It’s 2018. Emily Post would def not approve. Me.”


The 44-year-old tweeted the remarks Wednesday, following up with “P.S. …and definitely, please don’t try to ameliorate the situation by insulting me with an offer of an article in your mag.”


Many of Lewinsky’s 248,000 followers offered their support, citing the situation as “infuriating” and “gross.”

Lewinsky didn’t reveal the name of the event, but on Thursday Town & Country magazine, came forward and apologized. 


The magazine, which is published by Hearst, threw its annual philanthropy summit in New York City, during which Bill Clinton introduced gun-control advocate and Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez. A representative from Hearst did not return Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment.

Clinton and Lewinsky had a bombshell affair in the 1990s when she was a White House intern and he was president, a scandal that shook his marriage to Hillary Clinton and marred his administration. In the years that followed, Lewinsky became a national joke and she withdrew from the spotlight. But she has become a significant presence in the #MeToo movement, writing a March essay for Vanity Fair describing herself as being “gaslighted” by Clinton, a man who abused his “authority, station, and privilege” due to his powerful position and their age gap (she was 22, he was 49). 

Lewinsky, who calls herself a “bullying-prevention activist,” has also become more vocal on social media. In May, when Senator Marco Rubio slammed a story about his position on taxes by tweeting, “Although written by [an] intern at Politico….” Lewinsky fired back, “Blaming the intern is so 1990’s.”


And in November, after HLN network ran a headline that read “HLN to revisit ‘The Monica Lewinsky Scandal’ with two-hour special,” Lewinsky doctored the photo to replace “The Monica Lewinsky Scandal” to “The Starr Investigation” and “The Clinton Impeachment,” as they related to the affair.

“Fixed it for you,” she tweeted. “You’re welcome.”
