Town & Country Magazine is in hot water for doing something really, really rude to Monica Lewinsky. She was scheduled to appear at an event the magazine was hosting but was uninvited when former President Bill Clinton came on board to introduce a guest at the event. So Lewinsky has been abused by Clinton one more time…that must feel awful.

Film director Judd Aptow tweeted:

“This is what everyone is fighting against. @townandcountry should be ashamed of themselves. Do they let their heads of the magazine prey on their interns? Would they disinvite them after abusing their power to get what they wanted from them?” movie director Judd Apatow wrote.

Monica Lewinsky tweeted Wednesday that she was uninvited from an event after the group informed her former President Bill Clinton had accepted an invitation.

Ms. Lewinsky did not say what the event entailed, or who was hosting, but she did add that they offered her a magazine profile in exchange for uninviting her.

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


“p.s. …and definitely, please don’t try to ameliorate the situation by insulting me with an offer of an article in your mag,” she added.

Ms. Lewinsky was a White House intern in the late 1990s during Mr. Clinton’s presidency. The two had a sexual relationship that later became public during an investigation into Mr. Clinton for a previous sexual harassment claim.
She was widely ridiculed during the time the scandal broke, but the recent wave of women coming out with their own stories of sexual harassment in the workplace has changed some people’s perception of her.

Ms. Lewinsky has also become a voice in the #MeToo movement and said that even decades after her own experience she is still trying to understand what happened. Many women have changed the nationwide conversation to focus more on an imbalance of power in these relationships, like Ms. Lewinsky and Mr. Clinton, rather than just on criminal sexual assault.
