    Town & Country magazine has withdrawn its invitation to Monica Lewinsky to attend its Philanthropy Summit because it appeared that former US President Bill Clinton would be present at the event.

    The former White House intern, who made global headlines after her extramarital affair with Bill Clinton came to light in the 1990s, tweeted that her invitation to the magazine’s annual philanthropic summit about “social change” was rescinded after the ex-POTUS confirmed that he’d join the lineup. In her tweet, Lewinsky mentioned an American author, Emily Post, who became famous for writing about etiquette, saying that she “would def not approve” of Town and Country’s move.

    Although Clinton attended the event to introduce a proponent of gun control, his spokesman said that the former president was not aware that Lewinsky was uninvited.

    Social media users were quick to react to the news, with many voicing support for Lewinsky…

    …others, however, did not mince words while reminding her of the mistake she had made in the past:

    In February, Lewinsky wrote an essay for Vanity Fair, describing her sexual relationship with then-President Clinton as full of “inappropriate abuse of authority, station, and privilege.” The affair first came to light in 1998 and laid grounds for an impeachment process against Clinton.
